2023 AIMS Conference


The Arizona Imaging and Microanalysis Society hosts an annual conference every spring. This annual meeting provides a forum for members to discuss research and exchange ideas, as well as an opportunity for learning about new techniques and concepts. We encourage anyone who works with microscopy to sign up as an AIMS member. Registration for the conference is separate and you can register through this link.

Scientific Poster Session: Undergraduate or graduate students who use microscopy in their research are invited to submit an abstract and present a poster. The abstract submission deadline is February 24th.

Talks are not guaranteed but will be selected from those abstracts indicating they prefer a talk or have no preference. Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentation as follows:
