Several meetings and workshops in the past addressed the topic of quality assurance in XAFS spectroscopy. The latest of them was the Q2XAFS workshop in Tsukuba, Japan in December 2011. The upcoming Satellite Meeting is intended to give an overview about the current status and to continue the discussions about quality management systems in XAFS spectroscopy.
List of topics:
- Spectra evaluation
- Software developments
- Data storage / status of the HDR-initiative
- Archiving and presentation of EXAFS data
- Instrumental developments / Standardisation
- Special demands of industrial applications

Participants will also have the opportunity to visit the new EXAFS beamlines in the PETRA extension which are expected to be in the commissioning phase at the time of the workshop.
