40th International Conference on Vacuum Ultraviolet and X-ray Physics (VUVX19)


till 2019/07/05

Registration closing date: registration opens in February 2019

Location: Westin St. Francis, San Francisco (USA)


VUVX is a major international conference series that covers important aspects of fundamental and applied research in photon sciences. VUVX19 will be jointly organized by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

We are expecting over 300 scientists from around the world whose work employs electromagnetic radiation in the spectral range from vacuum ultraviolet to hard X-ray radiation from synchrotron, laser, and plasma based sources. Presentations will cover recent progress ininstrumentation, methods development, and novel applications in physics, material science, chemistry, biology, and technology.

The scientific program of VUVX19 will consist of plenary sessions, parallel oral sessions with invited and contributed presentations, as well as poster sessions. Presenters will be invited or selected based on their abstract submissions by the VUVX International Science Committee and the local organizing committee.

A very important part of the conference will be two days of vendor and industry exhibitions providing participants with the opportunity to catch up on latest developments in commercially available instrumentation and services. The conference dinner on Wednesday, July 3rd and excursions to SLAC and LBNL on the last day of the conference will provide an additional important opportunity for participants for informal discussions and exchanges.
