lecture 2nd European XFEL Users' Meeting
Date/Time: from Wednesday, January 23, 2008 (09:40) to Thursday, January 24, 2008 (13:00) (Europe/Berlin)
Location: DESY-HH
Support xfel-workshops@desy.de
The XFEL Users’ Meeting is an annual opportunity to deepen the interaction between the European XFEL Project and the scientific user community; this year it will be focused on:

Informing the scientific community about the progress and current status of the European XFEL project. 

Discussing the scientific scope of the facility, and exploring possible fields of science that have not been discussed so far. 

Defining the priorities for undulators and experimental stations for the first construction phase.

Informing the scientific community about job opportunities at the European XFEL.
