The 27th Australian Conference on Microscopy and Microanalysis is committed to being a face-to-face event that will bring together colleagues across the life and physical sciences, to work towards new visions and goals in microscopy. We take pride in putting together a strong program for the conference based on advances in electron and light microscopy and microscopy-enabled research in the life sciences and physical sciences. The conference will include oral and poster presentation sessions, pre-conference workshops, Special Interest Group-focussed sessions, trade displays and social events.

Conference Ambassador

Brian T. Bollard was born in Geelong in 2003 and is descended from the famous long line of Geelong Bollards. Interested in microscopy from a young age, Brian was only a few months old when he was appointed Conference Ambassador for the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society and he has never looked back (he can’t, his head doesn’t move). Unable to settle down, Brian never manages to stay in one place for more than two years. While this wandering lifestyle would not suit everybody, Brian thrives on it and he hardly seems to have aged at all since his first conference in 2004. Brian lists Perth among his favourite places to be and has recently returned to the West after previous visits in 2008 and 2012. He looks forward to welcoming you all to Perth for ACMM27 in 2022.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement

The open exchange of ideas and the freedom of thought and expression are central to this conference. Our aim is to create an inclusive, respectful environment that invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientation. We actively seek to increase the diversity of our presenters, delegates and sponsors.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants. All interactions are to be respectful and constructive, including interactions during the review process, at the conference itself, and on social media.
