The presentations are organized in sessions focused on the different scientific fields where a combination of optical spectroscopies and X-ray methods are currently employed at synchrotron beamlines, namely:

- Biological / Pharmaceutical Research
- Catalysis
- Materials / Nanomaterials

The sessions will be focused on both on instrumentation and scientific applications. By holding single sessions the participants will be able to attend all sessions and hence inter-disciplinary discussions will be promoted. As the field is still new, the focus on instrumentation and inter-disciplinarity is expected to aid the quick adoption of instrumentation advances by the diverse scientific communities.

A poster presentation will be organized, with a dedicated discussion session.
