The joint Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) Users' Conference will be held VIRTUALLY!
To facilitate participation by our international User community, we are planning for shorter sessions primarily scheduled in the mornings and early afternoon (Pacific).
There is no cost to register, but you must register to access the sessions and workshops. The registration deadline is 5pm Pacific Time, September 25th.
Every year, thousands of scientists from universities, laboratories, and private companies around the world use our cutting-edge research facilities. Their discoveries benefit a wide range of fields, including materials and energy sciences, chemistry, biology, medicine, environmental science, engineering, astronomy, and physics.
This annual meeting is a unique opportunity to gather together the lightsource community in a single scientific event that includes numerous presentations in plenary, poster, and parallel sessions. Participants are able to learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research as well as to discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
As one of 17 Department of Energy national labs, SLAC pushes the frontiers of human knowledge and drives discoveries that benefit humankind. We invent the tools that make those discoveries possible and share them with scientists all over the world.
SSRL provides extremely bright X-rays for a wide range of experiments that probe matter down to the scale of atoms and molecules. These studies target advances in energy production, human health, environmental cleanup, nanotechnology, novel materials and information technology, among other areas.
LCLS produces ultrafast pulses of X-ray laser light a billion times brighter than any previous X-ray source, allowing researchers to freeze the motions of atoms and molecules and string those images together to make stop-motion movies.
SLAC is operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time
