The first XAFS conference was held in 1981. The conference focuses on recent advances in synchrotron radiation science and technology in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science, biology, environmental science and medicine.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Local and International Organising Committees have made the decision to postpone the in-person XAFS2021 conference to July 2022.
A virtual event is now scheduled for 11-13 July 2021, to prelude the in-person July 2022 conference. The aim of this virtual conference is to provide a platform for the international XAFS community to remain connected leading into 2022.
