n view of a widely positive resonance to PICO 2019
, organisers have decided to hold a follow-up meeting, the Sixth Conference on Frontiers of Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy, in spring 2021. The conference will again address recent advances in methods and applications for the study of solids in condensed matter research and the life sciences by the application of advanced electron microscopy techniques
PICO 2021 is scheduled to take place again in Kasteel Vaalsbroek
located at the bordering point of The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. The meeting will be held from 2 to 6 May 2021. Topical issues of advanced electron microscopy research will be highlighted in 45 keynote presentations given by leading invited speakers.
will also honour the scientific careers of pioneers of aberration corrected electron microscopy. For these purposes special colloquia will be devoted to honour the achievements of microscopists celebrating significant birthdays in 2021. PICO 2021 will be organised by the the Ernst Ruska-Centre in Aachen and Jülich.
