May 8-11, 2017 Joint APS/CNM Users Meeting
The annual joint users meetings of the Center for Nanoscale Materials and the co-located Advanced Photon Source are held at Argonne National Laboratory. Anyone is welcome to register for these meetings, which attract more than 400 registrants and 50+ vendor booths for myriad activities including technical workshops that highlight, promote, and stimulate user science; plenary sessions; poster sessions; a vendor expo; social events; and CNM short courses. A Best Student Poster Award competition is held for students who benefit from accessing the CNM.
