The AfLS3 and the AfPS2020 were due to be held in Kigali, Rwanda, from 16th - 21st November 2020. However, due to the current COVID-19 global scenario, this is postponed provisionally to AfLS3 from 15th - 20th November 2021. We now present the AfLS2020 - AfPS2020 Virtual Workshop with a restricted agenda from the 18th - 20th November. This site focusses on the AfLS2020 event, with the AfLS2020 / AfPS2020 overlap.

Previous AfLS Conferences were the second African Light Source Conference (AfLS2) held in Accra, Ghana, from 28 Jan - 3 Feb 2019, which in turn followed first African Light Source Conference and Workshop (AfLS1) held at the ESRF in Grenoble in November 2015. During the AfLS1, the roadmap towards the ultimate establishment of an AfLS was developed, together with a Steering Committee which had both a large African and global footprint. The Roadmap relates to developing the user base, the projects, deep capacity building, promoting networks, scientific and technical exchanges, building associated local infrastructural capacity, raising the profile of the project politically and developing the Pan African strategic plan with African leadership. AfLS2 built on these foundations, in particular, developing the Pan-African and socio-political aspects, while the science and the motivation grew ever stronger.
