We are pleased to announce that 9th International Conference on Biology and Synchrotron Radiation will be held in the UK in August 2007. The main event (13th to 16th August, inclusive) will take place at the Manchester International Congress Centre. This will be followed for those with special interests by a visit to DIAMOND Light Source (on 17th August) at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire. The sessions at Diamond will be primarily oriented towards the instrumentation and technology.

It is an exciting time for Biological sciences and synchrotron radiation. Several new synchrotron sources would be coming on line including SOLEIL in France and DIAMOND in the UK. In the UK, in 2007, the Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS Daresbury) should still be producing important biological results, DIAMOND will be commissioned in January 2007 and the prototype of the new venture of the VUV Free-electron-laser based proto-type facility of 4GLS should be completed Daresbury. The world's first X-ray coherent source, LCLS is scheduled to produce first beam in 2008 offering new challenges to the biophysics and biological communities.
