11th International Conference on Inelastic X-ray Scattering (IXS2019)


The 11th International Conference on Inelastic X-ray Scattering, IXS2019 will be held in Stony Brook, New York on June 23-28, 2019. It continues a series of meetings held now every two years, most recently hosted by NSRRC in Taiwan (2015) and DESY in Germany (2017).

This conference will bring together scientists from all over the world interested in the use and development of inelastic x-ray scattering to address a broad range of materials science problems. IXS2019 is your opportunity to share new scientific discoveries and latest developments in IXS instrumentation, experimental approaches and theories, and to discuss future directions in the field.

If you have not yet done so, we hope that you will be able to complete and submit our 2019 IXS Conference feedback survey to us as soon as possible. Your input and feedback is valued and will help us in organizing successful future conferences.
