The 11th International School and Symposium on Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science (ISSRNS’2012) will be organized by Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society (PTPS) in cooperation with the Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, Kraków, Poland from 20th to 25th of May 2012 in Kraków (Poland).
ISSRNS is a traditional forum for discussing fundamental issues of application of the synchrotron radiation and related methods in natural sciences. The aim of this interdisciplinary meeting is to bring together scientists working with synchrotron radiation. The Symposium will focus on novel applications of synchrotron radiation in physics, chemistry, material science, biology and medicine.
The topics of the meeting include
•synchrotron radiation in nanoscience
•x-ray absorption, fluorescence and photoelectron spectroscopies
•x-ray magnetic dichroism
•x-ray diffraction: methods and applications
•macromolecular crystallography
•synchrotron radiation in life sciences
•applications of free electron lasers
•synchrotron and alternative radiation sources - instrumentation

The meeting will be held in a comfortable FERO EXPRESS HOTEL which is a new fully-equipped three-star object. It is situated in the natural surroundings of the Royal City of Kraków. The hotel’s facilities include seven conference rooms, a drink bar, a small and big restaurant with a green garden with alleys and benches. A free, monitored car park is also available for the guests. The FERO EXPRESS Hotel is situated near The Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec, by the Vistula River, next to a leisure center with a sports hall, an indoor swimming pool, fitness facilities and a state-of-the-art kayak and raft course.
The hotel is located 5 km from the Balice airport, next to the Kraków ringroad exit (A4 Tyniec junction) and only a dozen minutes by car or bus away from the center of the City. See the location on the map: http://www.fero.krakow.pl/mapka.html

We are hoping to host you in Poland in 2012
