Dutch SPM Day 2017

8 November 2017
Science Campus
Einsteinweg 55
2333 CC Leiden

It is our pleasure to announce that the Dutch SPM Day 2017 will take place at Leiden University, Leiden on Wednesday, November 8 2017.

The Dutch Scanning Probe Microscopy Day is an (almost) annual traditional one-day conference that aims at bringing together experts of all fields of scanning probe microscopy research in academia as well as industry within the Netherlands and Belgium as well as from close-by neighbors in Germany.
We will have invited and contributed talks plus a poster session, as well as an industry exhibition.

The SPM Day will be held in the Gorlaeus Laboratories on the beta campus of Leiden University. For any questions, please contact us.
