European X-ray Spectrometry Conference

24-28 June 2024, Athens, Greece

European X-Ray Spectrometry Conference - EXRS

EXRS is a biennial conference series inaugurated in 1984 in Goteborg. Ever since it has become a traditional meeting for scientists from around the world working in X-Ray Spectrometry or using one of its numerous applications: X-ray fluorescence, Particle Induced X-ray Emission, Electron Probe Microanalysis, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy, micro–Computed Tomography, among others, and in their interdisciplinary applications. It represents an exciting discussion forum for basic research and applications of X-Ray spectrometry in a vast array of fields, such as Materials Science, Chemistry, Radiation Physics, Medicine, Biology, Environment, Cultural Heritage, Technology, and Industry. EXRS offers the opportunity to learn more about the latest developments in theoretical, experimental, and applied X-Ray spectrometry, to discuss with people from all over the world, to share your work and to learn from others.

The scientific program consists of keynote lectures delivered by distinguished scientists, oral presentations and poster contributions by the participants and an Industrial Exhibition, including technical presentations given by the sponsors.

The most recent EXRS conferences were held in Bruges, Belgium 2022, Ljubljana, Slovenia 2018 Gothenburg, Sweden 2016 and Bologna, Italy 2014.

Welcome to EXRS 2024 in Athens, Greece!

The 2024 edition of EXRS conference will take place in Athens, Greece on 24-28 of June hosted by the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics of the National Centre for Scientific Research, “Demokritos”. Athens is a coastal city in the Mediterranean and is both the capital and largest city of Greece. It is one of the world’s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years and its earliest human presence beginning somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennia BC. The heritage of the Classical Era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments, and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains Roman, Byzantine and a smaller number of Ottoman monuments, while its historical urban core features elements of continuity through its millennia of history. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery.

The scientific program of the conference will take place at the Zappeion Megaron, which is situated in the heart of Athens, next to the National Gardens, and in the vicinity of the old city (Plaka) and of many hotels. A variety of social activities will allow the visitors to explore the city, as well as the rest of the country. Scientists, engineers, and exhibitors are cordially invited to join the conference, present their work, and learn about new developments in the field.
