16th Multinational Congress on Microscopy [4 - 9 September 2022]


Dear colleagues, It is our pleasure to invite you to the 16th Multinational Congress on Microscopy. The congress is scheduled for September 4th-9th 2022 in Brno, the Czech Republic. Brno is a beautiful city in Central Europe and offers modern facilities for international conferences, such as the Best Western Premier Hotel International Brno – the congress venue. Moreover, Brno is an ideal place for electron microscopy events not only due to a long tradition in development and production of microscopic instruments, but also due to numerous universities and research centres performing great science, usually in close connection with microscopic techniques. This unique, direct and intensive network of collaborations between the commercial sphere and academia resulted in a highly efficient and worldwide successul electron microscope ecosystem. 16th MCM will be a key microscopic event in the Central European region. The quality of scientific content will be ensured by leading scientists from across Europe. The accessibility for students will be supported by providing affordable conference fees. We believe that the 16th MCM in Brno will offer an excellent opportunity to present new scientific results, ideas and products in all fields of microscopy. Last but not the least, we hope that the enjoyable atmosphere of the microscopy-rich city with numerous historical monuments and specific nightlife will stimulate also less formal personal meetings and collaborations. We are looking forward to see you at the 16th MCM!
