Register now: May 6-9 APS/CNM Users Meeting

Join us for networking, technical workshops, plenary sessions, a vendor expo, social events and short courses.

The annual joint Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) and Advanced Photon Source (APS) Users Meeting is held at Argonne National Laboratory, just 30 minutes from Chicago. All are welcome to join us!

Dates: May 6-9, 2019

Location: Argonne National Laboratory



The event attracts more than 400 researchers each year. This is an opportunity for you to network with researchers from around the globe, learn about the latest in cutting-edge science, and discover how the tools and capabilities at CNM and APS can benefit your research. 

A variety of activities are available to you including technical workshops that highlight and stimulate user science, plenary sessions, poster sessions, a vendor expo, social events and CNM short courses. A Best Student Poster Award competition is also held for students who have used CNM over the last year.

About Argonne’s Center for Nanoscale Materials
The Center for Nanoscale Materials is one of the five DOE Nanoscale Science Research Centers, premier national user facilities for interdisciplinary research at the nanoscale supported by the DOE Office of Science. Together the NSRCs comprise a suite of complementary facilities that provide researchers with state-of-the-art capabilities to fabricate, process, characterize and model nanoscale materials, and constitute the largest infrastructure investment of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The NSRCs are located at DOE’s Argonne, Brookhaven, Lawrence Berkeley, Oak Ridge, Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories.
