4th ELECMI International Workshop

ELECMI is the Spanish Infrastructure for Electron Microscopy of Materials, a Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructure (ICTS) within the current Map of National Facilities in Spain.

After the previous editions in the nodes of Zaragoza (2017, 2018) and Madrid (2019), this 4th ELECMI International Workshop is to be held in the node of Barcelona at the Scientific and Technological Centers of the Universitat de Barcelona (CCiTUB).

The workshop will be an in-person meeting for all researchers interested in electron and scanning probe microscopy techniques. Reputed international speakers and researchers from ELECMI, working at the forefront of technical and methodological developments in the field, will present their latest results aiming to illustrate the potential of these microscopy techniques as an essential tool for both materials and soft matter characterisation at ultimate spatial, energy or time resolutions.

Attendance to this workshop is free of charge, but registration is mandatory to help organizers with the logistics.
