EBSD-2020 - Topical Conference on Electron Backscatter Diffraction - POSTPONED to 2021 date tbd
24th - 26st June 2021, Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A.
EBSD-2020 - Topical Conference on Electron Backscatter Diffraction
The Microanalysis Society welcomes you to the Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) 2020 Topical Conference, which will be held June 24 - 26th, 2020, at the University of Michigan. The biennial MAS EBSD topical conference brings together EBSD developers and users of all abilities, across the geosciences and materials sciences, for a three-day meeting featuring:
- Beginner and advanced tutorials covering EBSD theory, sample preparation, data acquisition, and applications (June 24th);
- Hands-on demonstrations by leading EBSD developers;
- Invited and contributed podium presentations, as well as a poster session, covering EBSD applications and emerging technologies across geoscience, materials science, and engineering (June 25-26th);
- A conference banquet (included in the cost of registration) following the Thursday afternoon poster session.
EBSD 2020 will follow the very successful format of EBSD 2018 and will run for three days. The first day will feature beginner- and advanced-level tutorials, including lectures on EBSD theory and application, with hands-on demonstrations from leading EBSD vendors. The programming for the second and third days will be comprised of plenary and contributed presentations highlighting recent developments, data analysis methods, and materials science and geoscience applications. We will have a poster session and competition on the afternoon of the second day, followed by a banquet to celebrate the meeting.
