EBSD Topical Conference Summary


The Microanalysis Society welcomes you to the Electron-probe Microanalysis 2018 Topical Conference EBSD 2018, which will be held May 23-25, 2016 at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor MI campus. EBSD 2018 is dedicated to characterization of crystallography using electron beam diffraction, primarily Electron Back Scatter Diffraction (EBSD) on the scanning electron microscope.

EBSD 2018 will follow the very successful format of EBSD 2016 and will run for three days.  The first day, will be split into two tracks with an introduction/ basic track and an advanced track with all day tutorials in each including lectures on EBSD theory and application and hands-on demonstrations about how to run the basic EBSD experiments and data analyses.  The first day will also include live demonstrations of the latest EBSD hardware and software so that attendees with more experience can interact with the EBSD and related technology vendors.  The programming for the second and third days will be comprised of plenary, platform presentations of current research into the development of the EBSD technique and its application.  These presentations will be a mix of invited speakers, contributed professional presentations, and strong student presentations.  We will have a poster session on the afternoon of the second day, followed by a banquet to celebrate the meeting.

MAS Early career scholars (ECS) will be identified by coordination with MAS Affiliated Regional Societies (ARES) and International Union of Microbeam Analysis Society (IUMAS) societies. ECS travel and lodging will be supported by an NSF grant for domestic ECS, and by a combination of EPMA 2016 funds and co-sponsorship for international ECS to the extent possible.  ECS and student attendees will be identified by communication with university departments, announcement via the MAS web site, listservers, advertisements, social media, and other avenues.

Meeting facilities include a large auditorium and adjacent space for plenary meeting, breaks, and meals, all located in the UM North Campus Research Complex. Costs will be minimized by using educational facilities, and running the TC ourselves without the obligation or need of a meeting service.

Travel options include the Detroit airport (DTW) only 26 miles away, as well as Amtrak service directly to Ann Arbor. See Travel information below.

Lodging is available on campus and at nearby hotels. See Lodging information below.
