Please Note :

The participation in the main conference (International Conference on Microscopy and 39th Annual Meeting of EMSI 2018) is limited to 450 participants due to logistics at the convention center and financial constraints.

Other than invited speakers, company delegates and organizing team members, all other regular delegates need to upload their abstracts (they can be co-authors as well). The selection would be based on the acceptance of the abstracts. Usually, more than one author may not be accepted. However, the organizers would try their best to accommodate as many as regular delegates possible. After the authors, if the vacancy is available, the organizers would try to accommodate other applicant who do not have paper to submit. In all the cases, priority is given to the Life Members of the EMSI. The organizers encourage applicants to visit the following website (http://www.emsi.org.in/) and send a soft copy of their EMSI membership form along with the money transfer ( 1600/- towards the life membership fee)
