IOP EMAG 2017 Logo

Organised by the Institute of Physics's Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group (EMAG), the 2017 EMAG conference will be part of mmc2017.

Inkeeping with the established EMAG traditions, EMAG 2017 will include

  • Three days of talks each with two parallel sessions covering various electron microscopy themes in the life and physical sciences.
  • Lively poster sessions.
  • Published proceedings with full papers peer reviewed during the meeting.
  • An impressive list of world class EMAG invited speakers.
  • Plenty of social activities with opportunities to catch up with old friends and to make new ones.

But by being a part of mmc2017, EMAG delegates can enjoy:

  • A larger than usual trade exhibition of microscopy and imaging equipment, with an expected one hundred companies demonstrating the widest range of equipment and consumables.
  • Benefit from the opportunities for interaction and cross disciplinary discussions with participants from other complementary meetings occurring simultaneously in the same venue including Scanning Probe Microscopy and BioImaging UK.
  • Links with more workshops and training events than were possible with a stand-alone EMAG, as well as opportunities for participants to contribute to the RMS International Scientific Imaging Competitions.

Abstract Submission for EMAG 2017 is now open and will close on 3 March. View the 2017 list of keywords below.

By choosing to register for EMAG 2017 and having your abstract accepted you will have the opportunity to submit a paper (4 pages) that will be peer reviewed (during the conference) and will be published in an Open Access conference proceedings. You will also receive EMAG lunch vouchers and have the opportunity to attend the EMAG evening social event on the Tuesday night, specifically for EMAG delegates.

The conference proceedings will be published by IOP Publishing in Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), which is indexed in Web of Science and other online article databases; each article will be peer reviewed during the conference and will benefit from a unique DOI. The submission deadline for full (4 page) submitted papers will be just before the conference on 26 June 2017, with more details being provided to authors on notification of abstract acceptance.

The published proceedings will be a great opportunity to showcase the quality and range of research being presented at the conference as well as promote the event to a wider international audience. The title of the paper and author list does not have to be identical to the oral or poster contribution. Online publication of the conference proceedings is expected to be within 3 months of the conference. View an example of previous EMAG Proceedings.

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.
