French User Workshop ended with success

The workshop was jointly organized by the ELI-Delivery Consortium and the CNRS, in partnership with the CEA, 5-7 July 2017 at the CNRS Headquarters in Paris. The event addressed a broad scientific community (physicists, biologists, chemists, physicians …) with the aim to present the wide range of new ultrashort laser and energetic particles sources at ELI and on the Paris-Saclay campus in France to serve fundamental research and multidisciplinary applications. Facilities and examples of potential research projects were presented during 6 scientific sessions.

The workshop also provided a platform for extensive exchanges between scientists and beamlines/instruments supervisors at the three ELI pillars and at Paris-Saclay facilities. Ample room for asking questions and for discussions between all stakeholders was available in each session.

The program extended over two full days of scientific sessions, gathered over 80 participants, and additionally included a visit of the ultrahigh-power (CILEX/APOLLON) and ultrafast (ATTOLAB) laser infrastructures on the L’Orme des Merisiers Campus.
