Deadline extension for Trends in Microscopy: “Bridging the Worlds”

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to inform you of a two week deadline extension for both early bird registration and abstract submission for oral presentations from young researchers for the conference Trends in Microscopy: “Bridging the Worlds”, 12-14 March 2018 in Düsseldorf (Germany) and the GerBI Core Facility Managers Satellite Meeting on 15 March (former Fulda-Meeting). In 2018, the TIM will be the first biennial meeting held in collaboration with the newly founded “German BioImaging-Gesellschaft für Mikroskopie und Bildanalyse e.V.” (GerBI-GMB).

We are also pleased to announce workshops will be offered by OMERO and by the companies Zeiss, Leica, and Olympus in the afternoon of the second day.

If you would like to attend only the Core Facility Managers Meeting on 15 March, please send an email to<>.<>
