The International Research Center “Coherent X-ray optics for Megascience facilities” Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University plans to hold the International Baltic School 2021: Advanced Science and Technologies with synchrotron radiation.  The school will be held in Kaliningrad, a city located on the Baltic coast in Russia, from September 27 to October 1st, 2021.

The main goal of this school is preparing and motivating the new generation of users that will benefit from the emergent Megascience facilities and their advanced beamlines. Young scientists – participants of the school – will be shown cutting-edge research demonstrating the power of synchrotron technologies in materials science, concerning materials characterization and fabrication, with a focus on functional, biological, optical, and interfacial materials.

The format of the event will be mixed (online and offline). Video conferencing will be organized for online participants and lecturers using the Zoom platform.
