About AMAS X


Following the past successes of AMAS meetings, we invite you to Adelaide for the tenth AMAS symposium. The meeting will be held at the University of Adelaide, in Adelaide City.


The aim of the Symposium is to provide a forum where participants can discuss microanalysis and imaging, with emphasis on practical solutions and applications.


We strongly encourage you to present recent work using scanning or transmission electron microscopy and microanalysis. The success of the meeting is entirely dependant on the quality (and quantity) of presentations.

Oral presentations

It is anticipated that all contributions will be in the form of oral presentations.


A series of workshops prior to the symposium have been arranged to review and discuss the state of the art in analytical microscopy and microanalysis.
