The current global pandemic situation caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 is causing a great amount of uncertainty in general, but to scientific community in particular. We would like to inform you that the planning of the 17th International Conference on Electron Microscopy 2020 in Wisła is continuing. The Organising Comittee decided to postpone the event, and the Conference will be scheduled for November 29th — December 2nd 2020.

To allow maximum planning flexibility the deadlines were also changed. The new deadlines are given below:

If you already have made the reservation at the Hotel Stok, we would like to notify you that all the reservations were rebooked to a new date. The Organising Committee is doing everything possible to make the Conference take place in accordance with the new schedule.

The 11th International Conference on Image Analysis and Stereology in Materials

Important Announcement!

Due to a worldwide situation caused by the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with legal requirements of the Government of the Republic of Poland we are very sorry to announce that after much discussion and consideration the Organizing Committee of the 11th International Conference on Image Analysis and Stereology in Materials, has decided to CANCEL the STERMAT conference this year.

Many countries and regions recommend self-quarantine and many institutions strongly advising staff, faculty and students to restrict travel, that is why we have settled it is impossible to continue with the STERMAT conference.

In the name of the STERMAT Organizing Committee we advise you to take care of your health and of the ones around you.

The registration fee will be returned to everyone who has already paid it.

Publication: Authors of accepted presentations (oral, poster) are invited to submit their full manuscripts for publication reviewed as journal articles in journals with IF.
