The Ultrafast X-ray Summer School (UXSS) 2017 will take place at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, 12-15 June 2017.
UXSS is an annual event jointly organized by the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) at DESY and the PULSE institute at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. As you can see from the list of speakers below, the program will be highly interdisciplinary, with topics ranging from accelerator physics to molecular biology. There will also be a coursework exercise involving a mock proposal for the European XFEL, with the help of experienced mentors.
Registration is now open. Please note that the number of summer school participants will be limited. In order to facilitate the selection of participants, we ask applicants to provide a short description of their educational and scientific background and their motivation for applying for participation in UXSS 2017.
The registration deadline will be the 31 March 2017.
Financial support for UXSS 2017 is very kindly provided by the Joachim Herz Stiftung, meaning that participants will be asked to pay a registration fee of only 100 EUR. Accepted applicants will receive a financial contribution towards travel and accommodation expenses.
