The 2nd User Workshop of the Extreme Light Infrastructure – Attosecond Light Pulse Source [ELI-ALPS] will be held in Szeged, Hungary, from 11-12 September 2014.

The ELI-ALPS based in Szeged, Hungary, is part of the ESFRI roadmap that will be the first international facility with the mission to make a wide range of ultrafast light sources accessible to international user groups. ELI-ALPS is expected to be partially available in 2016, while it will become fully operational for user-based research in 2018.

The 2nd User Workshop focuses on research that could be conducted at ELI-ALPS in the scientific areas of material science and chemistry related applications. Its mission is to brainstorm research and technology that could be optimally and/or uniquely hosted by ELI-ALPS.

Registration and participation are free of charge but registration is required and should be received by 25 August 2014. Poster can be submitted by the 28 July 2014.

Further information is available on the workshop website.
