Nowadays, “next-generation high-brilliant light sources”, such as X-ray free electron laser, ultrashort-pulse laser, and new synchrotron radiation light sources, have been advanced. By utilizing them, new scientific developments are expected among various academic and applied research fields including telecommunications, nano-technologies, material sciences, life sciences, environment, energy, earth sciences, and so on. Therefore, it is highly important for young researchers, who will bear next-generation synchrotron radiation science, to form new researcher networks between different research fields regardless each of those research fields, in order to develop each specialized field by exchanging technologies and methodologies between different fields, and furthermore, to create a new research fields due to a fusion of different fields.

This international workshop will thus aim to make a foundation for knowledge exchange and new collaborative research by sharing advanced researches, methods, problems, and near-future visions in each of research field via various sessions including leading scientific researches as well as instrumental/technical developments utilizing advanced synchrotron light sources or XFEL, material and measurement informatics. The workshop will provide an excellent opportunity to promote development and globalization of young researchers by tutorial talks, invited talks from overseas synchrotron facilities, and a poster session. All the sessions will be held in English.
