Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We invite you to join us on August 1-5, 2010 at the Oregon Convention Center in beautiful Portland, Oregon for Microscopy & Microanalysis 2010. Portland, the City of Roses, is a welcoming venue for the meeting, and many of you fondly remember our last visit there in 1999. This year, we will once again welcome the Microscopical Society of Canada/Société de Microscopie du Canada. We are looking forward to another successful joint meeting, following the recent joint meetings in Chicago (2006) and Quebec City (2002). With a wide range of attendees from around the globe, M&M 2010 will be a prime opportunity for you to showcase your research, network with other scientists, learn about the latest technical advances, and contact possible employers and clients. We encourage all of you, whether newcomers or veterans of M&M, to submit an abstract of your work for presentation in Portland.

Microscopy and Microanalysis 2010 promises to be the epitome of scientific diversity, spanning disciplines from the life sciences to the physical sciences, all unified by the tools of our trade. The program committee has developed a strong program highlighting the latest microscopic and microanalytical advances in fields such as nanotechnology, biological sciences, materials science, clinical diagnoses, and metallurgy. Many interdisciplinary symposia have been organized, reflecting the current environment of collaboration between scientists in different disciplines. Again this year, we will kick off the meeting with a plenary session on Monday morning featuring Dr. Mark Welland and highlighting the winners of our major societal awards. The exhibits will demonstrate state-of-the-art equipment, and the vendor tutorials will continue to be a significant part of the meeting. The meeting will also feature "Back to the Basics" tutorials and workshops to be held during the meeting in addition to the traditional Sunday Short Courses.

Attending Microscopy & Microanalysis 2010 will allow you to stay abreast of new technologies, learn new techniques, and see the latest instrumentation. We hope that you will be able to join us in Portland for what is shaping up to be a very exciting and educational meeting.
