Dear Colleagues,

We are very enthusiastic for you to join us at the ISSRNS 2022 in Krakow.

We are very pleased that the conference is receiving a lot of interest from participants who are registering every day. If you haven’t registered yet, please do register as soon as possible to allow us to organize an exciting and high-level scientific program!

We are relying on you to make ISSRNS 2022 a successful event!

We would like to inform you, that we are continuously monitoring the geopolitical situation in our part of Europe. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and its scientists! Currently, the situation in Poland is very stable. Numerous scientific conferences have been planned and are being conducted. Poland continues to be a safe place for visitors.

We look forward to welcoming you to Krakow in 2022!

ISSRNS 2022 General Information

Polish Synchrotron Radiation Society - PSRS ( has been organizing this International School and Symposium on Synchrotron Radiation since 1991. The aim of our interdisciplinary meeting is to bring together scientists and students working with synchrotron radiation. ISSRNS is a traditional forum for discussing fundamental issues of application of the synchrotron radiation and related methods in natural sciences. The goal of this interdisciplinary Symposium is to bring together users (scientists and graduate students) of synchrotron radiation. The meeting will focus on novel applications of synchrotron radiation in physics, chemistry, material and life sciences.

The 15th International School and Symposium on Synchrotron Radiation in Natural Science (ISSRNS’2022) will be held in Przegorzały (near Krakow), Poland, 22-25 August 2022.

The programme of the Symposium will comprise invited lectures (40 minutes), oral presentations (20 minutes), short contributions (10 min), and poster presentations. The short contributions are only aimed at the students allowing them to present their research results. The abstracts of all presentations presented on ISSRNS will be published in a Book of Abstracts, and the proceedings in a reputable international journal. The official language of the meeting is English.
