MAS 2019, Topical Conference on Quantitative Microanalysis


The MAS topical conference on quantitative microanalysis, QMA 2019 will be held at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, from June 24-27, 2019. This topical conference will focus on EPMA-WDS, SEM-EDS, and advances in microanalysis including cathodoluminescence, micro X-ray fluorescence, and other topics. The meeting will consist of a day of user meetings and interaction with sponsor representatives, and a three-day plenary meeting which includes tutorials and advances in microanalysis, instrumentation demos, group lunches and other networking opportunities, social mixers and a banquet.

We also will receive NSF funds to provide for co-sponsorship of early career scholars from domestic universities to attend the conference. The ECS awards are competitive and based on submission of an abstract for a platform or poster presentation. Details of the ECS program are in the attached letter, please note the deadline for submission of ECS abstracts is March 15. The deadline for contributed abstracts and posters is May 15 and June 1, respectively.

The QMA 2019 topical conference expands on the program from the EPMA 2016 topical conference held in Madison, WI.

We can provide a letter to help with obtaining a visa for travel from countries that require a visa for travel to the USA.

I do hope that you or a colleague can attend the topical conference. We provide a rewarding educational experience in the MAS topical conference program with 16 conferences to date.
