Virtual SCANDEM 2022, 20-22 June 2022, Tampere, Finland

The annual SCANDEM meeting covers all aspects related to microscopy and the sessions are divided to life and material sciences. The program has live presentations in plenary and parallel sessions in addition to pre-recorded poster presentations. Moreover, the Company Webinar Day will be arranged on June 22.

The Scandem 2022 is organized by Tampere Microscopy Center. It is free of charge and the participation link will be sent for the registered participants. The abstract deadline is April 1st 2022. For more information, visit the conference webpage: https://events.tuni.fi/scandem2022

Virtual SCANDEM 2021, 17 June 2021, Oslo, Norway

SCANDEM goes virtual 17th of June 2021 from Oslo!

We invite you to take part in the SCANDEM 2021 meeting. It will for the first time be held fully digitally and is free of charge.

In the tradition of SCANDEM meetings, contributions from both life and material sciences are welcome. The program will have live presentations in plenary and parallel sessions in addition to links to pre-recorded presentations of «posters».

We hope you will be able to join us online, to continue SCANDEMs long tradition in facilitating scientific collaboration between Nordic research institutions. We particularly encourage young members of the research communities to take part, sharing their results and methodologies in the friendly atmosphere of SCANDEM.

5th Quantitative Electron Microscopy school, 9-21 May 2021, Port-Bacarès, France

QEM2021 is the 5th edition of the very successful QEM (Quantative Electron Microscopy) school. It is a 2 weeks school centered around advanced electron microscopy techniques. This edition will be held in Port-Bacarès in the south of France at 350 meter from the Mediterranean Sea from the 9th to the 21st of May 2021.

Participants will learn from renowned experts about for example quantitative crystallography, tomography, electron energy-loss spectroscopy and electron holography. They will put in practice these lectures in form of practical exercises also lead by renowned scientists. The participants will also be able to test a JEOL F2 TEM install for the all duration of the school on their own samples. This school is an opportunity for PhD students and post-docs to develop their skills in transmission electron microscopy and learn how to get the best of it.

Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment, 10-15 July, 2020, Daresbury, U.K.

The 8th SuperSTEM Summer School on “Advanced Topics in Aberration-Corrected STEM: Theory meets Experiment”, will be held at the SuperSTEM Laboratory, in Daresbury, U.K., between the 10th - 15th of July 2020.

The 2020 Summer School builds on the established series of schools and workshops held at SuperSTEM every two years. Following recent advances in instrumentation, this year’s school will address advanced topics in Cs-corrected STEM and spectroscopy techniques and introduce theoretical methodologies & computational tools necessary to rationalize and simulate experimental findings.

Topics covered:

  • principles of aberration diagnosis & correction
  • advanced imaging theory
  • EELS & EDX spectroscopy
  • quantitative image analysis and simulations
  • Introduction to DFT and band structure calculations.

The lectures will be complemented by practicals in small groups, including hands on operation of the SuperSTEM instruments and introduction to theoretical calculations and EELS simulations using CASTEP.

The lectures are intended for PhD students, post-doctoral researchers as well as academics and professionals that have an existing background in electron microscopy or relevant theoretical background.

Please note that due to a limited number of available places a two-stage registration process will be followed.
