10th Conference on Frontiers
of Electron Microscopy
in Materials Science

about the femms conference series::

The 10th conference on Frontiers of Electron Microscopy in Materials Science was the latest in the series of biennial conferences focusing on applications of electron microscopy, primarily of advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques, in solid state research. The conference series primarily arose to satisfy the requirements of the electron microscopy community working on materials science problems, which grew explosively in the late 1980's and has expanded to researchers working with analytical periphery, low energy microscopy and near field techniques. The conference is typically attended by about 100 participants. Previous meetings have had 13 to 26 invited lecturers, depending on the organisation structure and topics covered.

femms 2005 was hosted by the Ernst Ruska-Centre for Microscopy and Spectroscopy with Electrons in Jülich and Aachen and attracted more than 140 participants from 16 countries throughout the world. The programme committee compiled an oral programme including record-breaking 26 keynote lectures and 24 invited talks plus the femms 2005 special lecture. An additional 54 contributions were scheduled for poster presentation.

previous organisers::

In the early years, the meeting was organised primarily by Wayne King of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (US), Charles Allen of Argonne National Laboratory (US), and Steve Bradley of University of the Pacific (US).

This changed in 1998 when Frank Ernst and Joachim Mayer of Max-Planck-Institut fuer Metallforschung in Stuttgart (Germany) were principal organisers. In 2000, femms was organised by Sumio Iijima of NEC Fundamental Research Laboratory (Japan) and discoverer of the nanotube while the 2003 meeting was again organised by Wayne King.
