Dear Fellow Microscopists, Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the sponsoring societies, we would like to thank everyone who attended the M&M 2014 meeting. We hope your time in Hartford was as enjoyable as it was informative. Now we invite you to join us August 2-6, 2015 at the Oregon Convention Center in wonderful Portland, Oregon for Microscopy & Microanalysis 2015. Portland, known as the City of Roses, is a wonderful summer venue for the meeting, as many of you may fondly recall our previous visits there in 1999 and 2010.

This year, we look forward to another successful M&M meeting. The Program Committee has put together the epitome of scientific diversity that reflects our societies' interests. The program will highlight the latest techniques, methodologies and findings, spanning nano-to-macroscopic scales, and advances in fields such as nanotechnology, biological and clinical sciences, materials science, 3D manufacturing, and metallurgy. The overarching M&M 2015 theme is correlative imaging, with a nod to light-based technologies. As many of you are aware, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the "International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies" which will blend nicely with the interdisciplinary symposia that reflect the current environment of collaboration between scientists in different disciplines synonymous with M&M. We encourage all, whether neophytes or troupers of M&M, to submit an abstract of your work for presentation in Portland, as M&M 2015 promises to have something for everyone in the field.

The meeting will officially start on Sunday evening with a welcome reception. The technical program will commence on Monday morning with two plenary lectures featuring Nobel laureate Dr. Roger Tsien and a NASA Astronaut bookending the winners of our major society and meeting awards. The exhibit floor will showcase the latest state-of-the-art microscopy-related equipment. The vendor tutorials will continue to play a significant role in the meeting. The meeting will also feature an in situ EM pre-meeting congress, in-week intensive workshops, and tutorials, in addition to the traditional Sunday Short Courses.

No matter where you are in your career, participating at M&M 2015 will allow you to stay abreast of new technologies, learn new techniques, see the latest instrumentation, and most importantly, network with colleagues and make new connections. We hope that you will be able to join us in Portland for what is certain to be a very exciting and educational meeting.
