gThe beat goes onch. ShanghaiTech University and Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility are proudly carrying on the 2017 APXPS workshop after three successful workshops at SOLEIL/France in 2014, Berkeley Lab/US in 2015, and Diamond/UK in 2016. This workshop has become a key event for researchers and scientists working in this area to exchange ideas and strengthen collaborations. Following the tradition, AP-XPS 2017 will be a three-day event featuring keynote/invited speakers, delegate presentations, a poster session, a discussion session, and supplier exhibition.

This yearfs workshop will take place in Shanghai, a metropolis abounding in energy and excitement and no shortage of interesting things to do. This yearfs workshop also featuring a special evening social event and a tour of Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility.
