Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) Science Workshop Agenda

The workshop goals were to foster discussion on new science which is enabled by an ERL machine. Towards this end, most of the presentations below were limited to 10 minutes, with 5 minutes of discussion time before the next talk. All talks took place in Schwartz Auditorium in Rockefeller Hall.
