FP initiative

International initiative on x-ray fundamental parameters

1st international virtual workshop in 2020

final call for contributions and agenda

The next meeting of the International Initiative on X-ray Fundamental Parameters (IIFP) shall be held as a virtual workshop on November 5 and 6, 2020, under the auspices of the European X-Ray Spectrometry Association (EXSA). To ensure broad international participation the meeting will consist of two separate sessions from about 13:30 h to 17:30 h (CET).

This event is supported by EXSA, H2020 CHALLENGES, and the EMPIR AEROMET II project.

As reflected by many of you in the IIFP roadmap and its update, it is now important to validate the FP values determined during the IIFP initiative and to establish recommendations for users. Thus, a major goal of this meeting shall be the discussion and assessment of existing FP values by means of appropriate tools to be implemented. These could include dedicated study groups or other kinds of joint activities aiming at the measurement or calculation of key values and the establishment of an up-to-date database.
