The annual meeting of the European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI) is an internationally recognised event on light microscopy and a unique blend of lectures and hands-on workshops on the newest microscopy research and techniques aimed at a life sciences audience. In 2019, the 19th edition will take place in Brno, which is the second largest city in the Czech Republic, from June 4-7. The venue of the meeting will be Brno Trade Fairs, a leading exhibition centre surrounded by several hotels, restaurants and bars.
ELMI conferences were established as a unique networking opportunity providing exchange of information between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of microscopy equipment. They have become a regular meeting place of scientists who develop and apply advanced light microscopy in their research, as well as becoming a crucial conference for imaging networks and people working in imaging facilities.
In 2019, the scientific programme will cover a broad range of imaging techniques and applications, including:
• Quantitative phase imaging
• Advanced bioimage analysis
• Correlative light electron microscopy
• Imaging transcription
• Adaptive optics and deep tissue imaging
• Notable new techniques and biophysics
Centred around the plenary scientific lectures on technology development and biological applications in these fields (without parallel lecture sessions), ELMI offers a fantastic opportunity for less experienced users to gain solid knowledge in a range of imaging techniques. It also provides an excellent opportunity for networking with the industry and other devoted microscopists in a strong social format. Expert users will enjoy the hands-on workshops in the latest developing instrumentation, and the chance to gain insight into the next generation of technologies.
