The MEDSI workshop started at Swiss Light Source in 2000. The state of the art and outlook were presented on mechanical engineering design of equipments and instrumentation in third generation light sources. It was followed by the second workshop at Advanced Photon Source in 2002 and by the third one at European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in 2004. SPring-8 will host for fourth MEDSI workshop as a satellite meeting of SRI2006, covering the following scopes:
    Novel designs of accelerator and beamline components
    High precision positioning mechanisms
    Vibration and mechanical stability
    High heat load analysis and design
    Opto-mechanical devices
    Insertion devices, front ends and vacuum chambers
    Modelling and experimental validation aspects
    Sample environment specific conditioning
    Automation related mechanics
