27th RAU

The LNLS 27th Annual Users’ Meeting (RAU) will take place from 22nd to 24th November, 2017, at the CNPEM campus in Campinas, SP.

The RAU meeting aims to gather the LNLS users community, encouraging the exchange of experiences and debates on the existing and future facilities. It is an important forum for discussion, evaluation and presentation of proposals for the improvement of the research structures and of the scientific instrumentation available at the synchrotron light source. The meeting represents also an opportunity for the exchange of information about the research carried out at the facilities.

With the ground break of Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, the participation of the scientific community becomes essential in order to describe their needs in present and what are their expectations on the new synchrotron source. The RAU meeting is the ideal place to foster this debate.
