Microscopy and Microanalysis (M&M) Meeting Update as of April 1, 2021
Due to ongoing health concerns related to the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, global and organizational travel restrictions, and additional concerns shared by the microscopy and microanalysis community in recent surveys, MSA and MAS have decided to cancel the in-person meeting originally scheduled for August 1-5, 2021 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. For the health, safety, and well-being of the entire community, we will convert the M&M 2021 Meeting content into a virtual (completely online) meeting in its place.
MSA/MAS Member volunteers, Association headquarters staff, and the M&M Meeting and Exhibits Management teams are already hard at work addressing the many specifics that would be inherent to this change. Our Program Chairs are working to deliver a spectacular virtual meeting this year featuring a fantastic lineup of plenary speakers, a robust scientific program, and excellent opportunities to interact with exhibitors and colleagues. Details will be communicated as they become available, including firm virtual meeting dates and times, registration information, and more specific content information (if applicable).
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Again, we thank you for your patience, continued support, and understanding in these circumstances. Continue to stay safe and well.
