XVII International Synchrotron Radiation Conference 'SR-2008'

15-20 June, 2008, Novosibirsk, Russia

First Announcement

The XVII International Synchrotron Radiation Conference will be held fromJune 15till June 20, 2008 at Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Novosibirsk, Russia. The Conference is the next in a series of Russian and International biennialconferences on synchrotron radiation utilization held in Novosibirsk since 1975.

Scientific Program

Traditionally,the scientific program of the Conference covers the following themes:

  • Status reviews and scientific programs of various SR centers;
  • FEL and THz radiation sources and applications;
  • Insertion devices (wigglers, undulators, magnets);
  • SR for nanomaterials study;
  • Matter research methods using SR beams: X-ray diffraction, EXAFS, SRXFA, etc.
  • SR application in physics, chemistry, ecology, medicine, geology, etc;
  • SR experimental technique and SR instrumentation;
  • X-ray optics and X-ray detectors;
  • SR application in X-ray lithography and micromechanics.

The Conference will include invited presentations and contributed papers,the Conference Program consisting of oral and poster presentations. Oral reports will be presented in the morning and afternoon sessions. The Conference languages are Russian and English, synchronous translation provided at the plenary sessions.

ISTC session

It is planned to organize an ISTC (International Science and TechnologyCenter) session which will cover the Center's activity in Russia in the field of Synchrotron Radiation. A number of projects involving leading Russian institutions and the ISTC will be presented at this session.

For participants’convenience, the Organizing Committee is planning to publish the “Digest reports” book before the Conference. You can prepare your abstract in this format for this book of abstracts.

These detailed abstracts can contain numeric data results, tables, figures, references [1], curves, etc. for clear understanding of your presentation.

The size of abstract isone standard A4 page with a 3 cm margin on the left and below and a 2 cm margin on the right and from above (like in this document).

Please use the Times New Roman font with 1 line spacing. Print the title ina 14 pt font, centered, bold and capitals. Everything else shall be in a12 pt font. The name of the corresponding author shall be underlined.

Please indicate the corresponding author name, postal address and E-mail addressat the bottom of the page.

Table 1.An example of table.

Column 1 / Column 2
Row 2 / Data 1 / Data 2
/ Figure 1. Please insert the figures in the abstract as a part of a paragraph, not like a “floating” frame.
Please note that the “Digest reports” book will be printed black-and-white, thus we do not recommended using color figures. If you are going to insert a half-tone gray picture, please make this picture more contrast.

Please send your abstract in Microsoft DOC or RTF (preferable), Adobe PDF or Tex format to the Organizing Committee by e-mail ()before April1, 2008, or attach it to the corresponding field at on-line registration ( Your abstract will be published without editing as a "camera-ready" publication.
