Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the 30th MAX IV User Meeting – Coherent Visions (UM18) in Lund, 
24-26 September 2018.

Registration is now open for all participants – general participants and students, invited speakers, staff and chairs, as well as exhibitors.

Each year the user meeting is tailored to the specific needs and interests of all concerned. To that end different groups have been invited and included to contribute towards the meeting contents. MAX IV now has both the 3 GeV and 1.5 GeV storage rings in operation and external users from the structural biology, spectroscopy and nanoscience research fields.

The User Meeting aims to promote exchange among the participants within and across each field. Information on the meeting contents and sessions will be updated at the web site.

The meeting venue for all the presentations and sessions is the Scandic Star hotel in Lund.

We look forward to welcome you to the present and future MAX IV user community!
