The Scientific Programme for the 15th European Microscopy Congress includes six plenary talks, 123 invited speakers and 330 oral presentations spread across 72 sessions that embrace light and electron microscopy.
The Congress has built its reputation on the Physical Sciences, but recent conferences have included sessions on the Life Sciences. For 2012, the conference is presenting a balanced programme.
The quality and balance of the conference is matched by an exhibition that will have over 1,700m2 of stand space. This has been booked by more than 100 manufacturers and suppliers of equipment and consumables for light, electron and scanning probe microscopy, plus spectroscopy and cytometry.
The conference includes an extensive "poster village" with over 730 posters being presented over the course of five days. It promises to be a busy and vibrant place.
The 15th European Microscopy Congress opens on Sunday 16th September with registration from 1pm. The Pre-Congress workshops are scheduled for the afternoon, and are followed by two plenary lectures, and then a drinks reception in the evening. The conference and exhibition run from Monday 17th to Friday 21st September.
