Next scheduled tutorial: 19 September in the frame of Science@Fels 2022

The Science@FELs 2020 conference, the first online Science@FELs, was accompanied by a small number of focus tutorials led by eminent FEL scientists and specifically addressing younger members of the FEL community. The tutorials introduced hot topics in the field of FEL science with larger depth than usually possible in conference talks. Based on the very positive reception of these tutorials, Fels of Europe has started a regular online tutorial series inviting distinguished scholars in the field.

We try to regularly hold it on the first Monday of every other month.

The tutorials will usually be recorded.

Registered participants can access the recordings on this page (left hand navigation) within 4-5 days after the event, publication will be announced via email to all registered participants.
