Once again, we teamed up with our ALS colleagues to put together a booth at the American Crystallographic Association. Stacey did a terrific job organizing the booth and getting all the supplies shipped out. Stacey, Kevin, Daniil, Marc, Jane and Jay all spent lots of time at the booth talking with current and prospective users. We even got to hang out with Christine Beavers, who used to work at the ALS and is now at the Diamond Light Source. But she is a friend and an honorary ALS scientist so we were glad to have her at the booth!

Warriors fans (except Scott), LBNL fans, and the final takedown photos:
Nearly lost Simon to the poster, but the booth got made!
The BCSB teamed up with other crystallographers at the ALS to run a booth promoting the ALS beamlines. Marc and Diane gave remote demos of the beamlines at the booth, showing how easy it was to connect to and run the BCSB beamlines remotely, even over a wireless connection at a large conference. And Diane presented a poster on the diode beamstop she has designed and built, garnering lots of interest in the device!
