03 to 06 July 2017
Manchester – United Kingdom
The Microscience Microscopy Congress, incorporating EMAG is returning to Manchester in the Summer of 2017.
mmc2017 will provide something for everyone with an interest in microscopy and imaging.
With an international 3 day conference consisting of six parallel sessions, a huge exhibition of over 100 companies plus a range of free training opportunities and extra satellite events and drop-in workshops, you can be sure that mmc2017 will enable you to return to the workplace with new skills, knowledge and expertise.
Growing on the success of previous mmc-series events, mmc2017 will include the annual meetings of the EMAG, Frontiers in Bioimaging, SPM, the Microscopy Society of Ireland and the Scottish Microscopy Group.
Abstract Submission and Registration is now open.

04 and 05 July 2017
Graz – Austria
Abstract application deadline: 30 April 2017
07 July 2017
University of Leeds – United Kingdom
Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy with lots of time for discussion, this year the workshop will focus on the topic of labelling. Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenging techniques, and give an insight into future potential developments.
12 and 13 July 2017
Francis Crick Institute – London – United Kingdom
The Francis Crick Institute in London will host a symposium to celebrate the opening of the new Electron Microscopy Science Technology Platforms, with national and international invited speakers presenting the cutting edge in application of imaging technology to answer critical research questions, from molecules to whole organisms. The symposium will include presentations on new frontiers in imaging and big data analysis and will be accompanied by an interactive exhibition. The symposium will be followed by a day of hands-on workshops and demonstrations, using a wide range of the techniques and technologies housed in the new facilities.
12 to 14 July 2017
The Francis Crick Institute in London – London – United Kingdom
Closing date for registrations is 21st June 2017.
16 to 19 July 2017
York – United Kingdom
The RMS Light Microscopy summer school is an annual, residential three day course held at the University of York covering the principles of light microscopy. Participants are also trained in practical issues surrounding light microscopy. After introductory presentations, the course is taught predominantly through hands-on practical sessions.
The course is suitable for both novices and more experienced users wanting to gain a greater understanding of the microscope and feedback every year is always fantastic.
20 and 21 July 2017
York – United Kingdom
This 2 day RMS annual confocal course utilises many different sample types and fluorescent probes (DNA stains, classic antibody labels and fluorescent proteins) which are chosen to best demonstrate particular problems and techniques. Focus is always on the techniques they enable and the problems they generate, which will be applicable to any sample types. The 2-days consist of short tutorials followed by hands-on practice.
Day 1 takes participants through the basic principles of confocal microscopy and then trains through hands-on practice how to configure and image multicolour, multidimensional samples using a confocal microscope.
Day 2 builds on the experiences of day 1 and enables participants to try FRAP and spectral profiling.
31 July to 04 August 2017
The ESRIC super-resolution summer school is designed to give participants a thorough grounding in super-resolution microscopy in an informal and intimate setting. It brings together leading academics and the major suppliers of super-resolution microscopes to provide expertise and guidance in the theory and practise of structured illumination microscopy (SIM), stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED), AiryScan Microscopy and single molecule localization microscopies (PALM, sptPALM and dSTORM).
06 to 10 August 2017
St. Louis – Missouri – USA
CenErgy II: International PhD Summer School on Advanced transmission and scanning electron microscopy in Materials Science
14 to 25 August 2017
CenErgy introduces students to four concepts of advanced electron microscopy applied to advanced functional materials: environmental transmission electron microscopy (TEM), spectrum imaging of elemental and chemical information, high performance scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and 3D SEM. CenErgy commences with two days of theory covering the four topics and students can select two of these to perform a total of four full days of hands-on microscopy experiments. The remainder of the school then focuses on advanced data analysis based on the experimental sessions. CenErgy participants completing the school are also entitled to 5 ECTS points.
Registration deadline: 1st July 2017
Limited number of “early bird” places: 800 €. Standard fee: 900 €
Registration includes: transport between venues, lunches and refreshments, and social events. Accommodation is not included - a list of some accommodation oprions will be made available after the 2nd announcement.
