Satellite Meetings & Workshops

The Microscience Microscopy Congress brings together a number of smaller meetings, allowing you to meet and discuss with colleagues working in your field as well as with cross-disciplinary peers, all at the same event.

As part of mmc2019 these will include:

BioImagingUK Meeting - Monday 1 July

Scientific Organiser: Prof. Maddy Parsons, Kings College London

This meeting will provide an opportunity for the UK Bioimaging community to discuss priorities and strategies in training, development, careers and ways to share knowledge across different disciplines. The session will consist of short talks from members of the BioImagingUK organising committee, BBSRC, and industrial/institute collaboration partners (Royce, RFI, Faraday) to update on progress, new opportunities and initiatives. There will be interactive Q+A sessions to encourage discussion and enable emerging priorities and ideas to be highlighted. The meeting is open to everyone with an interest in bioimaging.

You can choose to attend this meeting during the mmc2019 registration process.

Early Career Pre-Congress Symposium - Monday 1 July

Scientific Organiser: Rebecca Thompson, University of Leeds

The RMS Early Career Pre-Congress Symposium is an event for early career microscopists (students and post docs) to network and present their work ahead of the main mmc conference. We will be accepting abstracts from early career researchers to present their research, with a focus on introducing the microscopy techniques used in their work. A prize for the best early career talk will be presented by Michelle Peckham, President of the RMS.

The meeting will also include a keynote lecture (TBC), an introduction to the newly-formed RMS student council, and a networking activity. Overall this will be a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow microscopists ahead of mmc2019, and we hope to see you there.

You can choose to attend this meeting during the mmc2019 registration process.

Super-resolution Workshop - Friday 5 July

Scientific Organiser: Prof. Michelle Peckham, University of Leeds

Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy with lots of time for discussion, this year the workshop will focus on the topic of labelling.  Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenging techniques, and give an insight into future potential developments.

To register for this workshop please visit the event page on the RMS website.
