assisted with the program, arranged many logistical details, and made sure that the
conference ran smoothly. These committees also owed a great deal to the "nuts and bolts"
work done by staff at the Department of Physics at UC Davis, the ALS, and the
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. A program for accompanying persons was
also assembled by Betsy Smith. The ICESS8 sponsors were UC Davis; the ALS; the
Seaborg Institute at Livermore, the Canadian Light Source/Centre Canadien de
Rayonnement Synchrotron; the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory; and the
International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique, and Applications (IUVSTA).
In addition to providing the conference meeting facilities, the Clark Kerr Campus site
offered accommodations and excellent meals in a quiet, campus-like setting. Conference
activities began on Monday evening with a welcoming reception for participants and
accompanying persons in the central courtyard. The next morning, following welcomes
from Winston Ko (Chair, Department of Physics, UC Davis), Pier Oddone (Deputy
Director, Berkeley Lab), Neville Smith (ALS Division Deputy for Science), and
conference chairs Fadley and Terminello, the work of the conference began in earnest.
The extensive scientific program meant that conference attendees did indeed put in full
days. Each morning featured two plenary lectures, followed by a break and two parallel
sessions for oral presentations. After lunch in the Clark Kerr cafeteria, attendees viewed
poster presentations and visited vendor booths. The day ended with a second period of
parallel oral sessions. Despite the long days, there was time for relaxation. On Tuesday
evening there was a conference reception, and on Wednesday after dinner there was a
vendor reception. Thursday evening was reserved for the conference banquet.
On Tuesday morning, Peter Johnson (Brookhaven National Laboratory) presented the
first plenary lecture "High-resolution photoemission studies of self-energy effects in
strongly correlated materials." Based on angle-resolved photoemission experiments by
his group at the National Synchrotron Light Source, Johnson reviewed the use of both
energy-distribution and momentum-distribution curves to extract contributions to the self
energy and, in particular, to look for non-Fermi-liquid behavior in high-temperature
