As users of synchrotron radiation know full well, there is a learning curve between the states of being interested in the subject and being qualified to conduct experiments. Most new users learn on the job as students or as collaborators with knowledgeable colleagues, but there is an increasingly important role for formal training in the framework of a short course or a summer school. In this spirit, the first-ever Berkeley-Stanford Summer School in Synchrotron Radiation was held Sunday, July 8, through Saturday, July14, at the Clark Kerr Campus of the University of California, Berkeley (UCB). The course was coordinated by Anders Nilsson (SSRL/Stanford/Uppsala University) and David Attwood (Berkeley Lab/UCB).
