Euro Atomic Force Microscopy Forum 2011
(Nanowerk News) ETH Zurich, Atomic Force F&E GmbH and Asylum Research announce the third Euro
AFM Forum 2011 to be held in Zurich, Switzerland on September 7 to 9 in cooperation with Prof. Ralph Spolenak at
the campus Science City (Hönggerberg) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zürich).
The Euro AFM Forum agenda will include both invited and submitted talks, a poster session, an image contest and the very popular instrument and equipment labs done on the Cypher™ and MFP-3D™ AFMs.
Topics will focus on AFM for both materials and life science applications. The EuroForum is open to all AFM researchers that are looking to share their research with the AFM community and to learn tips and tricks of instrumentation and software.

the EuroForum at ETH Zurich. After successful previous meetings at the University of Muenster and the Technical
University of Munich, we have chosen the ETH Zurich due to its high scientific ranking within Europe. With currently seven installations, including two of our new Cypher AFMs, the ETH is currently among the highest concentration of Asylum AFMs in Europe. The Material Science department is known for its great scientific work and we are privileged that they have partnered with us for the 2011 AFM Forum."
Abstracts are currently being accepted for submitted talks and the poster session, with a deadline of August 15.
