Welcome Message


On behalf of the Japanese Society of Microscopy, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 75th Microscopy Annual Meeting, to be held from June 17 (Monday) to 19 (Wednesday), 2019, at the Nagoya International Convention Centre, right in the heart of Nagoya City.

Past meetings have emphasized the importance of microscopy as an indispensable common tool shared by a wide range of scientific fields and encouraged not only mutual interaction between physical/materials sciences and medical/biological sciences but also collaboration with industry and other domestic/overseas societies continuously developing in recent “borderless” times.

This time, we addressed the thematic subject, “Paradigm Shift in Microscopy – From Structural Analysis to Function Investigation,” to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the society. We expect to share new visions among researchers and manufacturers in this field through the annual meeting; it is a great place to exchange information for further development, rather than just following the current trends.

At this annual meeting, we are planning not only conventional events and sessions but also a ceremony and international sessions to commemorate the society’s 70th anniversary. In addition, we are also planning an enchanting attraction fit for this commemorative occasion. We cordially invite you to attend.

Shunsuke Muto,
Chair of the 75th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Microscopy
Professor, Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability, Nagoya University
