September 10–15, 2017
International Frontiers of Electron Microscopy in Materials Science (FEMMS 2017)
Johannesburg, South Africa

The next International Frontiers of Electron Microscopy in Materials Science (FEMMS 2017) meeting, will be taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa, Sept. 10 – 15, 2017. FEMMS sessions cover Instrumentation, Theory, Spectroscopy, Operando Microscopy, Correlative Microscopy, Low-dose and EM Tomography, EM & Materials, and High Time-Resolved Microscopy. 40 invited speakers and a distinguished lecture by Prof. Steve Pennycook will cover the latest developments in these fields . The event is attended by approximately 100-140 participants from around the world in an informal setting and is aimed at promoting scientific discussions and cross-fertilization of ideas from complementary techniques. Registration will open in March 2017. More information can be found at the conference website: Scientific and Local Host Committee Chair: Alexander Ziegler.

September 13-15, 2017
Single Molecule Workshop 2017
Berlin, DE

PicoQuant's yearly organized Single Molecule Workshop brings together users and developers from diverse fields such as Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. The workshop provides an interdisciplinary platform for experienced and young scientists to share their research in ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level and beyond the classical diffraction limit. Eight distinguished researchers, including Nobel laureate W. E. Moerner, will present their recent work on ultrasensitive spectroscopy in a series of invited talks. The workshop program is rounded out by contributed presentations as well as a poster session. A welcome reception and workshop dinner provide participants with the opportunity for in-depth discussions between invited speakers and other attendees. This year’s invited speakers are Nobel laureate W. E. Moerner, Madhavi Krishnan, Dagmar Klostermeier, Achilles Kapanidis, Niek van Hulst, Enrico Gratton, Bianxiao Cui, and Julie S. Biteen. Excerpt of topics: - Single molecule detection techniques, such as confocal fluorescence microscopy, widefield fluorescence microscopy, Scanning Nearfield Optical Microscopy (SNOM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Raman scattering - High-resolution microscopy techniques, such as Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED), Localization microscopy (PALM, STORM, dSTORM, GSDIM), Fluctuation microscopy (SOFI) - Other applications in current biological, biophysical and biochemical research projects.

September 25-29, 2017
Fourteenth Congress of the Inter-American Committee of Microscopy Societies
Varadero Beach, Cuba

The Fourteenth Congress of the Inter-American Committee of Microscopy Societies CIASEM 2017 will be held in Varadero Beach, Cuba, from 25 to 29 September 2017 and is organized by the Cuban Society of Microscopy. This is the second time that our society organizes a congress CIASEM. Sponsored by the Cuban Society of Morphological Sciences, CIASEM 2017 is the result of the efforts of our national Organizing Committee and together with our excellent team of international scientific advisors, to provide us with a very exciting Scientific Program, covering developments and applications of Microscopy in the themes of Instrumentation and Analysis, Materials Sciences, Biological Sciences and Teaching Morphological Sciences. The Cuban Society of Microscopy is inserted into the Cuban Society of Morphological Sciences, and belongs to CIASEM since 1997. We are also a member of IFSM (International Federation of Societies of Microscopy). The memories of these events will be published in Acta Microscopic., Vol. 26, Supp. A, 2017.

November 13-14, 2017
Pharmaceutical Microbiology East Coast 2017
Iselin, NJ

This year's conference will feature a new speaker line-up from the US, expanding the networking opportunities to an international reach. Including industry relevant presentations. Date and time: Starts on Monday November 13, 2017 at 8:30 am (ends Tuesday November 14, 2017 at 5:00 pm)


February 27 - March 2, 2018
International Conference On Nanoscopy (ICON 2018)
Beilefeld, Germany

Super-resolution imaging methods now can provide spatial resolution that is well below the diffraction limit approaching virtually molecular resolution. They can be applied to biological samples and provide new and exciting views on the structural organization of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on wide timescales. These revolutionary developments come with novel requirements for fluorescent probes, labeling techniques, and data interpretation strategies. Researchers from across the scientific spectrum are involved in designing improved tools and solving previously intractable problems using super-resolution techniques. We invite you to attend the '2nd International Conference On Nanoscopy 2018', which will uniquely focus exclusively on this topic. Held in Bielefeld, Germany from 27 Feb-02 March 2018, it will bring together an international group of experts to discuss the latest advances and future directions in the field. Thomas Huser Conference Chair, University of Bielefeld, Germany INVITED SPEAKERS KEYNOTES: W. E. Moerner (USA, 2014 Nobel laureate), Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz (USA), Alberto Diaspro (Italy) Hari Schroff (USA), Stefan Jakobs (Germany), Maxime Dahan (France), Sara Abrahamsson (USA), Jörg Enderlein (Germany), Melike Lakadamyali (Spain), Peter Dedecker (Belgium), Ulrike Endesfelder (Germany), Theo Lasser (Switzerland), Achillefs Kapanidis (UK), Mike Heilemann (Germany), Mark Schüttpelz (Germany), Deblina Sarkar (USA) AND 17 speaking opportunities for participants
