The ESRF is nearing completion of the first phase of its Upgrade Programme that has seen significant changes made to more than half of its beamlines. With the expected Phase II of the Upgrade Programme in the conception stage, the meeting will host exciting exchange among users, beamline staff and Management on the present and future of the ESRF.

The plenary meeting will host five lectures by invited speakers on recent major scientific advances in a range of different research fields. Parallel sessions and workshops will provide participants with plenty of opportunity to find out about and discuss the large spectrum of ESRF activities.
