ALBA synchrotron, new instrumentation for Nanoscience and Molecular Materials Characterization,
November 14-15, 2013

This workshop is an ALBA initiative co-funded by ALBA and the "Grupo Especializado en Nanociencia y Materiales Moleculares" (MAM) from the "Real Sociedad Española de Química (RSEQ) y de Física (RSEF) ".

ALBA, the first Spanish synchrotron, is currently offering new experimental tools for the scientific community in Spain and all over the world. One of its main objectives is to promote the use of synchrotron light among those researchers still being unfamiliar with the associated instrumentation and its analytical possibilities. Thus, the goal of this workshop is to describe the available tools and the potential of the current ALBA beamlines to the Spanish scientific community, and in particular to the MAM within the RSEQ and RSEF.

The above workshop will take place at the ALBA Synchrotron Light Source in Cerdanyola del Vallès, near Barcelona, and will consist of a two-day meeting at the end of this year, starting on November 14th @3pm and finishing on November 15th @1pm. During the first day, the attendants will learn about the current experimental endstations at ALBA and will get a complete overview of all the experimental possibilities available at the ALBA beamlines. After that, the focus will be put onto the beamlines that are of special interest for the chemists and physicists' community: CLAESS, CIRCE and MSPD. The second day, a visit to the current beamlines in the ALBA Experimental Hall will be performed; After that, a poster exhibition will take place. The attendants will have the opportunity to show their main research topics in order to get a feedback from the ALBA scientists on how the ALBA beamlines could contribute to promote their research.

This workshop has no registration fees in order to encourage attendance. There is a limited attendance of 50 people. If you have already registered but cannot attend we would appreciate if you could notify us as soon as possible in order to allow for other individuals in the waiting list to join the workshop. We will take care of the transportation (hotel to ALBA and ALBA to hotel) to facilitate the attendance of all interested researchers.
