We are excited to announce the next meeting in the ‘Best practices in CryoEM’ series, the first in the series to be hosted online on 12 - 13 October 2020.
Now in its fourth year, the workshop is intended to allow those involved in the running of high-end cryoEM facilities to discuss and share best practice, and is open to EM facility scientists, manager and computing specialists both from academia and industry.
Sessions will include presentations on best practice in sample preparation, imaging and data handling/processing, operational models in light of COVID-19, as well as round table discussions focused on specific topics. If you have any suggestions for topics of discussion, please contact Rebecca Thompson.
The main presentation sessions from 14:00 -18:00 CEST on 12 and 13 October are open to all participants. When you have registered, you will be sent a personal link that will enable you to connect to both of the main sessions on 12 and 13 October.
To facilitate constructive discussion, the breakout sessions from 10:30 – 13:00 CEST on Tuesday 13 October will be limited to core staff involved in cryoEM facility management, but recordings of the sessions will be made available after the virtual conference.
Breakout Session 1: 10:30 – 11:30 CEST
1a Training others in cryoEM
1b EM data collection pipelines and microscope operation
Breakout Session 2: 12:00 – 13:00 CEST
2a Processing pipelines and software
2b Safe and sustainable operation of EM facilities post COVID
If you have registered to join the breakout sessions, you will have selected your preferred session. Pending approval of your application, you will be sent separate connection details to join the breakout sessions. Please note that breakout sessions will be filled on a first-come basis. REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED.
All times are in CEST.
