The Synchrotron Environmental Science IV (SESIV) meeting will be held at the Westin San Francisco Market Street Hotel, California, USA. Continuing the tradition established by previous SES conferences, SES IV will bring together a diverse community of environmental and synchrotron scientists. 

Presentations from environmental science leaders will explore emerging frontiers in environmental science and the role synchrotron science can play in solving our global environmental problems.  Specific topics will include challenges in environmental remediation, marine science, atmospheric science, and CO2 sequestration.

The conference will also highlight new synchrotron methods and facility developments in North American and provide approximately one day of hands-on sessions and introductory-level talks for new and prospective users. Environmental science researchers new to synchrotron radiation are strongly encouraged to attend.
