PICO 2021

02 - 06 May 2021

Kasteel Vaalsbroek, the Netherlands

In view of the positive resonance to PICO 2019, organisers have decided to hold a follow-up meeting, the Sixth Conference on Frontiers of Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy, in spring 2021. The conference will again address recent advances in methods and applications for the study of solids in condensed matter research and the life sciences by the application of advanced electron microscopy techniques.


PICO 2021 is again scheduled to take place in Kasteel Vaalsbroek located at the borders of Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Topical issues of advanced electron microscopy research will be highlighted in 45 keynote presentations given by leading invited speakers.

PICO 2021 will also honour the scientific careers of four pioneers of transmission electron microscopy in solid state research and the life sciences. Special colloquia will be devoted to honour the achievements of Knut Urban and Colin Humphreys as well as John Spence and Wolfgang Baumeister celebrating their 80th and 75th birthdays in 2021, respectively. PICO 2021 will be organised by the Ernst Ruska-Centre in Aachen and Jülich.
