For those who missed my presentation at the (virtual) Athens EPMA workshop 2021 earlier this month, here is a link to my Quantitative WDS X-ray Mapping talk:

It was an excellent workshop, well organized and very well attended.

I will be presenting our paper on WDS compositional mapping in EPMA Oct 10th at GSA 2021 Portland. The full paper will be in the November issue of American Mineralogist this fall.



Please feel free to chat with me after the presentation during the break.

Dear Colleagues,

The window for submitting abstracts for GEOANALYSIS 2022 begins on 3 January 2022. Early Bird Registration starts on the same day (https://geoanalysis2022.de).

The conference will be held in Freiberg (Germany) from 6 - 12 August 2022.

The 11th GEOANALYSIS conference is an international gathering focused on the analysis of geological and environmental materials and is organized by the International Association of Geoanalysts (IAG). This event, like its ten predecessors, will be an important forum for the exchange of knowledge in areas such as:
•   Instrumentation: such as ICP-MS methods, EPMA, SIMS, TIMS, XRF and many more
•   Reference Materials and Proficiency Tests
•   Automated Analytical Methods for exploration and raw material assessment
•   In-situ  Mapping using Major and Trace Elements as well as Isotopes

The philosophy of Geoanalysis conferences is to provide an intimate gathering of ca. 200 delegates with an all-inclusive programme of scientific and cultural activities, with accommodation available near to the conference centre, thereby maximizing networking opportunities. 
An extensive workshop programme is scheduled in conjunction with the meeting.

We would be very interested in increasing the proportion of contributions from the EPMA community.
In particular, I would find it very significant to intensify the discussion that was recently initiated by the "Open Letter to the Microanalysis Community" (https://probesoftware.com/smf/index.php?topic=1415.msg10367#msg10367 ) at the meeting.

Direct inquiries can be directed to me (a.renno@hzdr.de) or the organizing committee (office@geoanalysis2022.de).

With my best wishes
On behalf of the organizers
Axel Renno

We invite you to submit an abstract for Symposium A05: Quantitative and Qualitative Mapping of Materials at the upcoming Microscopy and Microanalysis meeting, to be held both virtually and in-person in Portland, Oregon from July 31-August 4th 2022. The abstract deadline is February 15th, and more instructions, including an abstract template, can be found at the website https://www.microscopy.org/MandM/2022/.

The Symposium description is given below:

A05:  Quantitative and Qualitative Mapping of Materials
 
This symposium will discuss applications and advances in qualitative and quantitative mapping utilizing techniques such as energy-dispersive spectrometry, wavelength-dispersive spectrometry, x-ray fluorescence, electron backscatter diffraction, secondary ionization mass spectrometry, cathodoluminescence and laser ablation mass spectrometry. The software used to produce and manipulate maps will be discussed, as will best-practice methods for obtaining optimum results. Applications include, but are not limited to, geological and extraterrestrial materials, semiconductors, biological materials, and ceramics.

• Quantitative element mapping
• Qualitative mapping
• EDS/WDS/EBSD/XRF/SIMS/LA-ICPMS/CL
• Geological and extraterrestrial materials
• Biological materials
• Metals, ceramics and semi-conductors

Organizers:

Dear colleagues,

You are invited to participate in the Tephra Fusion 2022 virtual workshop this February and March.

The primary audience for this workshop is scientists whose work intersects with tephra and volcanic ash samples and data as well as other scientists who may use similar types of research samples, software tools, or data. Much volcanic ash work is done with EPMA and SEM-EDS, and the workshop will include information about  a new approach for archiving EPMA data and analytical methods at the EarthChem repository. These approaches may be relevant to others who utilize the same techniques on various geological materials.

The Tephra Fusion 2022 virtual workshop is intended to report on progress made, recently-released recommended practices, new software tools and field apps, and new support for tephra data in open-access data archives. Participants will also learn how to make their data open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) and learn about the broader open data landscape. We will have perspectives from funding agencies, journal publishers, and data repositories. The workshop is also intended to gather community input, identify unmet needs, and initiate planning for future developments.

Registration: https://forms.gle/kLWZHsF48KM5Gj5F7 (same link valid for all sessions)

Workshop Website: https://tephrochronology.org/cot/Tephra2022/ (See first circular for agenda and speakers)

Format:  virtual workshop series, four 2-hour (max) webinar sessions

Media:  Zoom -- Workshop videos will be made available on the website after each session.

Dates:  February 10, 18, 25 and March 3 (Thursdays & Fridays)

Conveners: Steve Kuehn (sckuehn@concord.edu) Kristi Wallace (kwallace@usgs.gov) Marcus Bursik (mib@buffalo.edu) Andrei Kurbatov (akurbatov@maine.edu)

Dear Colleagues,
Apologize for multiple postings. Still have some open slots, and registration deadline extended up to 28th February 2022 (late registration is possible but is not recommended)!

So, here is the announcement of the 3rd 4-day virtual Workshop on EPMA developments and applications, and do not hesitate to visit our new website (https://sites.google.com/view/epmathens2022).

Electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) is commonly used to analyze the composition of solid geological materials to help answer a wide range of fundamental questions in geological and planetary sciences. The goal of this 4-day short course is to educate undergraduates, graduates, and early career researchers in the theory and practice of EPMA, with a specific focus on its application to geochemistry. This will be achieved through a set of online lectures covering topics ranging from conventional major element quantitative analysis to new developments in X-ray mapping, soft X-ray analysis, trace element analysis, measuring oxidation state and water content of hydrous glasses, and characterizing meteorites. Usage of EPMA through a live 2-hours demo will also be given. A socializing event on the first day using Gather.Town will help participants get to know each other and highlight topics of interest for the rest of the course.

For more details follow the link: https://sites.google.com/view/epmathens2022.

Register here: https://forms.gle/4eqKHqCKcj8wNUz16.

On behalf of the EPMA workshop committee,

Best Regards,
Baziotis Ioannis

Due to interest expressed at the 2022 Athens EPMA Workshop (see above post), we have decided to offer an MAS sponsored EPMA software workshop for several free software applications that are available to all. It is being called the "2022 MAS EPMA Software Workshop".

The presenters will be Nicholas Ritchie (NIST), John Donovan (University of Oregon), Aurelien Moy (University of Wisconsin), Mia Kraft (University of Minnesota) and Hendrix Demers (McGill University). The workshop will be moderated by Ed Vicenzi (Smithsonian Institution) and Owen Neil (University of Michigan).

The workshop is open to all and will be held on June 15th starting at 11:00 AM Eastern US time and offers the following software demonstrations (US Pacific Coast Time):

8:00 - 8:05     Intro (Vicenzi, 5 min)

8:05 - 8:45     DTSA2 (Ritchie, 40 min)

8:45 - 9:25    CalcZAF/Standard (Donovan, 40 min)

9:25 - 9:40     Break/Discussion (15 min)

9:40 - 10:05   BadgerFilm (Moy, 25 min)

10:05 - 10:25   Re-Imager (Kraft, 20 min)

10:25 - 10:55   WinXray/Casino (Demers, 30 min)

10:55 - 11:10   PictureSnapApp (Donovan, 15min)

11:10 - 11:15   Good bye (Vicenzi, 5 min)

All software will be available for download and sample data provided so attendees can follow along. More details to follow.

If you missed my (virtual) presentations at the Athens 2022 EPMA Workshop, they are available here for download:

https://epmalab.uoregon.edu/posters.htm

I presented on Light Element Analysis, and Errors and Statistics in EPMA. It was an excellent meeting and I believe a good time was had by all!    :D

Thank-you to John Fournelle whose work these presentations were originally based on.
