about @ pico 2021

As with previous meetings in the PICO 20XX series of conferences, the Sixth Conference on Frontiers of Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy - PICO 2021 - 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.

Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the present pandemic situation PICO 2021 is scheduled to be held as a fully virtual event. Organisers have not taken the above decision lightly, but the health of participants, partners and teams in Aachen, Jülich and Vaalsbroek is of paramount importance. The next regular conference in the series, PICO 2022, is planned to be held in Kasteel Vaalsbroek from 8 to 12 May 2022 as an on-site meeting.

Confirmed speakers of PICO 2021 include Wolfgang Baumeister (Martinsried), Gianluigi Botton (Hamilton), Ariane Briegel (Leiden), Henry Chapman (Hamburg), Qing Chen (Beijing), Wah Chiu (Stanford), Elizabeth Dickey (Pittsburgh), Marija Drndix (Philadelphia), Joanne Etheridge (Victoria), Friedrich Förster (Utrecht), Hamish Fraser (Columbus), Kay Grünewald (Hamburg), Wim Hagen (Heidelberg), Max Haider (CEOS GmbH), Randi Homestad (Trondheim), Xiaodong Han (Beijing), Lothar Houben, (Rehovot), Colim Humphreys (Cambridge), Ryo Ishikawa (Tokyo), Ute Kaiser (Ulm), Ido Kaminer (Haifa), Demie Kepaptsoglou (Daresburg), Miyoung Kim (Seoul), Christoph Koch (Berlin), Bram Koster (Leiden), Paolo Longo (Gatan Inc), Andrew Maiden (Sheffield), Fabien Massabuau (Glasgow), Christian Maunders (Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc), Ohad Medalia (Zürich), Layla Mehdi (Liverpool), Sang-Ho Oh (Suwon), Rachel Oliver (Cambridge), Eva Olsson (Gothenburg), Jürgen Plitzko (Martinsried), Peter Rez (Tempe), Robert Sinclair (Stanford), David Smith (Tempe), John Spence (Tempe), Holger Stark (Göttingen), Toma Susi (Vienna), Mitra Taheri (Baltimore), Philipp Wachsmuth (JEOL (Germany) GmbH), Thomas Walther (Sheffield), and Jian-Min Zuo (Urbana).

PICO 2021 will also honour the scientific careers of four pioneers of transmission electron microscopy in solid state research and the life sciences. Special colloquia will be devoted to honour the achievements of Colin Humphreys and Knut Urban as well as Wolfgang Baumeister and John Spence celebrating their 80th and 75th birthdays in 2021, respectively. PICO 2021 will be organised by the Ernst Ruska-Centre in Aachen and Jülich.

PICO 2022 is scheduled to take place as an on-site conference to be held again in Kasteel Vaalsbroek
located at the bordering point of The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium from 8
to 12 May 2022. Topical issues of advanced electron microscopy research will be highlighted in 45 keynote presentations given by leading invited speakers plus additional contributed poster presentations.
