The International Centre of Advanced Materials Science and Electron Microscopy is announcing the International Autumn School on 

"Emerging Microscopy for Advanced Materials Development Imaging and Spectroscopy on Atomic Scale"

to be held between October 3rd and October 7th, 2004 at Berlin-Adlershof, Germany.

Aim and Scope

This annual school is organized in order to bring together especially younger scientists (PhD students, PostDocs) from Middle/Eastern and Western Europe. They are encouraged to apply for taking part in this school. The participants have the opportunity to listen to talks of internationally renowned scientists and to lively discuss with them. Moreover, the young scientists are strongly encouraged to present their own work in form of posters during the school.  

The school is open for all people interested in nanostructured materials. Attendees need not necessarily be electron microscopists. 

For more than 20 years autumn schools on electron microscopy have been traditionally organized by the Institute of Solid State Physics and Electron Microscopy in Halle, which became the Max Planck Institute (MPI) of Microstructure Physics whose International Centre of Electron Microscopy was extended to the International Centre of Materials Science and Electron Microscopy in 1996. Since 1996, the autumn schools have been organised alternately in Halle at the MPI and in Berlin at the Fritz Haber Institute. In 2002 the responsibility for the organization of the school moved to the Humboldt University of Berlin and, in particular, to the Chair of Crystallography of the Institute of Physics.
