We warmly welcome you to the

Synchrotron Light Finland 2022

13th FSRUO annual meeting




FSRUO annual meeting is an occasion to learn about current and future facility capabilities and the latest user research. The meeting is open for everyone interested in utilizing international large-scale light source facilities in their research.


Keynote speakers:

  • Dr. Sareh Götelid (Swerim AB, Sweden)

  • Prof. Robert Feidenhans'l (EuXFEL, Germany)

  • Dr. Kristina Kvashnina (ESRF, France)

  • Dr. Calle Preger (MAX IV and Lund University, Sweden)

  • Dr. Marc Simon (University of Sorbonne, France)

  • Prof. Sebastian Westenhoff (University of Gothenburg and Uppsala University, Sweden)

Presentations from Finnish research groups

We also welcome contributed talks (20 minutes) and encourage especially early-stage researchers to submit contributions. You can indicate your interest to give a talk by giving the title of your talk in the registration form. Short abstracts will be asked only from those who will be selected to give a talk. There will not be poster presentations this year. Registration link will stay open until the annual meeting, but if you want to request a talk, please register by 1.11.2022.
