"We are really excited about the 2010 programme," says Dr Debbie Stokes, the RMS Honorary Secretary for Physical Science and Co-Chair of the Organising Committee. "It is very inclusive and aims to strike a balance between life and materials science, and between electron and light microscopy. Hence it gives everybody involved in microscopy the opportunity to showcase their work."
The conference comprises three parallel Themes – Life, Materials and, New Techniques and Frontiers – comprising a total of eighteen symposia that reflect the breadth of microscopical science.
“There really is something for everybody,” says Dr Paul Monaghan, President of the RMS and a member of the Organising Committee, “And, with such an impressive line-up of speakers – Lord Winston is giving the opening plenary lecture – MICROSCIENCE 2010 offers a great forum in which to present your work. We are anticipating a high number of submissions and I know that the symposia organisers are looking forward to receiving their first batches of abstracts.”
Dr Stokes – who is organising one of the symposia - agrees with Paul. “Whilst it can be daunting to receive a large number of scripts, there is always a sense of anticipation that comes with them. You want to put together a great session, so you are on the look out for those gems that will help you to achieve this, and I am sure that this year we will get them.”
Each symposium will include invited and submitted talks and poster presentations, and will run alongside Europe’s largest exhibition for microscopy and imaging.
