Welcome to the Microscopy Society of Ireland. For an overview of the society, see the following:

MMC 2017

This year, instead of our annual symposium, the MSI is co-organising two sessions (together with the Scottish Microscopy Group, SMG) at the Microscience Microscopy Congress (MMC), organised by the Royal Microscopical Society. The event will take place in Manchester from July 3rd-6th. The international mmc2017 conference will comprise over 30 symposia, with excellent speakers and vibrant supporting poster sessions. Further to presenting new research in Ireland and Scotland, the "Celtic Sessions" are aimed at showcasing and encouraging collaborative research, and all members of the international microscopy community are sincerely invited to contribute to these sessions, which will include invited and regular talks, as well as flash presentations and poster sessions. Student bursaries will be available from MSI for students wishing to attend the conference.

Abstract Submission

The abstract submission for mmc2017 is now open. We are inviting abstracts for the Celtic Sessions:
