The 29th MAX IV Laboratory User Meeting (UM17)
UM17 will take place in the centre of Lund with general sessions at Stadshallen on Monday 13 March and Wednesday 15 March. Parallel scientific sessions will take place at Grand Hotel on Tuesday 14 March.
On the first day we will discuss the state of the MAX IV Laboratory regarding different aspects and look at what has happened, what is happening and what is the outlook and prospects for the laboratory, the machine and the beamlines. We will also have a look at the ESS. The annual meeting for our user organisation FASM will also take place during this day. The day will be finished at the Laboratory itself, with a poster session on the experimental floor and a chance to visit some of the beamlines.
During the second day we will have 4 parallel sessions covering the science that we will support at the Laboratory. The titles of these sessions are Life Science, Environmental and Earth Sciences, Quantum Systems and Processes, New Materials and Energy (see more info below).
At the end of this day we will have our UM 17 dinner at the Grand Hotel.
The last day we will look at common issues that users face when doing experiments at research infrastructures such as MAX IV and the ESS. This covers topics as advanced sample environments at beamlines, data handling and management, scientific data analysis, access, guest-housing, travel and an introduction to the industrial liaison office. Finally we will announce the awards for the best thesis using data from the MAX IV Laboratory as well as the best poster award.
