Users Week 2008
May 4 - 8, 2008

Advanced Photon Source - Center for Nanoscale Materials - Electron Microscopy Center

This year's meeting features three science sessions, nine full-day workshops, two half-day workshops, facility tours--and the world premiere of a play about the intersection of science and art. Regular registration is $250; the student fee is $50. Special opportunities for students include poster prizes and a competition to present a science session talk. Please note the poster deadline, March 31: We may have space limitations this year, so timely submission of abstracts is important. And don't miss the banquet! This year we visit the spectacular Shedd Aquarium on Chicago's lakefront.
