FELS OF EUROPE Conferences

Science@FELs conference series

FELS OF EUROPE organise the Science@FELs conference every two years, having started in 2014. The conference highlights recent science achievements and new developments in the boosting field of free electron lasers. It covers applications in condensed matter research, biology, chemistry, matter under extreme conditions, atomic and molecular systems as well as theory. Dedicated introductory lectures for students and young researchers are offered and student grants are allocated to support their participation. Starting in 2016, Fels of Europe award the FEL Science and Applications prize.

The next Science@FELs confernence will be organised by DESY, Germany and is also planned to take place there as face-to-face-event.

PhotonDiag conference series

FELS OF EUROPE also organise the PhotonDiag - a workshop series on FEL Photon Diagnostics, Instrumentation, and Beamlines Design - every two years since 2015 with one predecessor in 2010 at DESY (Hamburg, Germany). The workshops focus on photon beam diagnostic techniques, time-related beam properties, FEL optics, photon beam transport, science instruments, detectors, and data handling. The workshops also provide a forum for training of facility staff and exchange with relevant industry.

The next PhotonDiag 2022 will be organised by HZB and is planned to take place at HZB, Germany, as a face-to-face meeting.
