Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon outstation at DESY
Europe/Berlin timezone

After the first beamline jockey days in Hamburg in 2018, the beamline jockey community has met every year at different European synchrotron facilities. This year, the Hereon Imaging team is very happy to welcome you again at the DESY campus in Hamburg for the next Beamline Jockey Days.

The event is free of charge. The objective of this workshop is to create transparency about how the different beamlines tackle their individual challenges - with Efficiency optimizations at beamlines being this years topic.

Beamline life can be stressful, and (beam)time is precious. Therefore, we all 
found ways to make our daily work easier. This can for example be workflow
optimization, automated alignment procedures, efficient motor movements, 
specific user applications and manuals, or a sample changing robot. The goal 
of this workshop is to exchange our little tips and tricks, discuss common 
problems to learn from each other. 

To stimulate a fruitful exchange, we would like the speakers to not feel to have to “show off” their instruments but to present them with a focus on challenges, difficulties and solutions. It goes without saying that, in order for this to happen, the workshop must provide confidentiality which is why presentation slides and discussion notes will only be made available to others upon explicit approval of the individual speakers.
