The advent of x-ray free-electron lasers, such as the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) at Stanford, will move science into completely uncharted territory. The success of proposed experiments depends crucially on the support by theory. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together experimentalists and theorists in order to develop a road map for AMO theory related to LCLS and other x-ray free-electron lasers in the world.

As part of ITAMP's ongoing outreach to the physics community, presentations are webcast live at the time of the workshop. These presentations are also available online and can be viewed with a free RealPlayer from Go to the section Online Talks, Schedule and Abstracts to view the talks, see the schedule, or to download a .pdf document of the abstracts.
