2020 Virtual SSRL/LCLS Users’ Meeting

About the Event

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.
