Sfµ Junior Conference 2020
The third edition of the Sfµ junior conferences will be held at CEMES in Toulouse, from the 11th to the 13th of May 2020.
Like last time, the theme of the conference will be «Microscopy in the industries», with a focus on examples of work and applications of microscopy in the private sector.
The conference is directed towards young scientists and is therefore oriented around doctorate students and post-doctorants. As a participant, you will have the possibility to present your work in the format of an oral presentation or a poster presentation.
During the conference, representatives from different companies that work with microscopy in their daily life will present their experience and talk about the importance and the role that microscopy plays in their industry. In addition, there will be an exposition where different companies will have their own stand that you can visit freely and talk with the representatives to get more information about your personal questions.
There will also be theoretical session covering different themes and aspects of microscopy will be held by scientist from the academic sector.
The Sfµ Junior Conference is an opportunity for researchers in their early career stage to enhance their knowledge of microscopy and its usage in the academic and private sector, as well as making contacts that could build their future career.
The Sfµ (Société Française des Microscopies) is an association established in 1901 with the goal of improving the knowledge and the development of microscopy techniques, as well as to educate by the use of practical trainings and theoretical courses. In addition the Sfµ works to keep a close bond between the public research and the commercial actors of microscopy.
The history of Sfµ Junior
Every two years, the Sfµ organizes a conference called "Colloque Sfµ Junior" that is aimed specifically at young researchers (PhD students and post-doctorants) from working in the fields of life science and technology, and material science. It is a chance for the partisipants to meet other young researchers working whithin the same field and to attend a conference specifically aimed at them. The previous conference (2018) was held in the locals of EDF R&D in Renardières with the theme of "Microscopy in the industrial world".
Due to the current situation, we are constrained from postponing the Sfmu junior congress scheduled from May 11 to 13, 2020.
The congress should however be able to be held in November 2020. We will inform you as soon as possible of the date.
