EMAG Conference

The EMAG conference in 2017 will again be part of The Royal Microscopical Society’s Microscience Microscopy Congress (MMC2017) on 3-6 July 2017. For details see the conference website, the call for papers poster or the general flyer.

Abstract submission closes 17 February 2017. On acceptance full papers will be requested before the start of the conference.

EMAG 2017 will boast:

  • Three days of talks each with two parallel sessions
  • Topics include various electron microscopy themes in the life and physical sciences (see below)
  • Flexible scientific programme = decided by the abstracts submitted
  • Lively poster sessions
  • Published proceedings with full papers peer reviewed during the meeting
  • An impressive list of world class EMAG invited speakers
  • Special EMAG social on Tuesday 4 July (opportunity to catch up with old friends and to make new ones)

We especially welcome submissions from students and there will be opportunities for flash oral presentations as part of the main conference programme.

By being part of mmc2017 the EMAG2017 conference will have:

  • Conference dinner with opportunities for Interdisciplinary socialising
  • Large exhibition of microscopy and imaging equipment, with an expected one hundred companies demonstrating the widest range of equipment and consumables.
  • Many opportunities for interaction and cross disciplinary discussions with participants from other complementary meetings occurring simultaneously in the same venue (including FIB User Meeting, Scanning Probe Microscopy and Frontiers in BioImaging).
  • Many company workshops and training events
  • Opportunities for participants to contribute to the RMS International Scientific Imaging Competitions.
