Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation Conference

August 22-24 2001 - Madison, Wisconsin



     The 12th U.S. National Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation Conference will be held August 22-24, 2001 at the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin – Madison campus and is hosted by the University of Wisconsin Synchrotron Radiation Center.

     The conference includes oral and poster presentations related to recent developments in synchrotron sources, instrumentation, experimental techniques, detectors, IR advances, beamline optics, lithography, and other exciting areas of synchrotron research. Facility posters will also be presented. The proceedings will be published in Review of Scientific Instruments. All registered participants will receive a printed copy of the proceedings.

     A tour of the Synchrotron Radiation Center with an evening picnic, the traditional conference banquet, and the friendly and inviting atmosphere of the University of Wisconsin campus will provide opportunity for stimulating conversation with colleagues in a relaxing setting.

     Abstracts must be submitted for all papers for consideration by March 1, 2001. Your abstract may be submitted using the online (text only) form or by using the MS Word 6.0/95 template. Mailed and faxed abstracts will also be accepted if received by March 1, 2001, however, electronic format is preferred. Abstracts may be mailed to:

     Two exciting workshops are also planned. The first is an all day workshop on August 21, 2001 and is titled Synchrotron Radiation Opportunities Based on Superconducting Linacs and is being organized by Don Bilderback (CHESS), Sol Gruner (CHESS), Chi-Chang Kao (BNL) and Gwyn Williams (TJNAF).

     The second workshop is a half-day workshop on Friday, August 24, 2001 following the conference. The workshop is titled User Requirements for Beam Stability and is being organized by Joe Bisognano (SRC) and Mike Green (SRC)


Facility Reports and Posters

     We welcome facility reports and posters to SRI 2001. Facility reports will require an abstract and papers will be due at the beginning of the conference. Papers will be limited to 3 printed pages and will follow the same guidelines for authors as for other contributions. We encourage a facility poster to go with the formal paper. Facility posters will be displayed throughout the conference. Facility posters without the accompanying paper are acceptable, but we would ask for notification that you intend to present a poster by sending e-mail to SRI2001@SRC.WISC.EDU.  For paper and poster information please see the Author Guidelines.
