A program with presentations and discussions on topics such as:


  • Bigger/better/faster detectors?
  • Ideal mirrors & other optics?
  • More in situ & in operando sample environments?
  • Can the sample handle it?


  • More data, more problems: what can we learn from FELs?
  • How to streamline data analysis?
  • What about automation, AI & machine learning?


  • Which new experiments are now possible/on the horizon?
  • Which fields, which techniques or which effects will come to the fore?


  • What’s the next step?
  • Is there a limit?
  • Smaller beams, not always better?
