Virtual DXC 2020

Attendees to the World's largest X-ray conference had access to sessions on the latest advancements in XRD and XRF. Workshops were run by experts who provided training and education on many practical applications of X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction techniques for the study of materials. As an added benefit, these experts were available to answer questions and offer suggestions.

The registration fee includes access to Volume 64 online proceedings of Advances in X-ray Analysis, available Spring 2021.

The DXC event app included:

  • Pre-recorded workshops
  • Pre-recorded oral session presentations
  • E-posters
  • a virtual exhibit hall
  • job and resume postings
  • attendee message board
  • many networking opportunities

All conference content was available on-demand through 31 August!
