Karlsruhe Schloss



XAFS16 is dedicated to information exchange and discussion on current research using X-ray Absorption Fine Structure spectroscopy and related methods. The conference  will be a forum for the presentation of new scientific results and underlying theoretical approaches and technological developments in XAFS via plenary lectures, invited and contributed talks, and posters – augmented by a commercial exhibition.

XAFS16 also offers an excellent opportunity to establish or renew contacts with colleagues in the field.




XAFS16 is organized by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in close collaboration with Helmholtz-Institutes DESY (Hamburg) and HZB (Berlin) which are operating the German synchrotron radiation user facilities. The conference and technical exhibition will be held on the KIT Campus South (the former Technical University of Karlsruhe), which is located close to the city center.
The main lecture hall (Audimax) of the University Campus is the central meeting place for the XAFS16.

The Technical exhibition will be fully integrated into the conference schedule. Coffee breaks will be taken in the exhibition area and the poster session will be held close by.
