XAFS17 site decided

August 1, 2012

On Friday, July 27 in Beijing, two proposals for the XAFS 17 conference (Korea and Poland) were briefly presented. After discussion, the IXAS Executive Committee held a closed-ballot vote to determine the conference venue.

The Executive Committee voting results clearly decided Krakow, Poland, to host XAFS 17. Because of recurring conflicts with the Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation (SRI) conference, there is some discussion about whether to hold this conference in 2017 rather than 2018, but this is not yet decided.
