  • Virtual EBSD

    12 and 13 April 2022

    The EBSD 2022 meeting will be held in a virtual format. The meeting will be live, with the main meeting on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 April 2022 at 13:00 BST/08:00 EDT/14:00 CEST/05:00 PDT.
    We have selected this format to encourage participation from the global electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) community and to support engagement from a wide range of participants, as well as reflecting on the on-going challenges related to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
    Our two “half-day” meeting will encourage sharing the latest developments and applications of EBSD-related microscopy methods. In this virtual format, we will also encourage clusters of researchers to independently register for the meeting, but where reasonable to host cluster-viewing at their host institution.
    The Annual UK-based EBSD meeting is an opportunity for the EBSD community to meet and share new developments and applications of EBSD, as well as related techniques that are commonly used to explore samples and materials within the geoscience, materials science & engineering, physics, and emerging applications from the biological communities. Talks will likely include state-of-the-art developments in instrumentation, new software developments, new techniques, as well as applications and use of EBSD, transmission Kikuchi diffraction (TKD), electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI), and related microscopy modalities.
    As part of this series, we continue to be excited to hear from those who use these techniques to further the understanding of applied science and engineering challenges, as well as industrial challenges (including the use of EBSD data in Industry 4.0).

  • Virtual Microscopy Characterisation of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces 2022

    01 and 02 March 2022

    The 6th Microscopy Characterisation of Organic–Inorganic Interfaces (MCOII) meeting will again be hosted virtually, but it will keep the main goals and aspirations of all the previous editions.  We will use the advantages of the virtual format and this time not only connect experts from different branches of the microscopy community (the life sciences and materials science) but also bridge two continents in a joint discussion on the challenging but increasingly important topic of studying hybrid organic–inorganic materials.

    The transatlantic scientific organiser team of Nadja V. Tarakina (MPIKG, Germany) and Lena F. Kourkoutis (Cornell University, USA) 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 gas and liquid microscopy methods, low-voltage electron microscopy and many more) in the context of imaging hybrid and soft matter.

    On the second day, the special Focus Lecture Series will provide an in-depth view on "Advances in Analytical Cryo-Electron Microscopy: From sample preparation to data acquisition to data analysis”. Cryo-electron microscopy has transformed life sciences by enabling the structure of macromolecules to be imaged down to the atomic scale. Recent developments in instrumentation and techniques have opened new opportunities for scientific discovery not only in life sciences but also in physical sciences and in areas where the two fields intersect. This lecture series will bring together world-leading experts in analytical electron microscopy, highlighting the latest achievements, new opportunities and outstanding challenges in probing beam-sensitive and hybrid materials and their interfaces.

    21 to 24 September 2021

    There can be no doubt that Cryo-EM continues to be a hot topic following the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for its development. In fact many cryo-techniques have been around for over 40 years and are in use in both academic and industrial settings being applied to a full range of soft matter and materials samples beyond single particle analysis of proteins. This course looks to educate scientists and engineers to the full range of cryo-techniques, who are looking to characterise, analyse and understand structure / function of their samples where stabilisation of volatiles (often water) is required.

  • European Light Microscopy Initiative 2021

    22 to 25 June 2021
    virtual Meeting

    The European Light Microscopy Initiative was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment. Its aim is to promote the quickly developing field of light microscopy as a fundamental research tool for the life sciences and to strengthen the channels of communication between researchers, core facilities and industry.

    The annual meeting, which has been running for two decades at various venues across Europe, has an excellent reputation within the microscopy community, making this meeting a key event in the calendar of hundreds of scientists and developers. The strength of this meeting lies in the mixture of scientific lectures on state-of-the-art, high-end microscopy combined with “hands-on” workshops and exhibition of the latest technology, organized by the leading companies in the field.

    Due to the current situation, the 2021 meeting will take place the first time in a virtual format. We will do our best to maintain the unique format as well as possible. The focus of the scientific sessions is on leading edge developments and its implementation to life science.

  • EBSD 2021

    20 and 21 April 2021
    Sheffield – United Kingdom

    The annual gathering draws together the whole Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) community, including leading international research scientists and engineers, early career researchers, and students to highlight the latest developments, from technique development through to applications.


    The EBSD meeting will take place in a virtual format. 


    We are anticipating contributions that range in scope spanning the geoscience, materials science & engineering, and mechanical engineering disciplines, as well as emerging applications from the biological communities. Talks will likely include state-of-the-art developments in instrumentation, new software algorithms, and new techniques developments, as well as the use of EBSD, transmission Kikuchi diffraction, electron channelling contrast imaging (ECCI) and related microscopy modalities. Additionally, we anticipate hearing applications driven talks which engage these approaches to reveal new insight into the microstructure of materials systems in emerging scientific applications and industrial challenges, particularly the use of EBSD data in Industry 4.0.


    The meeting will be preceded in the mornings, by one of two optional workshops, for both advanced and novice users. The advanced course, delivered by Prof João Fonseca’s group at the University of Manchester, focusses on the use and understanding of High-Resolution Digital Image Correlation (HRDIC) combined with EBSD, centred on technical requirements and the underlying principles of post-processing data analysis. The novice course, delivered by Prof Brad Wynne, focusses on understanding what is under the hood of your EBSD software, with particular emphasis on maximising the potential of your EBSD data both before acquiring your data and during its analysis.


  • Basics of Electron Microscopy Virtual Spring School

    19 to 22 April 2021
    Virtual Meeting

    The RMS Basics of Electron Microscopy Virtual Spring School is aimed at those seeking an introduction to electron microscopy.

    The course, set across 4 afternoon sessions, will provide delegates with a mix of lectures, live microscope and sample preparation demonstration sessions, with lots of time for Q&A and discussion of participants projects. With a maximum of 10 participants per stream, we will provide plenty of opportunity for engagement with the course speakers.

    The course will be delivered in three streams, TEM for biological specimens, SEM for materials and TEM for materials. Delegates will be asked to choose one stream to work within, although some of the theoretical content will be shared between the streams. By the end of the course, delegates will have an understanding of the basic anatomy of the microscope and image formation, learn general methods of sample preparation and receive an introduction to microscope operation.
