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

"Microscopy of Tomorrow's Industrial Materials"

to be held between October 3rd and October 8th, 2005 at Berlin-Adlershof, Germany. 


Aims and Scope

The International Centre celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2005. The autumn school provides a platform for bringing together especially younger scientists (PhD students, Post docs) from Middle/ Eastern and Western Europe. Young scientists are therefore encouraged to apply to participate in this school. The participants will have the opportunity to listen to talks of internationally renowned scientists and to have lively discussions with them. Furthermore, the young scientists are encouraged to present their own work in the form of posters during the school. Extended abstracts will be published on the website of the school.

The school is open for all people interested in advanced materials development. 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.
