Conference format

Hybrid fashion combining “real” and “digital/virtual” formats

As we recognize that travel conditions in 2021 spring are uncertain, XOPT2021 will be organized in a hybrid fashion, combining “real” and “digital/virtual” formats.
For the “real” format, we plan to convene a in-person meeting at Osaka University.
For the “digital/virtual” format, the presentations and discussions at the in-person meetings will be connected via the on-line conferencing and video archive systems for participants unable to attend the meetings in-person.

We strive to significantly promote sharing the latest status of X-ray technology and discussion on the plans for the future, and so we are pleased that the meeting will still run this year with the revised format.
We are looking forward to seeing you at least on screen in April 2021.
More information will be continually updated in this website. But please SAVE THE DATE already.
