Plans for mmc2015 are well-advanced. It is building on the success of 2014 and, for the first time, will incorporate the ever-popular EMAG. Visit the website and see what we have planned.

Great training, and they are free

mmc2014 will continue the acclaimed programme of special "hands-on" Workshops originally introduced in 2002. The workshops enable the visitor to learn more about the practical details of the conference topics and microscopy in general.

The workshops will all take place on the exhibition floor in the four workshop theatres from Tuesday 1st July - Thursday 3rd July. Each session will run for approx 45 minutes.

Workshops are FREE to all visitors at mmc2014 to attend. You won’t need to pre-register, just make sure you turn up on time to ensure you have a seat.

A programme of the workshops can be found below.
