On behalf of the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM), it is my pleasure to introduce the 20th International Microscopy Congress (IMC20), to be held in September 2022, in the stunning Convention and Exhibition Centre in Busan. IMC is the Olympics of microscopy; held every four years and attracting delegates from across the globe. The program will include world-renowned plenary speakers alongside an extensive trade exhibition where leading suppliers launch ground-breaking new instruments.
It is a particular pleasure to introduce the Korean Society of Microscopy (KSM) as the host for IMC20 which will be held in Korea for the first time. A tradition of IMC events has been a vibrant social calendar and delegates will have ample opportunity to enjoy fabulous Korean food and to explore historical and cultural attractions in the Busan area. I look forward to warmly welcoming you and your family to Korea in 2023.

Electron microscopies (EM) are demonstrating more and more impressive insight into condensed matter physics. This minicolloquium will share the most advanced applications and perspectives across the electron microscopy community.
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) boasts sub-atomic lateral resolution combined with spectroscopic selectivity down to meV range and ultrafast time resolution, into the attosecond range, making it one of the most complete microscopic tools for the investigation of carefully prepared thin samples. The introduction of focused ion beams (FIB) dramatically increased the range of application of TEM. Further advances include gaining control on the angular momentum of primary electrons and acquiring in operando capabilities to address real world phenomena. Scanning electron Microscopy (SEM) is still mostly devoted to imaging applications on bulk systems, featuring tunable depth sensitivity and the ability of rapidly switching from large fields of view down to nanoscale lateral resolution. Analytical spectroscopic tools like X-Ray fluorescence and cathodoluminescence provide elemental
concentration, chemical and electronic structure bulk properties, where the lateral resolution and energy selectivity are a few orders of magnitude larger than in TEM. The advent of low voltage SEM, low energy EM (LEEM) and controlled environments pave the way to still more pioneering developments towards highly surface sensitive, energy and time selective analytical capabilities. Local insights into the electronic structure of condensed matter were demonstrated . The surface sensitivity of the SEM probe would make a very fruitful match with the already demonstrated capabilities of TEMs for bulk properties, with the further possibility of implementing in operando non-destructive studies. Ab-initio numerical modeling plays an increasingly crucial role to fully exploit EM.
Abstract for oral and poster contribution can be submitted at https://eventi.cnism.it/cmd30-fismat/submission_form within the DEADLINE of April, 15th, 2023. You will have to select the mini-colloquium in the second submission page.

York – United KingdomThis two day 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 two days consist of short tutorials followed by hands-on practice.Day 1 takes participants through the basic principles of confocal microscopy and then trains them, through hands-on practice, how to configure and image multicolour, multidimensional samples using a confocal microscope.Day 2 builds on the experience of Day 1 and enables participants to try FRAP and spectral profiling.

The Light Microscopy Summer School is a two 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. Students usually come from a range of backgrounds, within both research and commercial organisations. All benefited greatly from the Course and left with increased understanding and skills.

The 7th Microscopy Characterisation of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces (MCOII) meeting will return to an in-person format in 2023 and will be hosted for the first time in North America at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, home of the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy.
The transatlantic scientific organizing team of Nadja V. Tarakina (MPIKG, Germany) and Kathryn Grandfield (McMaster University, Canada) have put together an exciting two-day programme. As usual, the first day will be more general, covering a broad range of microscopy approaches (correlative microscopy solutions, in-situ liquid microscopy methods, low-voltage electron microscopy and many more) in the context of imaging hybrid and soft matter.
On the second day, a special Focus Lecture Series, entitled “Multi-dimensional and multiscale microscopy of organic-inorganic interface” will cover a more-detailed range of lectures on tomographic methods spanning light, X-ray and electron microscopy, as well as atom probe tomography and in situ electron microscopy/tomography.
This conference will bring together world-leading experts in microscopy, highlighting the latest achievements, new opportunities and outstanding challenges in probing beam-sensitive and hybrid materials and their interfaces.

Quantitative Phase Imaging (QPI) is a novel label-free microscopy technique bringing an utterly new contrast into the live-cell imaging field. It allows for extracting quantitative data from unlabeled cells and monitoring them non-invasively. Another benefit of QPI technology is the ability to precisely segment cells due to the incoherent light source used in Q-Phase. The seminar will explain the principle of technology and show the broad range of applications focusing on label-free analysis, such as cell growth, cell death, cell migration, and others. The webinar will be held in English.

This Flow Cytometry Course is aimed at both clinical applications and applications in cell biology, with the common fundamentals covered on Day 1 and 2. The course then splits into clinical applications and applications in cell biology streams, from practical demonstrations to lectures highlighting not just the applications, but best practise as well.The course is constructed as a set of three modules. You can elect to attend the course from between two to five days, depending on the modules selected.The modules consist of lectures interspersed with sessions in the laboratory. It is anticipated that instruments from three manufacturers will be available for practical work.This course is open to all and is suitable for those who are relatively new to flow cytometry and who wish to expand their experience with applications and specific analysis.A trade exhibition will be held at this event on Wednesday 14 September.

The series of Abercrombie meetings have been held since the death of Michael Abercrombie in 1979. Michael was a pioneer in the field of investigating cell behaviour using timelapse microscopy. Abercrombie meetings are held only every five years and therefore offer an excellent opportunity to review the major advances in our understanding of cell motility and look to the new emerging concepts in the field.

We aim for a similar reach on the 100-150 participants of key FIB users mostly within Europe, and will invite 3-5 keynote speakers globally to join our meeting. We would welcome all EMS representatives promoting the society at the workshop, and appreciate if you could announce our event on your homepage.So far, we were fortunate to keep the registration free for all participants due to the generous contributions. This allowed us to offer refreshments during the workshop breaks as well as a conference dinner to exchange ideas in a more informal setting. I am pleased that this years venue, the historic sail boat Rickmer Rickmers with a view over Hamburgs harbor, will capture both Hanseatic tradition as well as the cities future developments. As you have kindly supported last years event, I would like to ask if you were interested in doing it again this year.I thank you for your consideration and hope to see EMS in Hamburg soon,
