In February 2011 Grenoble will be more than ever the place to gather for all European scientists interested in cutting-edge research using synchrotron radiation. The 21st ESRF Users' Meeting will take place at the ESRF site between 7 - 10 February 2011 and will feature three associated workshops coupled with a plenary meeting devoted to recent advances and future directions in science at the facility.

Parallel sessions and a joint poster session will give the opportunity to enjoy exciting new science and to debate the scientific prospects of the Upgrade Programme.
