About 150 physicists and engineers attended the 7th Elettra Users' Meeting that took place in the ICTP Main Lecture Hall on 29-30 November. The program included reports on the status of Elettra's beamlines (whose number will double over the next year from nine to 18), new research projects, and the facility's latest experimental results focusing, for example, on the physics of superconducting materials and the structure of proteins. The meeting was followed by a satellite workshop, "Reactions at Surfaces," hosted at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA). Links between ICTP and Elettra were strengthened earlier this year after the creation of ICTP's Synchrotron Radiation Theory Group headed by Massimo Altarelli, chief executive officer and scientific director of the Elettra synchrotron light source located in Trieste's Area Science Park.
