Joint Meeting of PSRS Members and SOLARIS Centre Users



Czerwone Maki 98, 30-392 Cracow

The conference Joint Meeting of PSRS Members and SOLARIS Centre Users will enable the exchange of knowledge and experience in scientific research using synchrotron radiation and will undoubtedly help ensure the highest world level of scientific research conducted at the synchrotron in Krakow. The meeting is a continuation of the conference "Joint Meeting of Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society and SOLARIS Centre Users", which, taking place every two years in the form of a face-to-face meeting, integrates the community of scientists conducting research using synchrotron radiation and CryoEM. 

The meeting will be an excellent forum for popularizing world science and disseminating knowledge about synchrotron radiation and cryogenic electron microscopy as well as research opportunities related to its use. The topics of the conference will cover virtually all areas of science, from physics to biology, chemistry, geology, and environmental engineering. The meeting will also be an opportunity to discuss development of scientific infrastructure at SOLARIS Centre and new ideas for scientific projects that can be implemented on the operating beamlines and microscopes.

As part of the meeting, it will be possible to present the results of research obtained with the use of synchrotron radiation and cryogenic electron microscopy as well as the opportunity to listen to lectures by invited users, who will share the results of their research. The program includes several review lectures summarizing the current state of scientific and technological achievements and presenting development trends in the field of research using the SOLARIS synchrotron and synchrotron radiation and cryogenic electron microscopy. The didactic aspect of the conference is particularly important for young scientists, graduate students, or doctoral students, who constitute the direct scientific and research base of the future scientific groups of SOLARIS users. Equally important is the opportunity to exchange experiences between more advanced users of synchrotron radiation and cryogenic electron microscopy as well as to share these experiences with a group of young scientists.

The conference will consist of invited lectures, oral communications and poster sessions.
