Welcome Message

Welcome in Reims …or almost !

After the success of its previous conferences (Bordeaux, Poitiers..), the French Microscopy Society (SFµ) has chosen Reims for this seventeenth edition. Unfortunately, health conditions at the beginning of the year forced us to make major changes in organizational arrangements and move from a face to face organization to an online meeting. Thanks to our technical collaboration with the “MCO Congrès” company, we are however proud to propose a conference with a program of a high scientific quality.

The field of microscopy and imaging in general is rapidly evolving and is increasingly contributing to the knowledge and characterization of matter of all form. This conference will consist of twelve symposia : four symposia in life sciences, four symposia in material sciences and four joint or multidisciplinary symposia. There will also be poster sessions for the most complete and open scientific exchange. This conference will also include the General Assembly and traditional awards (Favard, Castaing , honorary member) that are a highlight of the life of the association.

You will also find on our web platform, the latest developments and innovations of our industrial partners who have agreed to continue to support us despite this change in format. Thanks to them.

The last French Microscopy Society congress organized in Reims was in 1982. It was another time more conducive to conviviality than this year but we hope that the scientific quality will still make this conference a success.

We wish you an excellent conference.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Jean MICHEL
