7th X-Ray Microscopy European Network User Workshop

Oberkochen, Germany | 29-31 October, 2019

After a highly successful meeting last year in Stockholm, Sweden we are pleased to announce that the 2019 annual XEN Meeting will take place this year at the home of ZEISS in Oberkochen, Germany from the 29-31 October, 2019.
As an exclusive seminar for our Xradia European Network, we will present application talks from network members as well as new and future innovations from ZEISS.

This year we will also be running a one day hands on workshop at the ZEISS European Microscopy Customer Center giving attendees the chance to discuss and view applications and techniques in XRM. Using the unique and wide range of capabilities of the instruments present at the customer center, we will focus on correlative microscopy and the interaction between LM, FIB/SEM and XRM for both Life and Material sciences as well as giving the opportunity to experience crystallographic imaging by Laboratory Diffraction Contrast Tomography.

Attendance to the meeting is free to all X-Ray Microscopy European Network members and selected industrial partners. Please note that space at the hands-on workshop is limited so please indicate whether you wish to stay for this.
Suggested hotels for your trip are also below and further details will follow.
We look forward to welcoming you to this fantastic event in October!
