A series of high-pressure science workshops at synchrotron sources highlighted the developments in the field of geosciences and materials sciences, with the proposal of the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation on Advances and Synergy of High-Pressure Sciences. Several trends also emphasized the advances and synergy of high-pressure sciences by removing the boundary between dedicated and non-dedicated high-pressure beamlines. The traditional dedicated high-pressure beamlines at synchrotron facilities continue to take the leading role in cutting-edge technical development. The integration of multiple techniques at the dedicated high-pressure facilities remains active after the success of HPCAT at APS. M. Lang et al. highlighted a new avenue to high-pressure research for irradiation modification of structures and properties, which will undoubtedly have many geological and engineering applications.
