3D Microscopy, taking place from March 5-8, 2012 in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, is an international symposium focused on 3D imaging and spectroscopy in science. The objective of this symposium is to create a forum for researchers with different expertise and scientific interests to present their knowhow and the techniques they use to answer their scientific questions. Methods using three-dimensional imaging and spectroscopy to retrieve data in volume will be discussed, whether “light”, x-rays or electrons are used. The conference contains plenary talks and sessions with invited and contributed talks and poster sessions

1)      3D CLSM and light microscopy
2)      Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy CLEM
3)     3D X-ray microscopy and tomography
4)     3D FIB/SEM or serial sectioning blockface tomography
5)/6) image processing and hands-on evening image processing workshop
7)     TEM Tomography in materials science and life Science
8)     serial section TEM and SEM
9)     time resolved microscopy
10)  Ultra high resolution Tomography, TEM & atom probe


The conference starts Monday afternon and finishes Thursday at noon.
The registration fee includes accomodation and all meals.
