The aim of the EPSRC funded Collaborative Network for X-ray Spectroscopy (CONEXS) is to establish a strong UK community for X-ray spectroscopy whose primary focus is to nurture a strong synergy between experiment and theory.
Advances in experimental methodology aligned with technological developments, such as 3rd generation light sources, X-ray Free Electron Lasers (X-FELs) and High Harmonic Generation (HHG), has led to a paradigm shift in the capability of X-ray spectroscopy, including absorption, emission, inelastic scattering and photoelectron, to deliver highly detailed information about the geometric, electronic, spin structure and dynamics on an extremely broad range of samples in a wide array of different environments. However, the complex nature and high information content of this class of techniques means that detailed theoretical studies are often essential to provide a firm link between the spectroscopic observables and the underlying structure and dynamics. This EPSRC funded network aims to bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working in the area X-ray spectroscopy to achieve new levels of understanding, especially for the interpretation of experimental data. From the perspective of the computational community, direct engagement with experimentalists can highlight theoretical challenges and act as a catalyst for the development of new methods. For the experimental community, direct engagement with theoreticians will provide expertise in the new theoretical developments providing new opportunities for data analysis.

CONEXS Summer School: Analysing X-Ray Spectroscopy
10-12 September 2019, Newcastle University
The Collaborative Network for X-ray Spectroscopy (CONEXS) aims to establish stronger links between experiment and theory in X-ray spectroscopy.
This CONEXS Summer School will focus on analysis techniques for the near-edge structure of X-ray absorption spectra, covering FDMNES and CP2K.It will include introductory lectures starting from graduate level and practical workshops.
Admission to the summer school is free of charge with accommodation provided if required.
Confirmed speakers include:
Dr Axel Erbing - Stockholm University
Dr Augustin Bussy - University of Zurich
Dr Fernanda Nunes - University of Zurich
Dr Yves Joly - French National Centre for Scientific Research
