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 15 minute 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.

We particularly encourage presentations and/or posters from PhD students.

Special topics for discussion include the new HiLUX facility, new methods on data analysis and developments on Correlative Microscopy in Octopus.

The meeting will start at lunchtime on the 27th and end mid-afternoon on the 29th, with a user consultation session on the 28th. Poster sessions and conference dinners will be held in the evenings.

​The deadline for registration is the 13th February 2023. 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 will be available on the registration form.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
