All 250 on-site seats are booked!!!




Motivated by the very positive feedback to our first nanoanalytics workshop in spring 2019, we are organizing the 2-nd International Nanoscale Analytics Workshop to be held on May 18-21, 2022. Covering a broad spectrum of s-SNOM applications from life sciences to cryogenic analysis of 2D materials, we are aiming to gather 200-250 participants from universities and research institutes worldwide.



About this workshop:

neaspec invites you to join this exclusive four day event FREE OF CHARGE (including lunch, coffee breaks, workshop dinner and social events).

The workshop takes you through:

  • scientific talks on a variety of applications
  • poster session
  • a guided tour through our NanoFactory facility
  • and a daytrip social event

During the workshop, you will benefit from:

  • Discussing the latest scientific results with leading experts,
  • Better understanding of measurement principles & data analysis to help you prepare your results for publication,
  • Contributing actively to the application development roadmap of our systems,
  • Experiencing live the ease-of-use of our systems and learning about the latest technological developments,
  • Direct access to neaspec engineers to discuss your specific questions,
  • Meeting with Your fellow scientists for networking and establishing future collaborations.


    Please read the COVID-19 travel regulations prior booking your trip.

Watch selected presentations recorded at our first workshop:

Our first nanoscale analytics workshop (May 23-25, 2019) brought together 170 researchers from around the world and was a stunning success. It included more than 30 scientific talks on cutting-edge nanoscale research as well as tutorials and live demonstrations from near-field microscopy experts.
