About the Conference

The International Conference on Electron Microscopy along with the XLII Annual Meeting of the Electron Microscope Society of India (EMSI-2024) will be organized by Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in association with the West Zone Chapter of EMSI during May 16-18, 2024 at Victor Menezes Convention Centre, IIT Bombay, Mumbai. This meeting would be a gathering of large number of eminent research scholars and microscopists across the globe. The conference focuses on study and utilization of various microscopy techniques across the vast research areas. The conference offers an excellent platform to deliberate on recent advances on microscopy at large, and for networking, updates on the latest advancements and direct interactions with experts working on the cutting edge of the technology. The diverse menu of the conference is organized as structured sessions where eminent persons will present their work in specific fields. It also provides opportunity to have live demonstrations of many recent developments. The conference stalls at the technical exhibition will showcase the latest technology and new products in microscopy.


It includes electron microscopy and also other types of microscopies like fluorescence, confocal, STEED, AFM, STM, scanning probe and others. Electron microscopes are used to examine submicron details of the structures, their chemical compositions, atomic arrangements and other crystallographic details with very high spatial resolution. Attached with several complementary probing techniques a modern electron microscope gives such a wealth of information which is unmatched by any other technique. In combination with techniques like small angle scattering and 3D atom probe, electron microscopes provide nearly complete characterization of materials. The present conference, therefore, covers several aspects of electron microscopy and also provides glimpses of other complementary techniques. The conference is divided into two major categories; life and materials sciences. Each category further consists of popular topics which will be organized as structured sessions.
