  RMS Scientific Imaging Competition 2023: Almost 200 submissions received!

Deluge of entries ensures one of the Society’s biggest and best ever competitions. This year’s RMS Scientific Imaging Competition has triggered a fantastic response from microscopists around the world – with 198 images submitted across seven different award categories. With the submissions deadline now expired, the competition judges have been left with the tricky task of whittling down a shortlist of images to be displayed at mmc2023, where the final decisions on the winners will be made...


  Shortlist finalised for RMS Scientific Imaging Competition

A shortlist of eye-catching images and videos has been drawn up for the RMS Scientific Imaging Competition – featuring as part of mmc2021. As a ‘sneak preview’, the RMS has put together a collage of all the shortlisted entries across the different categories (excluding video entries) ahead of mmc2021. The images and videos will be uploaded to an online gallery available to view from the start of the event...


  Linkam release the RH95 Relative Humidity Control unit for use in conjunction with Linkam

Linkam Scientific Instruments, have announced the launch of a new relative humidity controller for their range of temperature stages used for materials, pharmaceuticals and foods testing. The unit will make its debut at mmc2015, the largest European microscopy event of the year.

The new Linkam RH95 relative humidity controller The new RH95 Relative Humidity Controller is the latest addition to provide precise environmental sample control to Linkam’s range of temperature stages. It has been developed based on the feedback of many Linkam users in the materials, foods and pharmaceutical industries where humidity plays an important role in product development, manufacture and even storage. It will be shown on stand number 411 at mmc2015, the biennial conference and exhibition organised by the Royal Microscopical Society.


  Record number of delegates and visitors flock to the 15th European Microscopy Congress

The 15th European Microscopy Congress – emc2012 - held at Manchester Central in September, was the largest yet in the series. It attracted 1,714 registered Conference Delegates. This is a 30% increase on 2008

Professor Tony Wilson giving the opening Plenary Lecture to a packed theatreThe record breaking numbers were drawn by eight parallel conference sessions that embraced the life and physical sciences, and delivered a balanced programme of optical and electron microscopy. This breadth made emc2012 the most inclusive event yet. Professor Tony Wilson, President of the Royal Microscopical Society and Vice Chair of the Congress, said, “The conference sessions have provided an unparalleled opportunity for delegates to immerse themselves in their own area of interest, and also to witness new techniques and tools that might benefit their current work, or feature in their future activities.”...


  European Microscopy Congress The Scientific Programme for emc2012 comprises eight parallel sessions with the Life Sciences featuring more strongly than ever before.

European Microscopy Congress The Scientific Programme for the 15th European Microscopy Congress includes six plenary talks, 123 invited speakers and 330 oral presentations spread across 72 sessions that embrace light and electron microscopy.
The Congress has built its reputation on the Physical Sciences, but recent conferences have included sessions on the Life Sciences...

  Nobel Prize Winner to Speak at European Microscopy Congress The 15th European Microscopy Congress Professor Daniel Shechtman has been confirmed as a Plenary Speaker at the 15th European Microscopy Congress (emc2012) in Manchester in September 2012. Professor Shechtman was awarded this year's Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his discovery of "quasicrystals" which showed that the atoms in a crystal could be packed in an unrepeatable pattern. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said that the discovery in 1982 was initially "extremely controversial," but that it had "fundamentally changed the way chemists look at solid matter"...


  MICROSCIENCE 2010 MICROSCIENCE 2010, the Royal Microscopical Society's flagship meeting held at ExCeL London at the end of June, attracted 519 conference delegates - the first time that the 500-barrier has been broken. And, the overall visitor-target of 2,000 was also reached.
