Since receiving its first light the Austrian SAXS beamline has been always in the forefront of development in terms of sample perturbation for time-resolved measurements as well as technically for classical transmission SAXS and GISAXS.

Besides the state-of-the-art instrumentation and method development in SAXS this symposium should cover specifically the current trends in microfluidics, in operando as well as fast pump probe experiments with applications in energy materials, nanomaterials, (bio-)polymers and biology.

The scope of the symposium is to provide a ground for discussion for addressing the perspectives of the specific trends, specially in the fields of Micro / nanofluidics and confined systems, in-operando and pump probe experiments, GISAXS and BioSAXS.
