What is the BSR Conference Series?
The International Biology and Synchrotron Radiation (BSR) meetings are held every three years with the aim of presenting and discussing state of the art applications in relevant research fields. They have a long-standing record since the first meeting in Frascati, Italy in 1986. Subsequent meetings were held at sites at or near the most advanced light source facilities around the world, with the last BSR meeting taking place in Shanghai, China in 2019.
BSR is a unique forum to discuss the novel possibilities of synchrotrons and X-ray lasers and to promote their applications to challenging biological problems.
MAX IV, the pioneer in multi-bend achromat synchrotron technology, would like to invite the synchrotron and free electron laser (FEL) Life Science community to Lund to discuss the latest and hottest developments in the field at the 14th BSR. By 2022, several other synchrotron facilities will also have upgraded their sources or have defined upgrade plans and we feel it would be opportune to discuss and high-light the latest developments and the possibilities for biological experiments at the next generation of synchrotrons and FELs.
The 14th BSR will take place from the 28th of June to the 1st of July 2022. The venue is Stora Salen in the main building of the Academic Society, a historic building from 1848 in the centre of Lund, Sweden.
