About the workshops:

X-ray Powder Diffraction at DESY
In order to identify current and future scientific and industrial demands in X-ray powder diffraction applications a virtual workshop will be held on June 22th – 25th 2020. This workshop will gather the input from the user community on how to evolve and enhance the methods and techniques provided within the existing PETRA III diffraction stations as well as beyond. The workshop is meant to serve as a melting pot for new ideas from science and industry. The aim is to identify key aspects and provide DESY with a community backed concept for current and future developments (e.g. development of new beamlines at PETRA III / PETRA IV). 

Biomedical Imaging at PETRA III and PETRA IV
The scope of the workshop is to bring together current and future users of Biomedical Imaging facilities to exchange ideas and trends as well as identify beamline parameters which could help enable the envisaged imaging projects at PETRA III and PETRA IV. This will also help in gathering information on the evolution and enhancement of methods and techniques provided at the existing PETRA III imaging stations as well as for envisaged stations at PETRA III and PETRA IV. The workshop is expected to cover a broad range of applications from molecular crystallography to possible in vivo studies on animals.
