Dear Colleagues, Microscopists, Exhibitors and Sponsors,

We have now opened the Abstract submission and the registration procedures for EMC2016. There are 28 scientific sessions planned within the 3 main symposiums: Life Sciences, Instrumentation and Methods, Materials Science. The co-chairs of these sessions have contacted more than 80 invited speakers on the basis of their propositions and of suggestions from the EMC2016 Committees. We are also honoured that 5 internationally recognized scientists have already accepted to attend the conference and give plenary lectures. The programme will be completed by the technical exhibit; this event should be very successful according to the enthusiastic participation of our partners.

In parallel to this, EMC2016 will host the SCUR annual meeting and several specific workshops and round tables.
We also respect the tradition of the EMC Conference series by proposing pre-congress training sessions, which will be organised by research teams from Lyon, Grenoble and St-Etienne with the participation of well-recognized experts attending the Conference.
Last but not least, we aim at promoting the participation of Young Scientists, and EMC2016 is willing to offer scholarships to our younger colleagues.
Updates of the programme and further information about all EMC2016 activities will be continually posted on the website. Feel free to contact us or our PCO partner for any additional details.

Hoping very sincerely to meet you in the beautiful city of Lyon next August!


Dr. Thierry EPICIER
Conference President
For all EMC2016 Committees.
