Congress details

Welcome note

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to officially invite you to participate in the Microscopy Conference 2021 (MC2021), held in Vienna, Austria, from August 22 to 26, 2021. After the very successful preceding meetings MC2009 in Graz and MC2013 in Regensburg, MC2021 will be a combined conference of Dreiländertagung and Multinational Congress on Microscopy again. The conference will be jointly organised by ten microscopy societies from 11 countries (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Turkey).

The MC2021 aims at bringing together leading experts and emerging young researchers, highlighting new developments in instrumentation and methods as well as providing a forum for new directions in the field of life or materials sciences. It will be an EMS extension, and it will focus especially on young scientists by providing very affordable fees. We are confident that at least 1,300 participants from all over Europe and overseas will attend the conference and guarantee a major scientific exchange.

The scientific programme will consist of plenary talks on important current topics. Latest developments in the fields of instrumentation and methods, materials science and life science will be highlighted by invited talks and also oral and poster presentations submitted. In addition to the scientific programme, workshops, an industrial exhibition, a conference dinner and award ceremonies in conjunction with award lectures will complement the programme.

The venue of MC2021 is the Congress Center Messe Wien, next to the Viennese Prater and within a 7-minute ride to the city center. The MC2021 will host a large exhibition, which aims to show the latest equipment from the manufacturers of all different kinds of microscopy and microscopy techniques, along with suppliers of consumables and accessories as well as publishers in the field. The exhibition will be embedded within the poster and catering area and will become an integral part of the conference.

Our goal is to organise a memorable microscopy event that gives you the opportunity of gathering information in science, networking and even perhaps enjoy some culture. We cordially welcome you to Vienna and to the MC2021!
