SSRL/LCLS Users' Meeting

Sept. 24th – 29th, 2023 SSRL/LCLS Users’ Meeting

You’re invited to join the SSRL/LCLS Users’ Meeting, September 24th – 29th, 2023: participate in the joint onsite users’ meeting of the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

Every year, thousands of scientists from universities, laboratories, and private companies around the world use SLAC’s cutting-edge research facilities. Their discoveries benefit a wide range of fields, including materials and energy sciences, chemistry, biology, medicine, environmental science, engineering, astronomy, and physics.


SSRL provides extremely bright X-rays for a wide range of experiments that probe matter down to the scale of atoms and molecules. These studies target advances in energy production, human health, environmental cleanup, nanotechnology, novel materials and information technology, among other areas.

LCLS produces ultrafast pulses of X-ray laser light a billion times brighter than any previous X-ray source, allowing researchers to freeze the motions of atoms and molecules and string those images together to make stop-motion movies.

This annual meeting is a unique opportunity to gather together the light source community in a single scientific event that includes numerous presentations in the plenary, poster, and parallel sessions. Participants can learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research and discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.

Come join us for the opportunity to join the following sessions for scientific exchange, discussions, and awards: plenary sessions, keynote talks, award presentations, scientific workshops, poster sessions, town hall discussions, and breakout sessions.
