The Final Event of the Short Wavelength Laboratory Sources COST Action was organized as a joint conference of the COST twin Actions IE0601 and MP0601 in November 2011 in Paris, and was dedicated to the memory of Professor Zsolt Kajcsos, who was involved in both Actions and who passed away several months earlier. The conference venue was the Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Paris, rue Lauriston 74 – all lectures, poster sessions, lunches, and evaluation sessions proceeded in the same place.
The meeting of the Action IE0601 – “Wood Science for Conservation of Cultural Heritage” – started already on 14th November. On November 16th, researchers from both Actions were participating in a Joint Session “Photon Technologies for Conservation of Wooden Cultural Heritage”, with lectures showing the synergy of the Actions and common scientific interests. On this day the meeting was visited by the wife and daughter of Professor Kajcsos and the meeting program included a short session in memory of Zsolt Kajcsos.
Two next days were devoted exclusively to the MP0601 topics.
Most of talks and several posters presented at the meeting are accessible through this web page. Links to these materials are listed below.

Thursday 17 November
EUV and soft X-ray spectral modeling for nonequilibrium gadolinium plasma
Veronika Pickova, Radka Havlíková, Ladislav Pina
Unfortunately, due to the last moment resignation of many registered participants the poster session was significantly smaller than expected. From the same reasons, also few talks had to be canceled. On the other side, few researchers participated in the event without previous registration (or late registration, what made them not eligible for reimbursement).
Session I (Chair: Alan Michette)
Keynote Lecture: Anatoly Snigirev
15 years of X-ray refractive optics
Session II (Chair: Davide Bleiner)
Paolo Di Lazzaro
Session III (Chair: Alessia Cedola)
Friday 18 November
Session IV (Chair: Paolo Di Lazzaro)
Grazing incidence aspheric and multilayer coated optics for x-ray sources
Session V (Chair: Leszek Ryc)
