What is the SLAC User's Organization (SLUO)?

SLUO is the organization of scientists and engineers involved in particle physics, particle astrophysics or nuclear physics research at SLAC.

If you are interested in the User Organizations for LCLS, SSRL, or FACET/Test Facilities, please visit the corresponding site below:

SLUO exists:

  • for communication between the users of SLAC facilities and the Laboratory on matters of operating policy and facilities utilization.
  • to facilitate the involvement of its members in projects at SLAC.
  • to provide information to its members on matters affecting their relationship to the laboratory.
  • to promote the utilization of existing SLAC facilitates and the approval of new ones.

SLUO has an Executive Committee of twelve users and SLAC collaborators. Members are nominated by Institutional Representatives at the Annual Meeting, and voted on by the full SLUO membership. The Minutes of the Executive Committee are available on the Web. More details regarding the Organization are available in the charter. The current Chair of the Executive Committee is Nicola Omodei. Please take a minute to read the Welcome Letter from the Chair.
