The International Conference on X-Ray Lasers (ICXRL) was established as a biannual event to promote the development of advanced extreme UV and X-ray sources, and their scientific applications in various fields. The 2020 edition of the ICXRL was organized as an online conference by Davide Bleiner, Empa Dübendorf.

Latest results involving state-of-the-art X-ray sources generated from intense lasers, plasmas or accelerated particles were presented. The program included keynote lectures, invited lectures, technology focus talks and contributed short talks.

All registered participants have access to the session videos on the conference website (login required):
