Andrea Lausi (Elettra Synchrotron Trieste, Italy and lightsources.org) will talk about LAAMP during his plenary lecture entitled "Cooperative brightness" at the 7a Reunión de Usuarios de Luz Sincrotrón, which will be help in León, Guanajuato, Mexico on 3 to 6 October 2017.
A thematic session sponsored by LAAMP and entitled "Light Sources and Crystallographic Sciences for Sustainable Development" has been approved to be part of the programme of the next World Science Forum.
It only takes few minutes to fill in the LAAMP survey and help develop a database of AdLS and crystallography users, and facilities used in the targeted regions of the project. Do it now!
