About the Event

The Canadian Light Source at the University of Saskatchewan, in partnership with the CHESS synchrotron in the United States and the Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory in Brazil, is organizing this international conference for the first time, subsequently intended to take place every 2 years, alternating between the three major light sources.

The goal of this conference is to increase awareness about the value of light sources for agricultural research, and to engage with potential customers to increase the use of advanced imaging synchrotron tools, by showcasing leading research in the field.

The Canadian Light Source (CLS) at the University of Saskatchewan is the first synchrotron to define agricultural science as one of its strategic priorities, due to the combination of its unique infrastructure capabilities, in-house expertise, and close proximity to outstanding agricultural science infrastructure.
