The Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group's (EMAG) biennial conference has established a strong reputation as a key event in the calendars of the national and international microscopy communities, since its inaugural meeting in 1946 (then known as the Electron Microscopy Group). It has always sought to capture the latest in the development and applications of electron microscope techniques.
EMAG 2011 will continue this tradition in Birmingham, a city well known for its materials-based industries. The central location of Birmingham means that EMAG 2011 will be easily accessible for day visitors as well as for delegates attending the whole conference and the Advanced School.

A high quality Trade Exhibition is at the heart of a EMAG conference. EMAG 2011 will build on the success of the Exhibition at Sheffield in 2009 with a mixture of exhibits and technical workshops to enable delegates to interact with vendors and witness the latest developments in microscopy and nanotechnology.

The scientific themes of EMAG 2011 will be addressed through invited and contributed oral and poster presentations. One of the principal features of the conference is the opportunity it gives to young researchers to present their work through both the symposia and the poster sessions. There will be prizes for the best student contributions.

The Advanced School on Chemical Nanoanalysis will be held on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 September to enable young researchers to expand their knowledge in a key subject theme of the conference.

The themes of EMAG 2011 will be:
• Quantitative interpretation of electron microscope images and spectra 
• Characterisation of advanced materials 
• New techniques and methods in electron microscopy 

There will be an exciting programme with a mixture of plenary talks by internationally renowned leaders in the field, invited talks in the specialist sessions, together with contributed oral and poster presentations. The scientific sessions will include:
• Nanofabrication and scanning electron microscopy
• Modelling and quantification
• Advances in imaging and spectroscopy techniques
• Applications of high resolution imaging and spectroscopy
• Functional materials
• Nanomaterials
• Structural materials
• Biosciences, biomaterials and soft matter
• Earth and environmental sciences
• In-situ electron microscopy

The conference will open with a welcome reception on the evening of Tuesday 6 September. The main scientific programme will commence on the morning of Wednesday 7 September and will conclude at lunchtime on Friday 9 September.
The conference dinner will be held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on the evening of Thursday 8 September.
An additional Advanced School on Chemical Microanalysis will be held on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 September. Further information about this advanced school will be made available as soon as it is available.
