PMCx60 Overview

The Pre-meeting Congress X60 (PMCx60) is an annual meeting organized by the MSA Student Council (StC) for Students, Postdocs, and Early-career Professionals in Microscopy and Microanalysis. The PMCx60 is held in conjunction with the annual Microscopy and Microanalysis (M&M) Meeting.

X60

The PMCx60 is organized by, and tailored to, students and early-career professionals, however all are welcome to attend. The PMCx60 offers a highly interactive forum for participants to discuss their cutting-edge research, and to network and engage with peers ahead of the main meeting. Invited speakers are selected from the awardees to be honored at M&M, giving attendees a unique opportunity to sample the best research from their peers in biological science, physical science, analytical science, and instrumentation. Contributed posters also give attendees an opportunity to share their work with peers in an intimate and casual setting.

Additional professional development activities include a luncheon featuring a panel of recent graduates currently working in industry, academia, policy, and government labs. The PMCx60 and M&M are wonderful opportunities for students (undergraduate and graduate), postdocs, and early-career professionals to network with peers, members of academia and industry, as well as vendors from a variety of top companies who are invited to exhibit their latest developments during the PMCx60 Poster and Extended Networking Sessions.
