The conference „SOLARIS update meeting” 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. This year, for the first time, SOLARIS inaugurates the form of meetings in the online system - „SOLARIS update meeting” - which will supplement the current knowledge about synchrotron and Cryo-EM technologies in the years between the "live" conference.

The meeting will be an excellent forum for popularizing world science and disseminating knowledge about synchrotron radiation and 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 conference will be also an opportunity to discuss new beamlines and ideas related to scientific projects that can already be implemented on the currently launched SOLARIS synchrotron beamlines.

As part of the meeting, it will be possible to present the results of research obtained with the use of synchrotron radiation and 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. 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 to share these experiences with a group of young scientists.


The special guest of the meeting will be Tomasz Rożek, who will deliver his own lecture about Artificial Intelligence (AI) in science. 


We look forward to seeing you via the Zoom platform!

Chair of the conference,

Jakub Szlachetko
