7th biennial SuperSTEM Summer School, 29 June - 4 July, 2018, Daresbury, UK

SuperSTEM is proud to announce its 7th SuperSTEM summer school, running from 29 June to 3 July 2018 at the SciTech Daresbury campus, UK. Website: https://www.superstem.org/school2018

This year's focus is "Cs-corrected STEM and Spectroscopy: Theory meets Experiment".

The application for the summer school is now open and runs until 30/3/18. Selected participants will be able to register between 5 April and 20 April 2018. For more details about the application process, please visit the SuperSTEM webpage: https://www.superstem.org/school2018

TAILOR Workshop 2018, June 11-14, 2018, Ystad, Sweden

The registration and abstract submission for the 4th TAILOR workshop "Tailored surfaces in operando conditions - a Marcus Wallenberg symposium", to be held in Ystad Saltsjöbad, Sweden, from June 11th-14th, 2018, is now open.

Please click on the link below for further information, abstract submission and registration: http://tailor18.sljus.lu.se

Abstract submission deadline: March 16th
Response to abstracts: April 18th
Registration and payment deadline: May 1st

As in previous editions, this workshop will be devoted to recent advances in operando investigation of reactivity at surfaces from both experimental and theoretical approaches. In the past 40 years, a number of experimental techniques (electron, photon, or scanning probe based), as well as theoretical methods, have been refined and adapted to allow operando studies. The TAILOR workshop aims at bringing together excellent scientists and students from those different communities, in an effort to promote exchange, communication and collaboration around this central idea: Studying well defined surfaces and interfaces under operando conditions.

Confirmed invited speakers:
Anders Nilsson, Stockholm University, Sweden
Junji Nakamura, University of Tsukuba, Japan
Sarah Haigh, University of Manchester, UK
Irene Groot, Leiden University, The Netherlands
Maria Veronica Ganduglia-Pirovano, Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry, Spain
Ian Robinson, Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA
Stig Helveg, Haldor Topsøe, Denmark

The workshop include a visit to the new MAX IV synchrotron and a guided tour to Transmission Electron Microscopes at Lund University.

Advanced TEM workshop, June 12-14, 2017, Trondheim, Norway

Advanced TEM workshop is organized at NTNU in Trondheim 12-14 June 2017. More information available at the workshop website: http://www.ntnu.edu/web/temgemini/diffraction2017

SCANDEM2018, June 25-28, 2018, Lyngby, Denmark

We are pleased to announce the 69th Annual Conference of the Nordic Microscopy Society (SCANDEM2018) organized to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of papers, discussion and general exchange of knowledge on electron microscopy.

Date: 25-28 June 2018 (Date of arrival: June 24 for pre-conference workshops)

Venue: Technical University of Denmark (Anker Engelunds Vej 1, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark)

Homepage of the meeting: http://scandem2018.com

Registration: Registration will open after 15 February, 2018 on the Registration page.

Discount for students and fresh PhD's: We are making an effort to secure funds to provide a discount from the registration fee for a limited number of students and fresh PhD's. Unfortunately, it may happen that these funds only arrive so late, if at all, that this discount will be paid off as a refund at or after the conference. Please let us know on the registration form if you intend to apply for such a discount.

Highlights of the scientific program: The main topics will be: In Situ Electron Microscopy, Electron Spectroscopy, X-ray microscopy, Scanning Probe Microscopy, Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy, and Image and Data analysis. In addition, we are working on sessions organized by Danish Bioimaging Network.
DTU’s Center for Electron Nanoscopy will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary in conjunction with the conference.

Plenary speakers:

  • Ib Chorkendorff (DTU Fysik, DTU, Denmark): Catalysis, past present and future
  • Lone Gram (DTU Bioengineering, DTU, Denmark): Visualizing bacteria and the behavior
