The Advanced Photon Source (APS), the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) and the Electron Microscopy Center (EMC) at Argonne National Laboratory invite industrial scientists and engineers to attend a one-day workshop to learn more about Argonne National Laboratory and the capabilities/techniques available for use by industry. This workshop will showcase several successful industrial user experiments, as well as explain the different ways in which industrial scientists can work at Argonne or with Argonne scientists. Examples of how to write a successful user proposal and collaborate with user facility staff will be highlighted.  Representatives from the participating user facilities as well as from Argonne's Technology Development and Commercialization (TDC) Department will be available to conduct one-on-one discussions with individuals regarding the feasibility of research ideas, proprietary research opportunities, etc.  The workshop will conclude with tours of the different user facilities and give participants the opportunity to interact directly with scientists at the different facilities.
