2021 SSRL/LCLS Users Meeting
September 20th - 24th, 2021
About the Event
The joint Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) and the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) Users' Conference will be held VIRTUALLY! Registration is still open during the week of the conference. There is no cost, but you must register to access the sessions and workshops! Poster Submission Deadline: CLOSED
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 can learn about current/future facility capabilities and the latest user research and discuss science with colleagues from academia, research laboratories, and industry worldwide.
Come join us remotely for the opportunity to join the following sessions for
scientific exchange, discussions, and awards:
– Plenary Sessions – Keynote Talks – Award Presentations
– Scientific Workshops – Poster Sessions – Townhall Discussions – Breakout Sessions
Young Investigator Awards and Presentations:
SSRL William E. and Diane M. Spicer Young Investigator Award
SSRL Melvin P. Klein Scientific Development Award
Pittsburgh Diffraction Conference (PDC)
September 19-21, 2021
The 78th Annual Pittsburgh Diffraction Conference is a three-day event featuring lectures and poster presentations. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers in all areas of fundamental and applied diffraction and crystallographic research to present current topics. The program includes femtosecond diffraction methods, hybrid methods for structural biology, powder diffraction and material science research, new ideas in crystallography and exciting macromolecular structures.
Participants wishing to present a poster during the PDC poster session (September 20, 4-6PM PDT) please submit abstracts by September 10, 2021 (https://smb.slac.stanford.edu/news/PDC-2021/abstracts.html).
The best graduate student poster presentations at the conference will be awarded with the Chung Soo Yoo Award and a $400 cash prize. One award will be given to a poster related to biological research and one to a poster related to materials science or chemistry.

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.
Explore our facilities and learn about our exciting research through this interactive tour.
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.
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.
