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.

Porquerolles – France
Electron optics and spectroscopy instrumentation developments in the last 20 years have considerably widened the range of applicability of electron beam techniques to nano-optics: meV beam energy spread, single atoms imaging capabilities, electron wavefunction shaping, fs pump probe experiments, and efficient light coupling to and from samples are a reality. This has enabled the study of a variety of excitations (plasmons, phonons, excitons...) at extreme spatial, temporal and spectral resolutions. Therefore, new theories have blossomed to explain exciting results coming from electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS), cathodoluminescence (CL) and photon induced near-filed electron microscopy (PINEM), and central concepts of nanooptics or quantum optics have been shown to be applicable to electron-based spectroscopies.
For this reason, it is high time for a school aiming at spreading knowledge about these new concepts and techniques and at fomenting the interest of a new generation of academics in this blooming field. That is the object of the eBEAM school focused on electron spectroscopies for nano-optics.
Courses will cover: the basics of electron instrumentation and spectroscopies; electron-matter-light interaction; electron spectroscopies of optical material; time, space, and quantum coherence in electron spectroscopy; advanced EELS and CL; photoemission etc.

Regardless whether you’re imaging with a widefield, confocal, or super-resolution microscope (STED, Airyscan, PALM/STORM), all optical images suffer from artifacts. If you are interested in identifying and correcting these to produce high-quality and reliable results, then this workshop may interest you. We’ll discuss the imaging process, acquisition pitfalls such as spherical aberration, undersampling, photon noise and the Point Spread Function, and how to solve these imaging issues. Topics also include deconvolution, restoration, visualization, and the importance of reliable quantitative analysis.

OnlineThe 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).

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.
