The ICE Workshop Organizing Committee invites you to register for the first ‘International Cryo-EM (ICE) Workshop for Advanced Materials’ on August 22 – 25th, 2022, which will take place at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), 1101 Eubank SE, Albuquerque, NM 87123.
Please register here: https://cvent.me/4xvLQd. Space is limited to the first 40 registered participants and registration will close on June 17.
The ‘ICE Workshop for Advanced Materials’ is an in-person science and training workshop that combines invited lectures on current advancements and applications of cryogenic electron microscopy for materials sciences with lab demonstrations of current state-of-art cryogenic microscopy techniques.
This workshop covers each critical step of a successful cryogenic microscopy study, including specimen preparation, specimen transfer, cryogenic SEM/FIB, new cryo-EM stages, imaging, and spectroscopy at low temperatures. Vendor talks will provide information on the current state-of-the-art tools and workflows for Cryo-EM experiments. In-person lab demonstrations will be performed at CINTs Core Facility at SNL, allowing participants to have live interactions with the instructors and hands-on experience. We invite participants to bring a (3’ x 4’) poster of their work to share during the workshop. Additional pre-recorded lab demonstrations will be provided by experts from various institutions.
This workshop aims to unify the current state-of-the-art and bring together experts in cryogenic electron microscopy for materials science. We particularly aim to:
- Provide a learning platform for students and early career materials scientists who are interested in recent Cryo-EM technical and scientific advancements
- Connect scientists from international and US universities with National Laboratories to stimulate an intensive exchange of Cryo-EM knowledge
- Accelerate the design and development of new equipment and methods for cryo-EM research
