MICROSCIENCE 2008 - organised by microscopists for microscopists

Leading lights presenting at new look microscopy conference

London, UK | Posted on February 7th, 2008

World leading authorities on all aspects of microscopy and analysis are being brought together this summer in a new-format scientific conference which will run concurrently with a major microscopy and imaging exhibition at London's ExCeL on 23-26 June. Now streamed into three parallel symposia the MICROSCIENCE 2008 international conference has been carefully planned by leading scientists within the Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) to ensure that life and physical scientists alike will find sessions of great interest over the entire convention duration.

From discussions on live cell imaging and optical proteomics with Professor Tony Ng (Kings College London) to insights into Applications of 21st Century Scanning Electron Microscopy for materials characterisation provided by Professor David Joy (University of Tennessee) and Dr Debbie Stokes (FEI), numerous world class experts on an array of techniques have been invited by the RMS to discuss the very latest developments in light and electron microscopy.

"Microscopy is a fundamental tool for driving science forward, and methods and techniques that are still under development or new to the market will also be previewed within the conference to provide inspiration for future research", said Paul Monaghan, RMS Honorary Secretary for Science. For example, scanning optical microscopy luminary Professor Tony Wilson (Oxford University) and Professor Philippe Bastiaens (Max Planck Institute & University of Dortmund), who specialises in quantifying biochemical reactions in cells using optical approaches, will both be presenting in the New Innovations in Light Microscopy sessions.

This year for the first time there is also opportunity to present submitted papers in the three parallel conference symposia which incorporate 15 different sessions led by subject specialists. The symposia themes are: Characterisation and nanofabrication of advanced materials; The cell in time and space; and Microscopy and analysis at the frontiers. To facilitate the submission of 200 word abstracts of both oral and poster presentations for reviewing and scoring, the RMS has introduced a new on-line submission system. "MICROSCIENCE is a very inclusive event and we encourage all researchers who are active in all areas of microscopy, imaging and analysis to submit abstracts," confirmed Rob Flavin, RMS Executive Director.

All abstracts must be submitted using the on-line submission system available at:
Final deadline for abstracts for oral presentation - 31st March 2008
Final deadline for abstracts for poster presentation - 31st May 2008
