Scientific Opportunities for the Spanish Community at XFELs
The IMDEA-UAM-CSIC initiative, within the Campus of Excellence UAM-CSIC, is inviting you to the workshop on X-ray Free Electron Lasers (XFELs) “Scientific Opportunities for the Spanish Community at XFELs” that will be held entirely virtual on June 10-11, 2021.
The workshop is a follow-up event of the 1st Meeting of the European XFEL (EuXFEL) Spanish user community, held at the EuXFEL Users’ Meeting in January 2020 in Hamburg (Germany), and intends to bring closer the XFEL science and its applications to the potential Spanish users’ community.
The first day of the workshop will be entirely dedicated to presentations focused on the research infrastructures available at the EuXFEL and accessible to Spanish research groups, granted by the participation of Spain as a member state in this international consortium. The second day will be fully dedicated to XFEL science and diverse opportunities offered by these unique lightsources. An ample selection of talks, given by the world experts in their respective fields, will illustrate to the Spanish community the potential of XFELs across different scientific disciplines, from Physics and Chemistry to Biology.
We believe this workshop will also help us to further increase the outreach of XFEL science in Spain, in particular in the context of Spanish participation in the EuXFEL consortium and consolidate the users’ community.
