EMC 2020

EMC 2020 is the European Microscopy Congress, a scientific conference hosted by Scandem on 23-28 August 2020 at The Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark. The event is organised by the Royal Microscopical Society with the support of the EMS and IFSM.

There will be a large exhibition and a conference with at least 6-8 parallel sessions each day. The programme will cover a wide and varied range of topics, aiming to interest anyone whose work or studies are related to microscopy.

Conference Themes

  • Phase sensitive methods with photons and electrons
  • Imaging quantum phenomena
  • Live and fast super-resolution – frontiers in imaging of ultra-fast processes
  • Artificial intelligence in big data analysis, and computational microscopy
  • Cutting edge advanced sample preparation
  • The lab in the microscope: in situ, in vivo, in operando, and multi-modal microscopy.

Plenary Speakers

  • Moritz Helmstaedter (Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, DE)
  • Carolynn Larabell (University of California, San Francisco, US)
  • John Rodenburg (University of Sheffield, UK)
  • Claus Ropers (University of Göttingen, DE)
  • Frances Ross (MIT, US)
  • Roland Wiesendanger (University of Hamburg, DE)

Present Your Research

Contributions to the programme are welcome from scientists from all around the world. The conference aims to present the latest research in life sciences, physical sciences and engineering in all microscopy and imaging techniques. Submissions are welcome from students, early career and established researchers.
