The objective is to bring together (inter)national researchers in the field of microscopy, including microscopy development and microscopy-based research in material science and life science. This, with the primary aim of exchanging insights in established and novel imaging methodologies between peers. Top speakers will highlight the key trends that enable quantitative, multi-parametric assessment of a variety of samples with the spectrum of microscopy techniques (including light, electron and atomic force microscopy, etc.). By also providing a forum to interdisciplinary researchers that work at the interface of material science and life science, we hope to bring the two communities closer together and spark new, original collaborations.
