The conference is jointly organized by Bruker, the University of Bristol, and the Centre for NSQI, and promises to build on the biological and physical sciences interdisciplinary strengths of each organization.

Conference chairman: Prof. Mervyn Miles

Co-chairman: Prof. Heinrich Hörber

Keynote Speaker: Toshio Ando

Call for Papers

Abstract deadline is now 10th April, 2012.

Abstracts can cover a wide range of nanoscale imaging and property characterization applications as well as instrumental/technique development within the specific emphasis of the four sessions. Submitted papers will be considered for either oral or poster presentation at the conference unless author requests a poster session. All abstracts will be reviewed by the session chairs, and final abstracts will be printed in the conference program.
