Open Meeting

After a year of dreaming big about the future of the APS, it's time to begin translating talk into reality. This step is the focus of an important half-day open meeting to be held April 15, 2005, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the 402 Auditorium.

The APS Experimental Facilities Division, the APS Users Organization, and the Partner User Council invite the entire APS community to attend this meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to have an open review and discussion of recent strategic planning at the APS and approaches for implementation.

The agenda will include presentations of initial plans for implementing dedicated facilities on the experiment floor and for joining the strong scientific facilities of the independent Collaborative Access Teams with the plans for X-ray Operations and Research. The goal is to develop a common plan for the APS that includes all activities on the floor.
