Abstract:
Thousands of microscopy professionals from around the world convened at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana for the Microscopy & Microanalysis (M&M) 2013 meeting from August 4-8, 2013. M&M is the joint annual meeting of three professional associations: the Microscopy Society of America (MSA), the Microanalysis Society (MAS), and the International Metallographic Society (IMS). The meeting had a record high attendance, with 1554 scientific attendees and 1186 exhibitor personnel, for a total of 2740 participants.

Microscopy Society of America Highlights Successes of Annual Microscopy and Microanalysis Meeting

Reston, VA | Posted on September 6th, 2013

The scientific program featured thirty symposia in which participants gathered to discuss the latest advances in microscopy and microanalysis instrumentation and techniques and their applications in the biological and physical sciences. The technical symposia were supplemented by educational offerings in the form of Sunday short courses, tutorials, evening vendor tutorials, pre-meeting workshops, and in-week intensive workshops.

Complementing the program is one of the largest exhibitions of microscopy and microanalysis instrumentation and resources in the world, this year represented by 107 companies. The M&M Virtual Exhibit Hall is still accessible online for those who wish to survey the diverse offerings that were available to attendees and to connect with vendors post-meeting.

In addition to the scientific program, many important awards were conferred during the meeting, including the major awards conferred annually by the sponsoring societies. Daily poster awards were conferred to recognize the best student posters in the instrumentation and techniques, biological sciences applications, and physical sciences applications categories. A full list of M&M Awardees can be accessed online.

"Microscopy & Microanalysis is the one meeting you do not want to miss if you are involved with microscopy and microanalysis," says Ernie Hall, President of the Microscopy Society of America. "The meeting provides excellent opportunities for educational development, career advancement, and the unique chance to connect and network with industry professionals worldwide."

Next year's meeting, Microscopy & Microanalysis 2014, will take place August 3-7, 2014 in Hartford, Connecticut. M&M 2014 promises to have a strong international flavor: the quadrennial meeting of the International Union of Microbeam Analysis Societies (IUMAS), will be held in conjunction with M&M 2014, which will also be joined by the Microscopical Society of Canada / Société de Microscopie du Canada (MSC/SMC). Paper submission will open in November 2013.
