Between its spaces we find the “Marqués de Comillas” Hall, emblematic and spectacular complex resulting from the enlargement of Gothic naves of the seventeenth century and where the ICALEPCS 2017 Dinner will be held.

Alba visit

ALBA is a 3rd generation Synchrotron Light Source located in Cerdanyola del Vallès (Barcelona), that started operation in 2012.
It is a complex of electron accelerators to produce synchrotron light, which allows the visualization of the atomic structure of matter as well as the study of its properties.

ALBA currently has eight operational state-of-the-art Beamlines, comprising soft and hard X-rays, which are devoted mainly to biosciences, condensed matter and materials science. Additionally, three new Beamlines are in construction.

This large scientific infrastructure provides more than 5,000 hours of beam time per year and is available for academic and industrial users, serving more than 1,000 researchers every year. Since 2012, ALBA has been hosting official users, from Spain, and a significant part from other countries as well.
Managed by the Consortium for the Construction, Equipping and Exploitation of the Synchrotron Light Source (CELLS),
