The Department of Quantum Matter Physics (DQMP) at the University of Geneva and Oxford Instruments Asylum Research are pleased to announce the 5th Euro AFM Forum to be held June 22-24 at the University of Geneva.
If there is one atomic force microscopy (AFM) conference to attend this year, make it the Euro AFM Forum. Ideal for both novice and experienced AFM users, the Euro AFM Forum is an excellent opportunity for scientists to share their research results in both material and life science disciplines. It is the perfect venue for scientists to increase their understanding of AFM technology, and learn from other scientists that have successfully used AFM for innovative solutions in their research.
The Forum consists of three days of lecture sessions by international keynote speakers, a poster session and image contest. The conference also features live equipment demonstration sessions where attendees can learn about new AFM technologies, “ask an expert,” and receive tips and tricks that will help them in their daily research.
We are very excited that the Euro AFM Forum is coming to the DQMP, University of Geneva. The DQMP is a major center of Swiss research in the field of quantum matter physics, where materials with fascinating and often extreme properties are studied with avant-garde methods, both from the experimental and theoretical point of view.
The University of Geneva is a cornerstone for AFM research. An important part of our mission is to pass along our knowledge to fellow scientists. With a large variety of state-of-the-art AFM systems being in constant use, our research represents a wide range of applications and materials that can be investigated with these powerful instruments. Partnering with Asylum Research further emphasizes our commitment to bring the highest level of AFM technology as well as their unprecedented knowledge and support to our AFM community.
