Nanomaterials feature large at Microscience 2006
The Royal Microscopical Society
Held every two years, Microscience is Europe's largest microscopy and imaging event devoted exclusively to the interests of microscopy and imaging equipment users
In the first announcement for the Microscience 2006 conference, the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) has confirmed the importance of nanomaterials and materials science in the scientific programme that begins on 27 June 2006.
Nanomaterials, Measurement and Markets aims to connect fundamental research, market applications and trends in nanotechnology.
In this keynote session, chaired by Peter Dobson, internationally renowned scientists from North America and Europe will discuss how new nano-scaled materials and the knowledge of how nano-scale structures influence properties can be exploited in new products.
Other speakers include Nicole Grobert (Oxford), Matthias Werner (Germany), Wolfram Calvet (Germany), Hans Fecht (Germany), Alex Dommann (Switzerland) and Uwe Erb (Canada).
The session was organised by Alison Crossley following the intense interest generated by the nanotechnology debate at Microscience 2004.
Chaired by the BBC's David Shukman, this debate also attracted world-leading authorities and included a contribution from Doug Parr, Greenpeace's chief scientist.
Held every two years, Microscience is Europe's largest microscopy and imaging event devoted exclusively to the interests of microscopy and imaging equipment users.
Organised by the Royal Microscopical Society, it includes an extensive scientific conference with lectures, tutorials, poster sessions, seminars and workshops.
In the exhibition hall, visitors are able to see the latest advances in light microscopy, Sem, Tem, software and hardware for image processing and analysis, plus specimen preparation equipment and allied laboratory supplies from a wide range of manufacturers.
Microscience 2006 will be held at London's Excel conference and exhibition centre on 27-29 June 2006, and further details will be posted as they become available.
The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) is an international organisation with members who are actively involved in all current and developing techniques of microscopy and image analysis drawn from over 53 countries.
A truly inter-disciplinary society, it promotes microscopy and its development and educates young people in the relevance and use of microscopical techniques in modern science.
This is achieved through regular meetings and courses, workshops, publications, specific qualifications and the sponsorship of light microscopy in primary schools.
The Royal Microscopical Society's Microscience 2010 meeting, which was held at Excel London in June, featured 18 symposia within the 'life', 'materials' and 'new frontiers' themes.
The European Microscopy Society has designated an EMS Extension to Microscience 2010, meaning it will receive more support and host the European Society's general assembly.
The Royal Microscopical Society has opened its biennial International Micrograph Competition, the winners for which will be announced on 30 June at Microscience 2010.
The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) has announced that London's Excel will host Microscience 2010, a conference and exhibition on microscopy, imaging and analysis in the life and physical sciences.
London's ExCeL is to host Microscience 2010, Europe's premier international conference and exhibition on microscopy, imaging and analysis in the life and physical sciences.
