On behalf of the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC19), to be held from 9-14 September 2018, in the stunning new International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) right in the heart of Sydney.

We anticipate that the Congress will attract over 2,000 scientists working within and outside the microscopy sector. There will be a large interactive trade exhibition where leading suppliers are set to launch ground-breaking new instruments.

The Congress theme is ‘’Microscopy: Bridging the Sciences

We are planning an outstanding scientific program led by world-renowned plenary speakers, that will not only be a platform to showcase exciting new developments in microscopy, but will also demonstrate the transformational role of microscopy in underpinning a range of physical and life sciences.

Of course, a long tradition of IMC events has been the vibrant social calendar. IMC19 will be no different and delegates will have ample opportunity to enjoy the fabulous food, wine and hospitality that Australia is famous for.

While the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge provide the backdrop to this exciting event, Sydney is the gateway to a myriad of unique Australian experiences. We look forward to warmly welcoming you, and your family, to Australia to for this once in a lifetime experience.

Warm regards,
