AFM Forum to Focus on Materials, Life Sciences
ZURICH, Switzerland, June 29, 2011 — Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zürich), Atomic Force F&E GmbH and Asylum Research have announced the third Euro AFM Forum. The atomic force microscopy event will be held in Zurich from Sept. 7 to 9 at Science City on ETH Zürich’s Hönggerberg campus.
The Euro AFM Forum agenda will include both invited and submitted talks, a poster session, an image contest, and instrument and equipment labs done on the Cypher and MFP-3D instruments. Topics will focus on AFM for both materials and life sciences applications. The forum is open to all researchers looking to share their research with the AFM community and to learn tips and tricks of instrumentation and software.
Invited speakers include Lyubov Belova of KTH Stockholm; Rüdiger Berger of MPIP Mainz; Ivo Rangelow of TU Ilmenau; Andras Kis of EPFL Lausanne; Christian Greiner of KIT Karlsruhe; Céline Lichtensteiger of the University of Geneva; Karim Bouzehouane, Thales; and Alexander Jakob/Stefan Mayr of IOM Leipzig.
“We are very pleased to welcome researchers to the EuroForum at ETH Zürich,” said Ludger Weisser, general manager of Atomic Force F&E. “After successful previous meetings at the University of Münster and the Technical University of Munich, we have chosen the ETH Zürich due to its high scientific ranking within Europe. With currently seven installations, including two of our new Cypher AFMs, the ETH is currently among the highest concentrations of Asylum AFMs in Europe. The material science department is known for its great scientific work, and we are privileged that they have partnered with us for the 2011 AFM Forum.”
Abstracts are being accepted for submitted talks and for the poster session, with a deadline of Aug. 15.
