We are pleased to announce the 50th Meeting of SPMicros - Microscopy and Microanalysis in Materials and Life Sciences that will be held at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar, University of Porto.

Society members and all other researchers and students devoted to microscopy are invited to register for this meeting that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Portuguese Microscopy Society. 

Works in which any type of microscopy was used to investigate materials, cells or tissues are welcome for oral or poster presentations. The programme also includes lectures about the latest developments on microscopy research and techniques that certainly will be appreciated by all participants. 

We look forward to a large participation, with excellent presentations and lively discussions about microscopy and microanalysis in materials and life sciences.
