Diamond Light Source is holding an Instruct funded meeting to discuss aspects of Cryo Soft X-ray imaging of biological cells. The aim of the meeting will be to bring together both existing and potential new users of the technique for talks and discussion and will focus on sample preparation techniques, data collection and analysis for soft X-ray tomography and also include a session on the correlation of X-ray data with other complementary (non-X-ray) techniques.

The meeting will comprise a series of invited talks in the above subject areas with significant time set aside for discussion.

A programme for the event can be found here.

The number of attendees at the meeting will be limited in order to encourage all to participate in the discussions. Attendees are requested to submit details of their area of work and their reason for interest in this new technique. Based on responses obtained some attendees may be asked to present their work either via a short talk or by poster. Anyone wishing to bring a poster on their work should indicate this on registration.

Poster boards will be available for those wishing to present posters on their work. A number of abstracts submitted for poster presentation will be selected for oral presentation in the appropriate session.

Participants are expected to fund their own travel and accommodation. Meals during the meeting will be provided.

Registration is now closed.
