The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility User Meeting is an annual event dedicated to the ESRF user community learn about, discuss and experience the science and cutting-edge research made with ESRF synchrotron light.
The event will take place from 3 - 5 February 2020 and will include 8 tutorial sessions, a plenary session, and three user-dedicated microsymposia. The four keynote speakers of the plenary session will give a flavour of the cutting-edge research which can be carried out with the help of the ESRF, and of the important challenges facing the European synchrotron and FEL user facilities and communities. The full programme can be found here.
There is also an opportunity to submit an abstract for the User-Dedicated Microsymposium "Multi-crystal and serial data collection in Structural Biology". This symposium will take place on 5 February 2020 and is dedicated to attracting and stimulating exchange among ESRF Structural Biology users on multi-crystal diffraction strategies and serial crystallography. Both fixed target and injector based serial experiments as well as data analysis (see also the associated tutorials on fixed target data analysis by hierarchical cluster analysis and genetic algorithms) will be covered. It will furthermore be an opportunity to discuss new research directions which can fully exploit the unprecedented capabilities of EBS MX beamlines.
