60 years of Synchrotron Radiation in Japan (JPSR60)


We will celebrate 60 years of Synchrotron Radiation in Japan this year. Excellent speakers, who have a deep friendship with Japan, will give their wonderful invited talks. Our history will be reviewed by established Japanese scientists. Recent and emerging topics will be shared by our front runners.
