will showcase exciting new developments in microscopy and demonstrate the transformational role of microscopy in underpinning a range of physical and life sciences. Encompassing four main streams—Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Instrumentation and Techniques, and Frontier Issues—outcomes from IMC19 will send ripples across the microscopy community worldwide for many years. T e Congress is your chance to meet and interact with the world’s most inspiring and prominent invited speakers who will present on various symposia topics including Structure and Function of Cells and Organelles ; Metals and Alloys ; Data Management (Storage, Processing and Sharing); and In-situ, Environmental, and Time-Resolved Microscopies . Over 1,500 contributing authors will present their research and fi ndings through a range of informational platforms, including digital posters and oral presentations. Our Scientifi c Program Committees have embraced emerging trends in Congress design, and we are pleased to introduce digital posters to the Congress to showcase scientifi c research, in addition to traditional hard-copy posters. Digital posters will be accessible via the Congress app, providing a new level of networking and communication opportunities for our authors and delegates.

A highlight of IMC19, T e IFSM Symposium, will take place on Friday September 14th and will include the presentation of IFSM Medal Awards for 2018, as well as special plenary lectures by the awardees.

Previously known as the IFSM School, the IFSM Young Scientists Assembly (IFSM YSA) is a one-day program exclusive to IFSM Young Scientists. T e IFSM YSA will provide 50 young scientists with the valuable opportunity to network with frontline practice leaders in an intimate and streamlined environment. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Nobel Laureates Joachim Frank and Dan Schechtman in a thought-provoking panel discussion embracing career planning and development. T is session also aff ords the opportunity to network with fellow emerging leaders. Pre-Congress workshops off er delegates the opportunity to make the most of their time at IMC19 by extending their knowledge in areas such as correlative microscopy, atom probe microscopy, data visualisation and analysis, and sample preparation.

an opportunity not to be missed. Prof. Frank is regarded as a co-founder of single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), for which he shared the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 with Jacques Dubochet and Richard Henderson. He also made signifi cant contributions to the structure and function of the ribosome from bacteria and eukaryotes. Prof. Frank will be joined by fellow IFSM Medal awardees who will each present an IFSM Medal Award Plenary Lecture.
