Please consider attending yourself and please 
pass this on to  potentially interested students, 
postdocs, researchers and professors.

50% of the 125 open seats have already been 
filled, so waiting much longer may mean missing 
out on this great meeting, if EBSD is your 

What: Microbeam Analysis Society's EBSD 2010 Topical Conference
When: Monday May 24-Wednesday May 26 (also several vendor events Sunday May 23
Where: University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI
Who: everyone from raw novices to experienced practitioners
Why: a one day tutorial with hands-on labs for 
beginners, and 2 days of invited and contributed 
talks on the latest topics, including sample prep 
for both geological material and metals

There is abundant funding for student 
participation, and any student using EBSD or 
contemplating using EBSD in their research should 
plan to attend! The deadline for applications for 
financial aid is March 1 (you must be registered 
first, but submission of an abstract is not 

Abstract submission deadline is March 1.
