The 9th International School and Symposium on Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science (ISSRNS'2008) will be held in the Ameliówka Hotel (M¹chocice Kapitulne near Kielce) on June 15-20, 2008.

ISSRNS is a series of meetings, organised every two years, devoted to recent advances and new techniques employing synchrotron radiation in physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and medicine. The 9th meeting will be organised by the Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society with cooperation with Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences (Warsaw, Poland).

Specialists from synchrotron centres will be invited to deliver lectures on hot topics related to wide applications of these new sources of electromagnetic radiation in various domains. Poster sessions will be organised to present recent achievements and results. The collected abstracts will be published in a volume of Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science, and the proceedings in a reputable international journal.

The meeting language is English.

The topics of the meeting include:

synchrotron and alternative radiation sources - instrumentation,

synchrotron radiation in life sciences,

macromolecular crystallography,

x-ray absorption, fluorescence and photoelectron spectroscopies,

magnetic dichroism,

x-ray diffraction,

nanocrystals and nanostructures,

applications of free electron lasers.
