It took place the day before the SSRL/LCLS Users' Meeting and included speakers discussing Herman's contributions including development of insertion devices and free electron lasers as well as his activities in human rights and the development of synchrotron sources around the world. The program included the following speakers: Ewan Paterson, Seb Doniach, Claudio Pellegrini, Jo Stohr, Andy Sessler, Efim Gluskin, Soichi Wakatsuki, John Schmerge and Artie Bienenstock.
