More than 680 delegates from 28 countries attended the highly-successful tenth international conference on Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation (SRI2009) hosted by the Australian Synchrotron from 27 September to 2 October 2009 in Melbourne. The largest number of international delegates came from Japan, US, Germany, France, UK and China.

Delegates enjoyed a stimulating science program with 148 oral presentations, including seven world- renowned plenary speakers, 26 invited speakers and 115 symposia speakers selected from abstracts. Two poster sessions showcased 450 posters, and 500 delegates visited the Australian Synchrotron for a facility tour. 

A full social program included a lavish reception at Government House hosted by the Victorian Government. At a gala dinner in the banquet hall of the conference venue, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, 446 guests were entertained with a display of Aboriginal culture by members of an Indigenous dance troupe.

Associated events included several satellite meetings, an Italian-Australian lunch hosted by the Italian embassy and a public lecture entitled ‘Seeing into the past with synchrotron light’ presented at the Melbourne Museum by plenary speaker Paul Tafforeau from ESRF.

The twelfth international SRI conference will take place in Lyons, France in 2012, jointly hosted by the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and the Soleil Synchrotron.
