Announcement: Annual Meeting of the Netherlands Society for Microscopy, 28 – 29 September 2015NVvMmeeting2015
The meeting will be held on 28 and 29 September at the NH Koningshof in Veldhoven. The meeting is a joint event with the DutchBiophysics 2014. Click here for more information and to register.

Goal and scope
The goal of the meeting is to assemble all groups that work on molecular and cellular biophysics and microscopy in the Netherlands. The meeting consists of plenary sessions, with invited presentations by (inter)national speakers, and special oral and poster sessions.

Topics include the biophysics of living cells and their membranes, the cytoskeleton, molecular motors, DNA- and RNA-protein interactions, theoretical biophysics, systems biology and networks, photosynthesis, and new developments in light and electron microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy, force probes, (bio)chemical synthesis, and nanotechnology. We welcome contributions from researchers studying these topics from an experimental, theoretical or modelling background.

Organisation
The Meeting is organised and sponsored by FOM and NWO Earth and Life Sciences, in co-operation with the Netherlands Society for Microscopy and the Society for Biophysics and Biomedical Technology
