Welcome to MSI Symposium.

The MSI Winter Symposium 2020 brings together microscopy users and specialists across a broad spectrum of the life, physical, and instrumental sciences from across Ireland. Encompassing microscopy in all its diverse forms, the symposium aims to be a friendly and inclusive environment where scientists at all career stages can present their work. Talks from postgraduate students and other early career researchers are strongly encouraged.

The symposium will consist of open sessions featuring talks and open demos from world leading laboratory and instrumentation specialist companies submitted abstracts from the broad spectrum of microscopy research.

Microscopy Workshop at the AML.

In addition to the main symposium, this year we are also hosting a hands-on, hackathon-style DIY microscopy workshop. Attendees will be divided into teams, and each team will spend the afternoon building some simple microscopes from basic components (simple optics, mechanical parts, 3D printed parts).

If you’ve ever wanted to have a go a building or customising your own equipment, or just like the sound of getting to take things apart and build something new, then this is the event for you!

Each team will be guided and assisted by one of the experienced hardware hackers helping to keep things running on the day. No experience or special skills are required, but a creative streak or just a willingness to have a go at something new is a real plus.

The workshop is free to those attending the symposium, but places are limited, so registration is essential. Registration for the workshop is available alongside the symposium registration.

Our Partners.

The Microscopy Society of Ireland (MSI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the science and practice of microscopy, creation of forums for academic and technical dialogue in matters relating to microscopy, and advancement of the training of its members.
