SSURF Annual Meeting 2019 
College Park, Maryland

November 12-13*, 2019

The Society for Science at User Research Facilities (SSURF) is a not-for-profit organization working to advance awareness of user science. Our mission is to provide a consolidated community for those engaged in, supporting, and/or interested in research at America’s national user facilities. SSURF's two primary thrusts are to (1) to support professional communities and research networks by sharing best practices and facilitating professional development, and (2) promote public awareness through education and outreach about the benefits and significance of user facility research. 

The SSURF 2019 Annual Meeting is an opportunity to discuss the most important challenges and opportunities facing our nation’s user facility network.  The meeting will open with a follow-up on last year’s productive discussions on ORCID.  Attendees will then have an opportunity to discuss the most requested topic from the 2018 Annual Meeting survey: administrative pain points, including UEC management and effectiveness, data management, and regulatory challenges.
The meeting will also include a discussion about current and future SSURF initiatives:  hiring an executive director, defining a strategic plan, and engaging in new and innovative outreach activities to raise awareness of the user facility model and educate stakeholders about the broad impact of science performed at user facilities. 
The SSURF Board of Directors looks forward to engaging membership at the meeting. 

*Following the meeting, on November 14, Congressional office visits will be facilitated for some participants.
