It is our pleasure to announce the new virtual format for the PhotonDiag 2020 conference to take place from the 26 to 28 October 2020 at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland.  Like many other conferences this year, the PhotonDiag 2020 has switched to a format that will mix pre-recorded talks and posters with workshop sessions that are attended virtually by live participants.  To that end, the registration and abstract submission process for the conference has not changed, though the presentation format will be different.

The conference’s new format means that the registration fee has been waived.  Furthermore, the conference deadline has been pushed back until 31 August.  We look forward to your participation!
