Do not miss your chance to join this great opportunity to learn and network with some of the best and brightest in materials characterization! 

Key Dates

  • Deadline to submit abstracts
  • Saturday, June 30, 2018
  • Announcement of presenters
  • Sunday, July 15, 2018
  • Deadline to register for atomic force microscopy (AFM) short course
  • Tuesday, August 28, 2018

The first day of the symposium (Wednesday, September 19) will be composed of talks and discussions covering areas such as (but not limited to):
