European Light Microscopy Initiative 2024 (elmi2024)

4 - 7 June 2024, Liverpool, UK

The European Light Microscopy Initiative was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment. Its aim is to promote the quickly developing field of light microscopy as a fundamental research tool for the life sciences and to strengthen the channels of communication between researchers, core facilities and industry.

The annual meeting, which has been running for two decades at various venues across Europe, has an excellent reputation within the microscopy community, making it a key event in the calendar of hundreds of scientists and developers. The strength of this meeting lies in the mixture of scientific lectures on state-of-the-art, high-end microscopy combined with “hands-on” workshops and exhibition of the latest technology, organised by the leading companies in the field.

elmi2024 will take place, in-person, from 4 - 7 June 2024 in Liverpool, UK

The event will encompass:

  • a blockbuster meeting programme covering all the latest techniques, applications and technology. Topics include: New Technologies, Imaging Across Scales, Super-resolution and Nanoscale Imaging, The AI Revolution, The Science of Tomorrow Today, and Multimodal Imaging.
  • a wide range of companies showcasing their latest technology and running workshops timetabled outside of the main meeting programme.
  • an accompanying exhibition in the purpose-built hall alongside posters, lunches and dinners (excluding the event dinner with networking which will take place close by at the Rum Warehouse).

Please note - elmi2024 is an in-person meeting and there will not be the opportunity to attend online.
