Users Group Workshop and Annual Meeting
"2008 JLab Users Group Meeting"
June 16-18, 2008
Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA
The 2008 JLab Users Group Annual Meeting will take place on Monday June 16th through Wednesday June 18th. Please reserve these dates and plan to attend.
The program includes presentations from the Users Group Board, lab management, and funding agencies, talks from our recent Prize Winners, and talks on physics of direct interest to our research programs at the laboratory. Your participation is important, and we strongly encourage everyone to register now, and make plans to attend.
We particularly encourage graduate students to attend the annual meeting. The thesis prize winner will be present to talk about the award-winning research. This year we will be continuing our poster competition, with a first prize of $1000, a 2nd prize of $500, and a third prize of $250. Thanks to the Jefferson Science Associates Initiatives Fund, the registration fees for all graduate students for the Annual Meeting will be waived, and there will be a free lunch for the students. The deadline for poster competition abstracts is Friday, June 6th - and you cannot win if you do not enter. For more information, contact Aidan Kelleher.
Our community continues to face substantive issues this year, which will be discussed at the meeting. The discussion will include ongoing budgetary issues, scheduling the final years of the 6 GeV era, computing, etc. The Annual Users Group Meeting plays a central role in maintaining the coherence and effectiveness of our community. Your Users Group Board has worked hard to put together a great meeting, and we very much hope to see you there!
