  • 14th European Microscopy Congress

    01 to 05 September 2008
    Eurogress Centre – Aachen – Germany

    A "Declaration of Intend" was signed early 2005 by all parties involved (EMS, DGE, RWTH, IFSM) followed by the signing of a formal agreement by all parties at the end of September 2005 !

    On April 10, 2006, EMS has signed a contract with Eveni Conference Management for the on-line management of registration, abstract submission and refereeing at future EMC and other events organized by or in collaboration with EMS. We are convinced that this is a major step in the support that EMS will be giving to European scientists in organizing local, regional or international meetings.

    EMS is looking for candidates for the organization of the 15th European Microscopy Congress EMC 2012. With the growing interest in microscopy, EMC is looking for congress sites capable of accommodating around 1500 attendants following up to 10 parallel sessions plus a commercial space of around 2000 m 2 (incl. walking space). Applications have to be sent to the EMS Secretary by January 31, 2008, according to the stipulations listed in point F.2 of the By-Laws of the Constitutions. The final venue will be decided by the General Council which will meet in Aachen during EMC 2008. 

  • 13th European Microscopy Congress (former EUREM)

    22 to 27 August 2004
    Groenenborger complex – Antwerpen – Belgium

    Owing to the developments in Near East it was agreed during an EMS General Assembly in Lecce, September 2002, that in January and April 2002, the EMS should stepwise decide on a possible change of venue. To all parties involved it was clear that the situation in Jerusalem, where the meeting was planned to be held, was such that there was real doubt that a congress in this city would be successful. The EMS president sent a letter to all European Societies for Microscopy, asking for their help in taking over the work done so far by the Israeli Organizing Committee. The Executive Board of EMS received three proposals and on the 18 th of April, a telephone conference was organised in which all members of the Executive Board participated. After this discussion, the unanimous decision was taken to accept the offer of the Belgian Society to organize EMC 2004 (European Microscopy Congress) in Antwerpen. The date of the Congress has not been changed: August 22-27, 2004. Presently, the International Advisory Board is being composed, and soon the agreement between EMS and the Organising Committee in Antwerpen will be signed. The First Announcement will be distributed at ICEM15 in Durban. We have to thank our Israeli colleagues for all the work they have done in preparation of EMC 2004 and express the hope that peace will be restored in the area soon.
