Lehigh Microscopy School cancels 2020 session

BETHLEHEM, Pa., USA: In line with the exceptional measures taken by Lehigh University to mitigate the risk of exposure and spread of COVID-19, the 2020 Lehigh Microscopy School, originally scheduled for May 31-June 5, 2020, in Bethlehem, Pa., has been canceled.

The Lehigh Microscopy School, a weeklong series of courses that keeps engineers, scientists, and technicians abreast of developments in scanning electron microscopy, was set to mark its 50th anniversary.

“Although we are disappointed to cancel this year’s programming, without question, the safety of our lecturers, participants, and staff is our top priority,” says the school’s director, Chris Kiely, a professor of materials science and engineering in the P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science.

Registered participants will receive full registration refunds.

The next session of the Lehigh Microscopy School is scheduled for June 6-11, 2021. For more information and the latest updates, follow the Lehigh Microscopy School on LinkedIn.

Notice Regarding COVID-19 and EBSD 2020 Topical Conference

The organizing committee and Microanalysis Society are closely monitoring the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus). As of today, we intend to proceed with the conference as planned, but we have decided to temporarily pause registration in order to minimize any potential inconvenience to attendees. The wellbeing of all attendees is our primary concern, and a final decision on whether to proceed with the conference will be made no later than April 1st, following guidance from the CDC and the University of Michigan. If the conference goes ahead, both the registration and abstract deadlines will be extended until at least May 1st. If, on the other hand, we cannot host EBSD 2020 on the planned dates, the topical conference will be postponed until May/June 2021, with refunds offered to all current registrants.

Notice Regarding COVID-19 and M&M 2020

The effect of COVID-19 on event planning is a rapidly-evolving situation. MSA and MAS Leadership are aware that many upcoming conferences have been canceled or postponed, and that several organizations and universities have enacted travel bans for the 2nd quarter.

MSA and MAS Leadership have determined that it is too early to make changes for August. The Microscopy & Microanalysis (M&M) community will be informed immediately if any changes or decisions are made that will affect M&M 2020, but as of today, all plans regarding M&M 2020 in August in Milwaukee, WI are moving forward as scheduled. Note that should the event be postponed, registration fees will be transferred to the re-scheduled event, and if M&M 2020 is canceled, registration fees will be refunded.
