Welcome to 3rd Croatian Microscopy Congress

We are pleased to announce that the 3rd Croatian Microscopy Congress with international participation will take place in Zadar, April 26-29, 2015. Congress is organized by the Croatian Microscopy Society, Ruđer Bošković Institute and FP7 project InnoMol.

A program of the Congress will include presentations of the applications of electron, light and scanning probe microscopy in Biomedicine, Biology, Physics and Chemistry of Materials, and related fields of research. The conference will also feature recent methodological developments in microscopy, presented by scientists and equipment manufacturers.

We offer a unique combination of excellent science, valuable information, pleasant environment, splendid cuisine, and a rich social program at affordable prices.

The 3-day conference will include 20 plenary and invited talks, 16 selected talks and a poster session.
