Presentations will focus on biological problems for which a combination 
of microscopies [i.e. integrated microscopy] has been used.  The 
speakers will demonstrate by example the power, potential and 
limitations of various microscopical techniques.

This year we are happy to invite attendees to present their work during 
the Saturday evening poster session.  There is a limit of approx. 40 
posters which can be displayed, therefore they will be accepted on a 
first come first serve basis.  A one page (8.5X11) typed abstract should 
accompany the registration form and fees.

Following the symposium, the IMR will be conducting a 2-day workshop.  
We will be presenting lectures and provide "hands-on" experience for the 
following techniques:
                *       Multiple-photon excitation imaging
                *       4D DIC imaging
                *       Cryo-SEM
                *       High pressure freezing
                *       Reversible embeddment for SEM and TEM

Workshop attendence will be limited to 25 participants.  A letter of 
application is required.  Once accepted a fee of $150.00 will be due.
