Event Name

Ultrafast X-ray Summer School (UXSS2017)

Start Date 12th Jun 2017
End Date 15th Jun 2017

UXSS is an annual event jointly organized by the Center for
Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) at DESY and the PULSE institute at
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.  As you can see from the list of
speakers below, the program will be highly interdisciplinary, with
topics ranging from accelerator physics to molecular biology.  There
will also be a coursework exercise involving a mock proposal for the
European XFEL, with the help of experienced mentors.

Registration will open on the 31st January 2017.  Please
note that the number of summer school participants will be limited. In
order to facilitate the selection of participants, we ask applicants to
provide a short description of their educational and scientific
background and their motivation for applying for participation in UXSS
2017.  The registration deadline will be the 31 March 2017.

Financial support for UXSS 2017 is very kindly provided by the Joachim
Herz Stiftung, meaning that participants will be asked to pay a
registration fee of only 100 EUR.  Accepted applicants will receive
a financial contribution towards travel and accommodation expenses.
