The SRI2010 meeting is an excellent opportunity to meet with scientists and engineers who design, build, and conduct research at synchrotron facilities throughout the Americas.
This is an incredibly exciting time for synchrotron radiation facilities, with significant advances in instrumentation happening in step with expansions and upgrades at these facilities! For example:
- The Advanced Photon Source (Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL) is planning for a $350M Upgrade of its accelerator and experimental facilities.
- The $912M NSLS-2 (Brookhaven National Lab, Upton, NY) project began construction in 2009, and is slated for completion in 2015.
- Operations at the LCLS (Stanford Linear Accelerator Complex, Menlo Park, CA), the world’s first hard x-ray laser, began in 2009.
- The Brazilian Government has announced plans for a new 3rd generation synchrotron, the LNLS-2, which will be a low-emittance 2.5GeV storage ring.
- J-Lab (Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Newport News, VA) received $310M in 2008 for an upgrade to12GeV, slated for completion in 2015.
Participating synchrotron facilities at the SRI2010 meeting include:
- Advanced Light Source (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory)
- Advanced Photon Source (Argonne National Laboratory)
- Canadian Light Source (Saskatoon, Canada)
- Center for Advanced Microstructures & Devices (Louisiana State University)
- Cornell High-Energy Synchrotron Source (Cornell University)
- J-Lab (Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility)
- Laboratório Nacional de Luz Síncrotron (Campinas, Brazil)
- Linear Coherent Light Source (Stanford Linear Accelerator Complex)
- National Synchrotron Light Source (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
- National Synchrotron Light Source – II (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
- Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (Stanford University)
- Synchrotron Radiation Center (University of Wisconsin, Madison)
Exhibitors will be able to integrate their company’s participation in the Conference via a variety of sponsorship opportunities (details will be sent at a later date). Vendor ad space in the Conference program book is available for purchase. Even if you are unable to attend this year, you can still give your company some great visibility at this exciting venue by purchasing ad space in the program book or choosing to sponsor.
The exhibitor fee is $1250 for two attendees and includes the Conference welcoming reception and two days of lunches and twice-daily coffee breaks. Conference banquet tickets for The Signature Room at the 95th atop Chicago’s John Hancock Building may be purchased separately. Exhibitor set-up will be on Tuesday afternoon, September 21. Booth tear down will take place on Friday, September 24 after the morning coffee break. Additional vendor attendees may register to participate in the meeting for a fee of $390 per person (this cost includes lunch and other daily activities but excludes the banquet).
