The last major upgrade to the BioCARS 14ID beamline, completed in 2008, produced unprecedented time-resolved capabilities that have been exploited in many areas of X-ray science spanning biology, chemistry and physics. An APS-funded upgrade aims to further expand the capabilities of the 14ID beamline for the Physical Sciences. This workshop will bring together practitioners of time-resolved X-ray science to (1) discuss current capabilities and use of 14ID, and (2) discuss future challenges, needs and opportunities provided by the APS Upgrade to this diverse scientific community.
