Sign up now for mmc2019 Pre-Congress Workshops

Learn the tips and techniques to help with your research - and get your mmc2019 off to a flying start!

Heading to mmc2019? – then why not kick-start your experience by booking onto one of our fantastic Pre-Congress Workshops


There are still places available at our three scheduled workshops, taking place from 1.30pm – 4.30pm on Monday 1 July in Manchester Central.


Attending the workshops is a great way to learn the most up-to-date tips and techniques to help with your research. It’s the ideal way to get started at mmc2019, leading straight into the Plenary lectures later in the afternoon, followed by the Welcome Drinks Reception.


You can add a workshop to your schedule when registering to attend.



Workshop summary:


  • ImageJ Workshop

Scientific Organiser: Dr Kees Straatman

ImageJ is a powerful public domain image processing and analysis program written in Java, freely available for download from the internet. Fiji is an ImageJ distribution focussed on the visualisation and analysis of microscope images in 2D, 3D, 4D and 5D. This workshop will give a brief introductions on the use of ImageJ/Fiji and will account for all learning styles as a mix of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on sessions. Please bring your own fully charged laptop with Fiji installed.


  • SPM Workshop

Scientific Organisers: Professor Sonia Contera, Dr Charles Clifford & Dr Oleg Kolosov

This workshop will provide an advanced in depth introduction to scanning probe microscopy at a level suitable for graduate students who have started using or developing SPM in their own research, and for experienced electron and optical microscopists who would like to know how they could use SPM.


  • EMAG Workshop - Deep Learning

Scientific Organiser: Dr Donald MacLaren

With recent advances in detector and camera technologies, the rapid acquisition of images, diffraction patterns or spectroscopic signals is propelling advanced electron microscopy to enter a new phase. An emerging trend is to take advantage of increased hardware capabilities and the equally rapid advance in data science to analyse these huge datasets more efficiently and to providing statistically meaningful information about the analysed materials to yield insights that were not previously possible. This workshop will introduce the concepts, applications and practical details of applying some of these data science techniques to the analysis of microscopy images and spectra.
