After nearly 40 years, the SRI will return to Hamburg where the first meeting was held in 1982. At that time DORIS was the only operating synchrotron source in Hamburg. The metropolitan area now hosts three unique research facilities: the European XFEL, PETRA III and FLASH at DESY. These three facilities complement each other and open up new research opportunities for scientists and industrial users of the international synchrotron radiation and free-electron laser community. Hamburg is once again ideally suited to be the venue of the next SRI conference.

Rotating between Europe, America and the Asian-Pacific region, SRI conferences are hosted by countries with the most advanced light source facilities. They are organised by the international synchrotron radiation and free-electron laser community. The conference 2021 in Germany is expected to attract more than 1,000 participants.

The SRI2021 conference will take place in the ‘new CCH’, the Congress Centre Hamburg, right in the centre of the city (close to the Dammtor train station), from 30 August to 3 September 2021.

Registration opens: February 2021
Early-bird deadline: May 2021
Registration deadline: June 2021

Further information will follow on this official SRI2021 conference webpage in summer 2020.

We are looking forward to welcome all participants of the the SRI2021 conference in Hamburg. However, in case that the situation caused by the corona pandemic does not improve until then, we would take any appropriate measures.
