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.
