After a four-year hiatus, the Microanalysis Society is excited to announce the upcoming Electron Backscatter Diffraction 2022 (EBSD 2022) topical conference! In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, EBSD 2022 will take place entirely online, from June 7–9, 2022.

EBSD 2022 will start with a day of tutorials and vendor demonstrations, followed by two days of technical presentations spanning materials science, geoscience, and engineering topics. We will also host a virtual poster session on the second day of the conference. EBSD 2022 will be an opportunity for EBSD practitioners of all levels of expertise—from newcomers to seasoned professionals—to learn about the latest technical advances and applications of the EBSD technique.

Please note that the EBSD 2022 registration and abstract submission deadlines have now passed. An email containing the conference booklet and login information was sent to EBSD 2022 participants on June 3rd. Please check your spam folder if you did not receive this email.
