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.

Once you sign up as an AIMS member you can register for the conference in the member’s area. Undergraduate and Graduate Students and PostDocs are invited to submit an abstract and compete in the poster competition for cash prizes. [more information]
