XFEL Users’ Meeting 2015 @ DESY
Jan 27 – Jan 30 all-day

The European XFEL Users’ Meeting 2015 will be held at DESY Hamburg on 28 – 30 January 2015. The meeting will be organized jointly with the DESY Photon Science Users’ Meeting 2015.

The programme of the meeting and other details, including registration, can be found at www.xfel.eu/2015-users-meeting

REGISTRATION

We kindly ask you to consider early registration. Please note that the deadline for a poster registration is *15 December 2014*.

BURSARIES

We are pleased to announce that we are again able to offer to a limited number of young scientists a financial contribution, depending on distance, towards travel and living expenses. All current PhD students, as well as scientists who obtained their doctoral degree after 1 January 2013 are eligible. We encourage you to forward this information to science graduate students or recent PhD’s who might be interested. Deadline for application is *Thursday, 11 December 2014*.

HOTEL ACCOMMODATION / TOURISM TAX

When booking your hotel accommodation, you should mention that you are a visitor to European XFEL / DESY. Otherwise you might be asked to pay a tourism tax on your hotel bill. A list of hotels can be found on the meeting website.

IFEXS 2016 @ Savoia Excelsior Palace
Feb 1 – Feb 3 all-day

The Workshop on Imaging with Femtosecond Electrons and X-ray pulses (IFEXS) will be held on February 1-3, 2016 at the Savoia Excelsior Palace in Trieste.

The workshop, jointly organized by CNR-IOM within the NFFA-Trieste facility programme and EPFL-Lausanne, aims to discuss the next frontier of ultrafast science regarding the advances of both electrons and photons based techniques with a special focus on the necessary cross-feeding between them.
Emphasis will be put on the complementary aspects of ultrafast electron microscopy and X-FEL based diffractive imaging techniques and on the future perspective of broadening the applicability of these tools by considering X-rays also as a chemically selective photo excitation and combining fs-X-ray beams with fs electron beams in an ad hoc modified Transmission Electron Microscope.
The program will comprise invited keynote lectures and poster presentations.
The workshop is open to all contributions (from theoretical, experimental, and simulation methods).
Deadline for submission of a two page abstract is January 7, 2016. Notification acceptance of poster presentation will be sent by January 13.
Registration is due by January 20, 2016.
Please, be advised that on-site registration will not be admitted.
On the workshop website you will find instructions for registration and abstract submission along with all relevant information about the workshop.

CECAM workshop: Non-adiabatic quantum dynamics: From Theory to Experiments @ CECAM HQ
Jul 2 – Jul 6 all-day

The CECAM workshop entitled ‘Non-adiabatic quantum dynamics: From Theory to Experiments’ (https://www.cecam.org/workshop-0-1638.html) will be held at CECAM HQ in Lausanne, Switzerland from 2nd-6th July 2018.

This workshop aims to consolidate the rapid development in the field of molecular quantum dynamics and increase the synergy between experimentalists and theoreticians in this area. The program features a number of invited presentations from leading theoreticians and experimentalists and will be supplemented by a number of talks selected from submitted abstracts.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Lausanne.

Tom Penfold on behalf of all of the co-organisers.
