SUM 2019 "SOLEIL Users Meeting"

17-18 janvier 2019

The 14th SOLEIL Users’ Meeting will take place on January 17th and 18th, 2019 at CentraleSupélec - Bâtiment EIFFEL and at SOLEIL.

This invaluable forum for the synchrotron radiation users’ community will provide, this year, the opportunity to exchange and learn about the evolution of the machine and the beamlines.

It will be also the occasion to share scientific, technical and practical issues about the synchrotron radiation use.

The 2 plenary lectures will deal with different aspects related to recent and future synchrotron sources evolutions.

  • Biology and Health,
  • Surfaces/Interfaces/Electronic properties

Scientific communications will be presented during parallel sessions, selected from submitted abstracts (deadline for submission: November 26th, 2018).

A social programme will be held at CentraleSupélec - Bâtiment EIFFEL on the afternoon of January 17th, in conjunction with the posters session and commercial exhibitions. Then,  a visit of beamlines, as well as 2 Forum-Discussions and the buffet will take place at SOLEIL.

The Roger Fourme prize award (student poster best prize) will be held before the buffet.

Two tutoriols will be organized at SOLEIL on Friday January 18th, 2019:
