Registration as voter and/or recipient of quarterly email newsletters


All users of synchrotron radiation (including FELs) in Germany should be registered with the KFS so that they can elect the KFS every three years. Furthermore, the number of active users is an important indicator of the research policy significance of the research field. The KFS sends out an email newsletter every three months with information on calls for proposals, events, etc. You can also subscribe to this newsletter if you are not eligible to vote.

Eligible for election are all scientists from institutions in Germany who are actively involved in research with synchrotron radiation sources and who have a university or college degree. Also eligible to vote are German scientists who work abroad at international institutions with German participation and meet the above-mentioned requirements. In case of doubt, the committee will decide.

If you would like to subscribe, please send us an email in this form:
