The NIH-funded ABBIX structural biology beamlines at the NSLS-II are
approaching completion, delivering two crystallography and one scattering
beamline for biological sciences.  The performance of these beamlines will
present opportunities previously unattainable at synchrotron light
sources, creating challenges for data collection and scientific discovery.

The beamlines will provide a photon-beam flux density at least five orders
of magnitude greater than that achievable at the NSLS, and orders of
magnitude greater than that achievable today at any synchrotron light
source.  Participation in the first science undertaken at these beamlines
represents a unique opportunity for scientists to help deliver on their

We are organizing a workshop at BNL, to occur on Jan. 28-29, 2015, to help 
define and develop further the priorities for the scientific commissioning 
of these beamlines and their entry into routine operation.  Interested 
participants will be able to present and discuss their vision for the 
early science case for each beamline, thereby helping to shape the 
international scene for structural biology.
