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

5th Workshop On TEM With In Situ Irradiation (WOTWISI-5)
Huddersfield, United Kingdom

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with in situ irradiation using ions and/or electrons is a powerful technique allowing the direct observation of the dynamic microstructural evolution of radiation damage. The WOTWISI series brings together the users and operators of these facilities to share the latest scientific results and techniques in this highly specialised field. Abstracts are invited on the application of TEM with in situ irradiation in fields including nuclear energy, nanostructures, semiconductors and materials in extraterrestrial environments. We also welcome technical talks on the design and construction of transmission electron microscopes with in situ irradiation facilities and their combination with other complimentary in situ environments and characterisation techniques.
