Preparing for your Experiment
You will receive an email from the ESRF user office several months before your experiment. This will confirm the dates of your experiment and confirm your local contact. To ensure that the beamline is setup quickly and smoothly for your experiments, it would be appreciated if you could liaise with the local contact prior to your arrival.
XMaS will support up to 3 (and in extremis 4) users per experiment. This is not a restriction on the number of experimentalists, but you should make your own budgetary arrangements for those in excess of 3. The ESRF guesthouse still appears adequate to accommodate all our users, though CRG users will always have a lower priority than the ESRF's own users. Do remember to complete the web-based "A form" requested of you when you receive the ESRF invitation. All attendees must be listed, since this informs the safety group of the attendees and is used to organise all site passes, meal cards and accommodation. To ensure your reservation in the ESRF guesthouse it is recommended that you fill in the A-form as soon as possible.
