Dynamic in-situ microscopy relating structure and function

Discussion meeting

Location

The Royal Society, London, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG

Overview

Fast-track discussion meeting organised by Dame Pratibha Gai FREng FRS, Professor Edward Boyes, Professor Rik Brydson and Professor Richard Catlow FRS.

Atomic level dynamics of irregular nano-gold: by Gai, Boyes and group

This meeting will evidence and advance development in dynamic in-situ environmental electron, scanning probe, optical and fast time resolved microscopy and computer modelling studies of vital interest in the chemical, physical and life sciences, underpinning technologies of high commercial and societal value. It will focus on the pivotal role of imaging and spectroscopy for dynamic processes across the sciences to access previously invisible aspects of real world processes.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.

Poster session

There will be a poster session at 17.00 on Monday 21 October. If you would like to apply to present a poster, please submit your title, your abstract (no more than 200 words and in third person), author list, name of the proposed presenter and authors' institutions to the Scientific Programmes team no later than Monday 19 August 2019. Please include the text 'Poster abstract submission' and the meeting title in the subject heading. Please note that places are limited and are selected at the scientific organisers' discretion. Poster abstracts will only be considered if the proposed presenter is registered to attend the meeting.

There is also the opportunity to present a short talk at the meeting. If you would like to be considered for a short talk, please include this when you submit your abstract.
