Dear Friends,

On behalf of the local organising committee, I would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to participate in MSSA 2016. The 54th annual MSSA conference will be hosted by the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, and will be held on 5-8 December 2016 at the Boardwalk Convention Centre in Port Elizabeth. It has been exactly ten years since NMMU has had the privilege of hosting this esteemed event. Many exciting things have happened since you last visited us; not least of which is the launch of the new Centre for High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy at NMMU in 2011.


The MSSA conference is the highlight of the local microscopy community calendar; and many look forward to this conference as a time to unwind with old friends, while catching up on the latest trends in research and technology. This year promises to be no different. We look forward to an exciting conference with many respected international speakers, cutting-edge workshops, and a fabulous social programme to boot.
