Asylum Research, in conjunction with IMETUM, Nano Initiative Munich, and Atomic Force F+E, announces the 2nd Euro AFM Forum to be held at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Garching, Germany, July 1-3, 2009. The Euro AFM Forum is a conference for AFM researchers to share their cutting-edge research for both materials and life science applications. The Euro Forum will combine invited and contributed talks from leading European researchers as well as instructional workshops on AFM equipment. The workshops allow researchers to ask-an-expert and receive tips and advice which can be directly used in their own work. Workshop topics include cell imaging, imaging in liquids, force spectroscopy, electrical characterization and more. Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts for talks and posters as well as images. Prizes will be awarded for best poster and image. Abstract and image submission deadline is June 1. Conference details, confirmed speakers, and registration can be found on the official conference site at http://www.atomicforce.de/Euro-AFM-Forum-2009.php
“We are excited to co-host this conference since it will bring together many of the top AFM scientists that are doing such great research in this field. The topics and information conveyed will be useful for all AFMers, from novices to the most sophisticated researchers,” said Dr. Thorsten Hugel, Professor and Working Group Lead in Biophysics at the TUM.
“The first Euro AFM Forum was a major success with close to 100 scientists attending and very positive comments from many attendees, especially regarding the workshops. Asylum Research wants to provide scientific solutions, not just instruments and the Euro AFM Forum is a cornerstone for our relationships with researchers and an important part of our mission to broaden the fields where AFM science is successful. Based on initial responses and our distinguished list of invited speakers, we expect this year’s event to be an even greater success,” commented Roland Goschke, Senior Applications Scientist, Atomic Force F&E.
