03 - 06 July 2017, Manchester, UK

Welcome Drinks Reception
Monday 3 July, Manchester Central

We would like to invite you to join us in celebrating the opening of mmc2017. Following the first two Plenary Lectures of the conference, this informal drinks reception in the foyer of Manchester Central will give you the chance to catch up with old contacts and make new ones for the conference. This reception has been sponsored by Microscopy & Analysis.

Poster Sessions
Tuesday 4 July, Wednesday 5 July, Thursday 6 July, mmc2017 Exhibition Hall

Once the conference sessions have finished for the afternoon, the daily poster sessions allow you to browse the mmc2017 Poster Village and discuss the research with the authors. The mmc2017 Poster Village will house over 100 posters incorporating a wide range of microscopy techniques in both life and physical sciences.

EMAG Dinner
Tuesday 4 July, No1 Watson Street

This buffet style dinner exclusively for EMAG 2017 delegates is a great opportunity to continue the discussions from the day with those working in the same field.

Frontiers in Bioimaging Dinner

This barbecue-style buffet dinner, exclusively for Frontiers in Bioimaging delegates, allows you to network with others working in imaging in life sciences and discuss the day's conference sessions.

SPM Dinner

Exclusively for SPM meeting delegates, catch up with the scanning probe microscopy community over this sit down dinner.

mmc2017 Congress Banquet
Wednesday 5 July, The Principal Hotel, Manchester

The mmc2017 Congress Banquet always proves to be a great night. The pre-dinner drinks and the sit down meal allow for cross-disciplinary networking amongst conference delegates and company representatives in a relaxed atmosphere. For those opting for a late night, after dinner the music starts and there's the chance to let your hair down after a busy few days at the Congress. The Congress Banquet and the preceding drinks reception have been sponsored by JEOL.

Closing Drinks Reception
Thursday 6 July, Manchester Central

Finish your mmc2017 visit in style and join us for farewell drinks in the foyer of Manchester Central at the end of the conference. Say goodbye to mmc2017 and look ahead to mmc2019...
