International Scanning Probe Microscopy Rio 2015 is the 17th meeting in a continuing series of international meetings featuring research on scanning probe microscopy (SPM), sensors, and nanostructures that began in Seattle in 1999. The goal of this meeting is to communicate the latest developments and applications of scanning probe microscopy methods. This meeting attracts researchers working in academia, government, and industry. It rotates around the world (USA, Germany, Japan, UK, China, Mexico, France, Korea, Spain and Canada) and the last one was held at Seoul, Korea, now for the first time will be in South America at Rio de Janeiro (Búzios), Brazil.

Asylum Research Technical Talk:
"Extracting Quantitative Nanomechanical Properties from Tapping Mode AFM Measurements"
Rob Cain


Date: June 18th – 20th 

Venue: Instituto de Biofísica Carlos Chagas Filho – UFRJ 
Cidade Universitária, Rio de Janeiro – Rio de Janeiro – Brazil 

This pre-congress class, for young scientists and newcomers, will provide basic information about new advances on imaging techniques and force spectroscopy using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). Training sessions will include the following AFM topics: Contact, Intermittent Contact, Non-contact, Peak Force tapping modes; Soft and hard materials characterization; Optical and AFM correlative image; High speed imaging; Force spectroscopy; Sample preparation and SPM imaging modes. These activities will emphasize theoretical and practical principles of Scanning Probe Microscopy, in particular, Atomic Force Microscopy imaging techniques, aiming to extract the maximum SPM information. 

The organizers will select 20 participants to access the hands-on-school activities and ISPM conference will be obligatory. For this purpose the selected participants will have a free registration at Búzios conference. 

Course certificate
The hands-on school certificate, including the participation on the ISPM conference, will correspond to 60 hours course of graduated studies.
