HOME MEETINGS Associated Meetings Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM)

03 - 06 July 2017, Manchester, UK

The annual Scanning Probe Microscopy meeting will be held during mmc2017. This meeting is unmissable for anyone using SPM in their work or studies and will cover a wide range of topics associated with SPM including main techniques such as atomic force microscopy and scanning tunnelling microscopy as well as more specialised versions.

The SPM Conference Sessions at mmc2017 are:

Structures, Interfaces and Mechanics in Life and Health with AFM

Organiser: Prof Sonia Contera, Oxford University, UK

Frontiers of Scanning Probe Microscopy

Organiser: Dr Nic Mullin, University of Sheffield

SPM nano-mapping of materials properties

Organiser: Prof Oleg Kolosov, Lancaster University, UK
This session is generously sponsored by QuantiHeat

High resolution SPM

Organiser: Dr Stephanie Allen, University of Nottingham, UK

The SPM Session Poster prizes are generously sponsored by Park Systems Europe GmbH

The Pre-Congress Workshop Practical Tips for Atomic Force Microscopy Imaging and Spectroscopy will take place on Monday 3 July and will provide an advanced in depth introduction to scanning probe microscopy at a level suitable for graduate students who have started using or developing SPM in their own research, and for experienced electron and optical microscopists who would like to know how they could use SPM

There will be an exclusive dinner organised for SPM session attendees on Tuesday 4 July at Don Giovannis. This will be an ideal opportunity to network, renew old contacts and create some new ones.

When you register for the mmc2017 conference, you can also add the AFM pre-congress workshop and the SPM Dinner to your booking.

Previous events

mmc2017 is the latest in an impressive list of events dating back to the 1960s starting with the Micro conference and exhibition series. This later became MicroScience which grew ever-bigger until 2010. The RMS hosted the European Microscopy Congress in 2012 which was the catalyst for the current Microscience Microscopy Congress series.
