WavemiX2024 – NEXT Annual Meeting webpage

Dates: 8-12 July 2024


Location: IMDEA nanociencia – Madrid – Spain


Abstract submission deadline: 7 June 2024


Registration deadline: 28 June 2024


Fees: The event is free of charge

The upcoming WavemiX (“Wave mixing in the EUV and X-ray”) annual workshop will be a meeting of the newly launched COST Action CA22148 ( , An international network for Non-linear Extreme Ultraviolet to hard X-ray techniques (NEXT – The main goal of NEXT is to promote the development and application of advanced non-linear extreme ultraviolet (EUV) to X-ray spectroscopic and imaging techniques, enabled by Free Electron Laser (FEL) facilities and lab-based High-order Harmonic Generation (HHG) sources.

Moreover the WavemiX2024 – NEXT Annual Meeting will be a satellite meeting of Ultrafast Phenomena Conference to take place from 14 to 19 July 2024 in Barcelona, Spain ( The Ultrafast Phenomena Conference series began in 1976 and is held every two years. It is widely recognized as the premier international forum for gathering the community of scientists and engineers working in research and technology related to ultrafast phenomena.

The WavemiX2024 – NEXT Annual Meeting will focus on the latest theoretical and experimental development in the models, generation and application of few-femtosecond and attosecond pulses at FELs and HHG Sources, with emphasis on non-linear phenomena. The workshop will serve as a catalyst to promote the discussion of novel approaches for the generation of coherent pulses in these spectral ranges and for the implementation of novel schemes of ultrafast non-linear spectroscopy.

The meeting will be organized in 18 scientific sessions, with a series of invited talks (35+5 minutes each) and contributed talks (duration 15+5 minutes each) selected by the scientific committee of the meeting. Ample time will be dedicated to general and free discussions via coffee breaks, poster sessions and round tables. A special talk on the “Origin of biases” will be delivered by Dr. F. Logermann (MPG – Germany) expert in the field. Finally, in the spirit of creating a bridge between industry and scientists and open possibilities for secondments, a series of short pitches talks will be given by our industry partners.

Registration to the NEXT COST Action, free of charge, can be done HERE.

Frauke Logermann (she/her),  M.Sc & M.A.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are not a nice to have – but a central governance issue that must be holistically integrated into all organizational processes

Frauke Logermann is a social scientist and Head of Talent, Gender & Diversity Affairs in the Human Resources Development & Opportunities department of the Max Planck Society (MPG). Since 2018, she has been shaping and advising the research organization on numerous topics relating to diversity-oriented talent and personnel development. Her main tasks include the conception and coordination of cross-organizational diversity & personnel development projects, committee support for the Presidential Commission on Opportunities, and monitoring the MPG’s voluntary commitment to increasing the proportion of women scientists in leadership positions.

Prior to this role, she held several positions as an EU officer and science manager, including at the European Commission’s Education and Culture Executive Agency and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. Since 2022, she has also been involved as an external evaluator of the Helmholtz Association’s «diversity-sensitive recruitment» funding program and works as a part-time trainer for diversity & inclusion in higher education.

Talk & Learn-Café. Diversity, Equity & Inclusion:

“Diversity, equity & inclusion – buzzwords that seem to pop-up everywhere in our professional and private life. Though there is no universal definition of “diversity”, in an organizational context diversity mostly refers to differences among people based on factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, education, profession or disability. In general, many studies show that a diverse workforce holds many benefits for everyone within an organization, such as increased creativity and improved problem-solving skills.

In this interactive talk, we will take a closer look at the specific benefits diverse teams offer organization in terms of research performance, administration and management. We will also address possible challenges that may arise when navigating diverse teams and take a deep-dive into the subconscious mechanisms guiding our behaviour.

Come and learn, reflect and discuss!”
