SUM 2016

21- 22 january 2016 Ecole polytechnique et SOLEIL


A look back with drawings at SOLEIL Users' Meeting 2016


The 11th SOLEIL Users’ Meeting will take place on January 21st and 22nd, 2016 at Polytechnique (Palaiseau) and at SOLEIL.

The meeting provides an invaluable forum for the synchrotron radiation user community, presenting an important opportunity to obtain the latest information on beamline performance at SOLEIL, to hear about the latest and most exciting results obtained at SOLEIL and to share scientific, technical and practical issues about the synchrotron radiation use.

The meeting will take the form of 3 plenary lectures:

  • Biology / Health
  • Surfaces / Interfaces
  • Chemistry

Technical workshops will be organized on the following topics:

half-day parallel sessions in which scientific presentations, selected from submitted abstracts, will be presented (deadline for submission: November 23rd, 2015).

In the meantime, the draftswoman Aurélie Bordenave will be present both at Polytechnique and at SOLEIL from 9 am to 7:30 pm. Through her drawings, she will give her vision of the event in a humoristic and unusual way

A social programme with a buffet dinner will be held at SOLEIL on the afternoon of January 21st in conjunction with the poster session, commercial exhibitions and visits of the Facility.

A satellite workshop will be held on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th of January, 2016 at SOLEIL:

HI-SPEAR (High Resolution Spectroscopies for Applied Research)
