On behalf of the organizing committee of IMC 17 I am pleased to invite you to this congress that will be held in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 19 to 24 September 2010.
The International Microscopy Congress (IMC) held every four years under the auspices of International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM) has been providing an international forum for the state of the art of microscopy at the frontiers of research and applications in Materials Sciences and in Life Sciences. The Brazilian Society for Microscopy and Microanalysis (SBMM) is proud and happy to host the IMC 17. Brazil covers the majority of the South American Continent and Rio de Janeiro is an exuberant and cosmopolitan city with very pleasant weather in September. Easy access from all over the world, allows participation of delegates from all the IFSM affiliates societies to come to friendly Rio and feel at home.
Rio is not only a beautiful city but also a vibrant scientific, intellectual, and cultural center in Brazil. IMC 17 will be the event for an update on the challenges at the frontier of microscopy research.
