AIMS 2012 Annual 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. At other times during the year the society sponsors or co-sponsors special seminars on topics relevant to the society’s membership at their host institutions. At the conclusion of the annual conference, AIMS conducts an annual meeting in which board member elections are held for the upcoming year. All members are invited to attend.

Once you sign up as an AIMS member you can register for the conference through the Member Control Panel.
