Welcome to NOBUGS 2022!

New Opportunities for Better User Group Software


The 13th NOBUGS Conference will be held at Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland at September 19-22, 2022. The goal of the NOBUGS (New Opportunities for Better User Group Software) Conference Series is to foster collaboration and exchange between scientists and IT professionals working on software for X-ray, neutron and muon sources from around the world.

Program Themes

  • Data acquisition systems
  • Data reduction
  • User interfaces
  • Data catalogs/Electronic Notebooks
  • Data Streaming
  • Use of (commercial) Cloud Systems
  • Web Tools
  • Workflow Engines & Tools
  • Other Relevant Topics

As NOBUGS 2020 had to be cancelled due to the corona pandemic it will be four years since we  met. The program committee will strive to create a good mixture of contributions reporting about developments and plans for major  community packages and contributions about innovative approaches to the challenges faced by the community. 

Conference Organization

Due to the ongoing corona pandemic and other travel restrictions NOBUGS 2022 will be held as a hybrid conference with participants on site at PSI and online via Zoom. In order to accommodate our colleagues from afar this restricts the conference to the afternoon local time. Also, all day online meetings are very tiresome. 

For participants on site, we will strive to organise a morning program. One feature will be the traditional visit to PSI. But there is space for satellite meetings or such in the mornings. Please contact the organizers if space for such activities is required. 


  • Early June 2022, Registration and abstract submissions opens. 
  • Abstract submission deadline: August, 19, 2022
  • On site participant registration deadline: September, 9, 2022
  • Online participant registration deadline: September,  16, 2022

Organizing Committee

NOBUGS 2022 is organized by the NOBUGS International Advisory Committee. This conference is part of a series of conferences. For more information about NOBUGS and past conferences of the same kind see the NOBUGS site
