The annual Meeting of the European Light Microscopy Initiative (ELMI) is an internationally recognized meeting on light microscopy and a unique blend of lectures and hands-on workshops on the newest microscopy research and techniques aimed at a life sciences audience. In 2019 it will take place in Brno, which is the second largest city in the Czech Republic with many historical sights and attractive natural environment for living, studying, business and recreation. The venue of the meeting will be Brno Trade Fairs, Czech leading exhibition center surrounded by several hotels, restaurants and bars. The venue is close to the city center, city park and sports area.
ELMI conferences were established as a unique networking opportunity providing exchange of information between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of microscopy equipment. They have become a regular meeting place of scientists who develop and apply advanced light microscopy in their research, as well as becoming a crucial conference for imaging networks and people working in imaging facilities.
In 2019, the scientific program will cover a broad range of imaging techniques and applications, including:
- Quantitative phase imaging
- Advanced bioimage analysis
- Correlative light electron microscopy
- Imaging transcription
- Adaptive optics and deep tissue imaging
- Notable new techniques and biophysics
Centered around the plenary scientific lectures on technology development and biological applications in these fields (without parallel lecture sessions), ELMI offers a fantastic opportunity for less experienced users to gain solid knowledge in a range of imaging techniques. It also provides an excellent opportunity for networking with the industry and other devoted microscopists in a strong social format. Expert users will enjoy the hands-on workshops in the latest developing instrumentation, and the chance to gain insight into the next generation of technologies.
