From the Associate Director

Though deep into winter, this newsletter is loaded with forward looking plans. We're really excited about the upcoming BioSAXS workshop, User's Meeting and summer science workshops - check the list below for deadlines to nominate User's Executive Committee members and graduate students for our annual paper prize. This edition also announces a number of "firsts" published by CHESS users including resonant inelastic scattering, developing rechargeable lithium metal batteries, and realizing the first self-assembled superconducting material. And to dazzle the eyes, check out the announcement of a striking new website for our outreach and education team - Xraise. Finally, I'd like to invite all of our users to let us know about publications, advances, and even human interests stories about you and your research; we enjoy sharing stories that keep CHESS relevant to your research and make us all feel like parts of a larger community.
