The SOLARIS Centre organizes an annual conference enabling exchange of knowledge and experience in scientific research using synchrotron radiation and cryo-microscopy. This year's SOLARIS Update Meeting will take place online on 21 and 22 June. Registration is now open.
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 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, brings together the community of scientists conducting research using synchrotron radiation. This year, for the first time, the meeting will take place online.
The meeting will be an excellent forum for international science communication 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 also provide an opportunity to discuss new beamlines and ideas related to scientific projects that can already be implemented on the currently launched SOLARIS synchrotron beamlines.
The programme 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 Cryo-microscopy. The educational aspect of the conference is particularly important for young scientists, graduate students, or doctoral students, who are among the most likely to become future 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.
