During the past fifty years synchrotron radiation, has become an integral part of the UK’s academic and industrial science base; and there are now over 70 synchrotron sources and FELs worldwide which facilitate an expanding range of pure and applied science.
SR50UK will celebrate the achievements of these facilities and explore the future of the light sources (Synchrotrons and FELs) and their applications in the coming decades. It coincides with 70th anniversary of the first publication of the International Union of Crystallography which decided to establish the dedicated Journal of Synchrotron Radiation at its Congress and General Assembly in 1993.
The programme will include talks from 14 Plenary speakers, including Diamond's Life Sciences Director, Dave Stuart, and 51 invited talks across the three days. Approximately half of the invited talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Final deadline for abstract submissisons is 31st December 2017.
