IMC21 coming to Liverpool in 2026

Mar 18 2024

The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) is to providing full administrative and organisational support and services, in its appointed role of Professional Congress Organiser (PCO) for the 21st International Microscopy Congress, taking place in Liverpool in 2026.

The event, held every four years since 1954 is overseen by the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy (IFSM) and has become known as the 'Olympics of Microscopy'.

Attracting hundreds of delegates from across the globe, the Congress, set to take place in Liverpool, UK, from 28 August - 05 September, features world-renowned plenary speakers alongside an extensive trade exhibition with leading companies launching groundbreaking new instruments.

As planning takes shape over the coming two years, the RMS will be working closely with the scientific organising committee, the University of Liverpool and other partners - including the event venue, ACC Liverpool, based in Kings Dock.

RMS Chief Executive Sali Davis said: "This is wonderful news, and we are very honoured - and of course, excited - to be providing the organisational support for IMC21. The RMS has a wealth of experience in staging events for the global microscopy community and we are really looking forward to working with all our partners as planning takes shape over the next couple of years. We can't wait to see you in Liverpool in 2026!"

The successful bid to hold IMC21 was made by the Scientific Programme Committee, the University of Liverpool, Liverpool City Region and the RMS.
