The Ultrafast X-ray Summer School (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.

Date & Location:

12-15 June 2017 in Hamburg, Germany


Thomas White, CFEL, DESY and Amy Cordones-Hahn, PULSE
