In the past few years, the capabilities of electron microscopes have been transformed by the ability to overcome lens aberrations, in the way that spectacles transform poor sight. This is possibly the most significant development in microscopy in the past thirty years. This meeting will explore the opportunities that the new aberration correctors bring, and the challenges that remain.

Invited speakers include: Professor Andrew Bleloch, Professor Christian Colliex, Dr Ulrich Dahmen, Dr Max Haider, Dr Peter Hawkes, Professor A Howie, Professor Angus Kirkland, Dr Ondrej Krivanek, Professor Hannes Lichte, Dr Peter Nellist, Professor Steve Pennycook, Professor Harald Rose, Professor Knut Urban, Dr Joachim Zach.

A draft programme and biographical information on the speakers is available on the Royal Society website.
