10th Biennial Conference on High Resolution X-Ray Diffraction and Imaging, 20th-23rd September 2010, University of Warwick (UK)

XTOP 2010 Logo

XTOP 2010, the 10th Biennial Conference on High Resolution X-Ray Diffraction and Imaging, took place from Monday September 20th to Thursday September 23rd 2010 at the University of Warwick, UK. The schedule for the conference can be found here. XTOP brings together scientists from the fields of X-ray diffractometry, coherent and conventional X-ray diffraction imaging and topography, as well as X-ray phase contrast imaging (radiography and micro-tomography). XTOP is thus one of the central scientific platforms concerning methods and instrumentation in synchrotron-based high-resolution X-ray diffraction methods, phase contrast imaging, and microtomography.

Submission of manuscripts for the XTOP 2010 conference proceedings has now opened. The deadline for submission is the 15th November 2010. More details and guidelines for authors can be found here.

For any enquiries, please contact us at XTOP2010 at warwick dot ac dot uk.
