February 6-10, 2017
AMAS XIV - 14th Australian Microbeam Biennial Symposium
Brisbane, Australia

The Australian Microbeam Analysis Society (AMAS) is a special interest group of the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society (AMMS). AMAS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and advancement of the knowledge of the science and practice of all microanalysis techniques useful for investigating the ultrastructure and function of materials in diverse areas of biological, materials, medical and physical sciences. Members of AMAS meet nationally at the biennial AMAS Symposium and on alternate years at the biennial conference of AMMS. Click here for the meeting brochure.

February 23-24, 2017
Microscopy Characterization of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces
Queen Mary University, London, UK

The meeting is dedicated to microscopy of materials comprised of both organic and inorganic constituents (in close proximity) and is aimed at bringing together experts from both the life science and materials science communities to address this challenging and increasingly important topic.

RMS | Cryogenic Preparation and Imaging Strategies for Soft Matter in Materials Science
Queen Mary University, London, UK

This lecture series focuses on applied electron microscopy for the characterization of hydrated samples (hydrogels, colloids, hydrated polymers, polymer-peptide hybrids, scaffolds for cell culture evaluations) using cryo-preservation and characterization of materials in their pristine/life-like state. Several techniques that have been well established in life sciences research will be presented in the context of materials science. Click here for details and to register.

2017 Arizona Imaging and Microanalysis Society Conference
Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ

The Arizona Imaging and Microanalysis Society hosts its annual conference every spring. This meeting provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about new advancements in microscopy and network with other professionals. An image ethics workshop and student poster session are also included.

May 14 – 19, 2017
International Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy Meeting (EDGE 2017)
Okuma, Okinawa, Japan

The next International Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy Meeting (EDGE 2017), will be held at Okuma, Okinawa, Japan, May 14 – 19, 2017. The purpose of the meeting is to cover the latest developments in electron energy loss spectroscopy and related techniques in the transmission electron microscope. The event is attended by approximately 100-130 participants from around the world in an informal setting and is aimed at promoting scientific discussions and cross-fertilization of ideas from complementary techniques. Abstracts will be due January 22, 2017. More information can be found in the attached flyer and at the conference website at: Best Regards, Scientific and Local Host Committee Chairs Odile Stéphan, Peter Crozier and Koji Kimoto.

May 29-31, 2017
Electron Microscopy at High Temporal Resolution
University of Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France

The scope of the workshop is the presentation and discussion of the state of the art in transmission electron microscopy from the millisecond to the femtosecond. Electron microscopy with high temporal resolution has already found numerous applications, from materials science to biology, in the study of dynamic phenomena such as transient states, phase transformations, or chemical reactions. Pulsed electron beams make the timescale of picoseconds to femtoseconds accessible to microscopy with nanometer spatial resolution. With continuous electron beams, the millisecond time scale has been reached at atomic resolution by using new cameras and detection systems.

June 6-8, 2017
ToScA, Tomography for Scientific Advancement
University of Texas, Austin, Texas

Presentations will address hard and soft tissue imaging, understanding materials in 3D, recent advances in hardware and software, and a broad range of applications in tomography. This symposium will include pre-conference hands-on software workshops, keynote speakers, student talks and poster presentations, and an image competition. The meeting provides an opportunity for open discussions, networking with researchers and commercial industry representatives, and a platform to engage in collaborations.

September 25-29, 2017
Fourteenth Congress of the Inter-American Committee of Microscopy Societies
Varadero Beach, Cuba

The Fourteenth Congress of the Inter-American Committee of Microscopy Societies CIASEM 2017 will be held in Varadero Beach, Cuba, from 25 to 29 September 2017 and is organized by the Cuban Society of Microscopy. This is the second time that our society organizes a congress CIASEM. Sponsored by the Cuban Society of Morphological Sciences, CIASEM 2017 is the result of the efforts of our national Organizing Committee and together with our excellent team of international scientific advisors, to provide us with a very exciting Scientific Program, covering developments and applications of Microscopy in the themes of Instrumentation and Analysis, Materials Sciences, Biological Sciences and Teaching Morphological Sciences. The Cuban Society of Microscopy is inserted into the Cuban Society of Morphological Sciences, and belongs to CIASEM since 1997. We are also a member of IFSM (International Federation of Societies of Microscopy). The memories of these events will be published in Acta Microscopic., Vol. 26, Supp. A, 2017.
