The 2017 meeting for users of the CLF's Lasers for Science (Octopus and ULTRA) and Artemis facilities will be held between the 5th and 7th September at St. Catherine's College, Oxford.
Registration has now closed.
The meeting provides a unique overview of the multi-disciplinary science taking place in the CLF's Artemis, ULTRA, and Octopus facilities. Scientific areas to be covered include chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, materials, and engineering, with a focus on the interface between life and physical sciences. The meeting will also serve as a timely opportunity for the LSF and Artemis community to meet and learn about the overall science programme, discuss future requirements and new opportunities, and exchange views and ideas.
There will be a number of keynote lectures, and talks from delegates. All delegates are invited to submit titles for talks and/or posters. The User meeting seeks to provide a broad spread of presentations of the scientific programmes of the facilities and talks will be selected on this basis.
Special topics for discussion include progress towards the next generation ULTRA/Artemis facility including a new 100 kHz laser currently under construction, and developments on Correlative Microscopy in Octopus.
The meeting will start at lunchtime on the 5th and end mid-afternoon on the 7th, with a user consultation session on the 6th. A poster sessions will be held on the evenings of the 6th. Further information and a detailed programme will be available soon.
The deadline for registration was the 1st July 2017. Registrations will NOT be accepted after this date
Research Council representatives and Facility Access Panel members are also invited to attend the meeting.
Accommodation costs and travel for attending the meeting will be met by STFC. Depending on demand, it may be necessary to place restrictions on multiple delegates attending from the same research group. Spaces are limited so early registration is recommended.
Some funds have been set aside for a bursary to support childcare requirements of delegates attending the meeting. More details are on the registration form.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
