In this workshop, we will cover the wide range of applications for AFM tools used in physical chemistry, material science, molecular and cell biology, and many more.

The workshop includes: 

  • Scientific talks on the advances in AFM research field
    Invited Speaker:
    o Dr. Loredana Casalis, Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste
    o Dr. Francesco Valle, CNR-ISMN Bologna
    o Prof. Massimo Bonini, University of Florence
    o Dr. Tobias Cramer, University of Bologna
  • Technical presentation on the latest development in AFM technology
    Presented by Dr. Sang-Il Park, CEO Park Systems
  • Round table discussion
  • Live AFM Demo on NX10 Park AFM
  • Conference dinner
