Probe Software is pleased to announce sponsorship of the IUMAS-6 Advanced EPMA Workshop on Saturday, August 2nd, 2014 in Hartford CT, to further development of electron microprobe techniques and methods. We will participate in the workshop technical discussions, and will also present a summary of product capabilities and customer solutions offered by Probe Software...

http://iumas6.org/workshops.html

Aside from the above mentioned Saturday workshop, Probe Software will not have an exhibitor booth at this M&M 2014 conference (though we most certainly will be an official exhibitor at GSA this October in Vancouver, Canada), but I will be available all week (August 3 to 7), in Hartford to personally discuss your specific laboratory and analytical requirements... just shoot me an email or phone call and we can arrange a meeting!

Dear fellow microscopists,

The Central Facility for Electron Microscopy of the RWTH Aachen University in collaboration with the European Microbeam Analysis Society would like to invite you to the "Monte Carlo Simulations for Electron Microscopy" workshop, that will be held at the RWTH Aachen University (Germany) from June 10th to 12th, 2014.

The aim of this workshop is to provide electron microscopists in-depth knowledge of Monte Carlo simulation methods to assist them in their daily scientific work. Lectures from leading Monte Carlo experts will cover both theoretical and practical aspects of current Monte Carlo programs. Tutorials and live demonstrations will highlight common applications of Monte Carlo simulations to the field of electron microscopy.

The registration for the workshop costs 150 (Euro) for EMAS members or RWTH personnel and 200 (Euro) for other participants. The course is designed for any scientist (students, technicians, researchers) having basic knowledge in EPMA, SEM and TEM.

For the full program, registration form and any other information about the workshop, please visit our website:
http://www.gfe.rwth-aachen.de/montecarlo

Sincerely yours,
Philippe Pinard and Silvia Richter

Cameca microprobe users and friends:

We (ad hoc steering committee: Fournelle/Yates/Jercinovic) are planning another Cameca EPMA "sx-users" meeting to follow up on last year's successful meeting in June  in Madison.  The M&M-IUMAS meetings  <www.iumas6.org>, which start Aug 2, will be held in Hartford CT, not far from Amherst, MA, and so we are planning our users meeting to immediately precede it, to be held July 31 - August 1 at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.  We think this could work well, both particularly for people residing in the Northeast and middle Atlantic region, and for people who are headed to the Northeast for those Microanalytical meetings.

Amherst is only an hour drive from Hartford (or 40 min from Hartford/Springfield-Bradley Intl, and <2 hours from Boston Logan). Our plan is similar to the schedule last year, a few application talks, presentations by Cameca about what's new, and discussions about service etc. would be on the table.  As we would be at UMass, discussion of trace-element, high spatial resolution EPMA and/or EPMA geochronology would also be part of this discussion. And following up some suggestions from last year, we would also organize focused discussions on topics of common interest, two suggestions being:  standards (which ones, and how to mount them), and another on how those of us with aging SX50s can keep them running a bit longer .

Please respond  and let us know if you are interested in attending this meeting, and  also include any topics you would like to see addressed (either for general discussion, or if you have a topic you would be interested in presenting--we are looking for contributed talks).

First Probe Software User Meeting In Australia! (14.02.2015)


John Donovan will be running a “Probe Software user meeting” in Australia. The meeting will take place on the 14th of February in Hobart, Australia. The day after the AMAS XIII conference (http://microscopy.org.au/amas/amas13/), which is also held in Hobart, Australia. Make the most out of your trip to Tasmania and participate in both events!

Of course both CAMECA and JEOL probers are welcome AND you don’t even have to be a Probe Software user (yet) to participate in the meeting – every prober is welcome!

The meeting will consist of two parts. At the beginning a range of “experienced” probe software users will give short presentations about latest developments and features of the software. In the second part, we will discuss ideas and wishes of users and do some troubleshooting. For that, participants are encouraged to prepare a few slides with things that they want to discuss, which could be problems that they encounter at their instrument, features that they would like to see in the software, … Most importantly, after each presentation of the meeting, there will be plenty of time for discussion.

Please contact Sandrin (Sandrin.Feig@utas.edu.au), if you are interested in participating and want to register for the event or if you have any questions or suggestions.

I just sent out a forum newsletter and it probably goes without saying, but... I'll say it anyway!

Of course I meant GSA 2014 in Vancouver!

Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to a 2nd discussion meeting on open source software for quantitative microanalysis on Tuesday August 4th, 2015 after the second day of the MM2015 conference in Portland, Oregon.

It goes without saying that the microanalysis community heavily depends on software. Quantification software, simulation programs, and physical quantities databases are essential tools for today's microanalysts. Broadly speaking, these software can be classified into four categories: commercial (sold by instrumentation's manufacturers or third-party companies),  personal/research group internal or not openly distributed (XFILM, PENELOPE), free to download and use (WinCasino, CalcZAF) and open source (DTSA-II, pyPENELOPE). Without a doubt all types of software play an important role in the community, but we strongly believe that only open source software can foster innovation while offering the same level of validation and transparency as peer-reviewed scientific work. Although closed source software may be based on published equations, they remain black boxes as other equations are sometimes used in running codes. Alternate implementations, further optimization or special cases are not shared with the users. Most importantly, commercial, private and free software are a barrier to innovate as they force scientists, who would like to improve or develop new algorithms, to start from scratch.

We would therefore propose to start a community-driven open source project to centralize physical quantity databases and algorithms used for quantification. The goal is to encourage collaborative work and provide the necessary building blocks for new projects in microanalysis. For more information, you can visit our website openmicroanalysis.org and discussion forum https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/openmicroanalysis, where the slides of the 1st meeting held at EMAS2015 are available.

The meeting will take place on:
Tuesday August 4th, 2015
at 4:00 to 5:00 PM
in room B118 in Oregon Convention Center.

You can gladly forward this invitation to other colleagues that may be interested in joining the discussion.

Best regards,
Hendrix, Raynald, Philippe and Silvia
