On 12 December there will be a workshop to discuss the possibilities for a
new synchrotron radiation source at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
There will be a description of the proposed source and its capabilities
for various disciplines, discussion of possibilities for funding, and
finally open discussion about facilities.  It will be VERY USEFUL for you
to attend, please, to begin to talk about the sort of facilites we'd like,
and to show support for the concept.  Your attendance will be a strong
message to the funding agencies.

Here is more information:

NSLS-II is a proposed new state-of-the-art, medium-energy storage ring
designed to deliver world-leading brightness and flux in the 0.3-20 keV
energy range with top-off operation for constant output. The superlative
character and combination of capabilities will have broad impact on a wide
range of disciplines and scientific initiatives in the coming decades.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS WORKSHOP?  All members of the scientific community,
including participants from universities, other research institutions, and
commercial, governmental and industrial organizations, who wish to provide
input and feedback on the design and direction of NSLS-II, its beamlines
and instrumentation.


o Overview of NSLS-II Perspectives by representatives from Congress, DOE,
New York State, and BNL.

o Three plenary lectures by distinguished researchers describing visions
of future scientific opportunities enabled by NSLS-II in the Life
Sciences, Materials Sciences, and Geo/Environmental Sciences.

o Breakout sessions featuring presentations on science and instrumentation
as well as open discussion. These will provide participants an opportunity
for input and feedback on NSLS-II design features, beamline
characteristics, and instrumentation concepts.

o An evening poster session and dinner will conclude the workshop.
