Between July 31st and August 2nd, 2019, the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS), part of the Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM) located at Campinas (SP), will host the event Synchrotron Techniques Under High Pressure (PRESSYNC). PRESSYNC is a satellite workshop to the 27th International Conference on High Pressure Science and Technology (AIRAPT27).
The AIRAPT27 conference, sponsored by AIRAPT (International Association for the Advancement of High-Pressure Science and Technology), is the largest and most important international scientific event in the field of high-pressure science and technology. The 27th conference in Rio de Janeiro will be the first one to be held in the southern hemisphere. The conference gathers a multidisciplinary international community whose focus is on fundamental and applied research at extreme pressure conditions, as well as on the associated technology and instrumentation.
Taking advantage of this opportunity, the PRESSYNC Satellite Workshop will bring together world leaders in high-pressure science to discuss the potential of synchrotron-based techniques under high pressure on the new fourth-generation synchrotron light sources, such as Sirius.
Sirius, the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, is planned to be one of the most advanced facilities of its kind in the world, opening new perspectives for research in a wide range of fields. Hence, PRESSYNC aims specially to motivate the community around the several possibilities that will be available at Sirius’ extreme conditions beamline, EMA.
