The 9th K. H. Kuo Summer School of Electron Microscopy & Crystallography and
2016 Kuo Symposium on 3D Cryo-EM Molecular Imaging
Beijing, China, June 24-30, 2016
The annual electron microscopy meeting series is named after the late Prof K.H. Kuo, a prominent electron microscopist who discovered quasicrystal and first introduced EM to China, who also trained a generation of electron microscopists in China, including some of us organizing this symposium/summer school. The symposium is partially sponsored by the Kuo Education Fund, which was established by his over 100 former graduate students as a tribute to Kuo as a great scientist and a loving mentor.
The biannual CryoEM meeting series has evolved from a summer school aimed to bring modern CryoEM technology to Chinese students into an important international symposium in the field of CryoEM in Asia countries. The last biological CryoEM meeting was held in Shanghai in July 2014 and chaired by Huilin Li (SUNY Stony Brook, USA), Yifan Cheng (UCSF, USA), Yao Cong (SIBCB, China), and Yongning He (SIBCB, China). More than 200 scientists and students from Asia, America, and Europe attended the meeting.

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished scientific results. The abstracts must be submitted electronically before April 24, 2016. Selection of material for short talk and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. The list of fellow's short talk/poster will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
The teachers and speakers of this summer school will provide the following materials that include essential literatures, tutorials, software packages with installation instructions and training data sets. Their lectures will be also available during the summer school. We encourage all participants to download these materials and read them before you come to the 2016 Kuo summer school. For those participants who use their own laptops, please install the relevant packages and download the training data sets properly from this website before you come to the video room and watch the practice session.
