It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the COMULIS Conference on the beautiful island of Cyprus, and at the science, technology, and innovation-focused Cyprus Institute hosting the event. COMULIS 2022 is designed to bring experts, researchers, facility staff and exhibitors together from different imaging modalities to stimulate knowledge exchange and the formation of new collaborations. The conference program offers an attractive combination of oral presentations and posters from electron and light microscopy, X-ray, MRI/PET scans to image analysis, and correlated multimodal imaging in synchrotron radiation facilities, with selected poster presenters, invited for short flash talks. It will also provide excellent opportunities for discussions and informal gatherings. Emphasis is on correlative imaging methods (CMI) able to capture the dynamics of life, spanning the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging whole organisms. Industry talks are included and provide opportunities to discuss marketable solutions in CMI and cross-corporate workflows to facilitate multimodal imaging.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Cyprus, to join us in person at the COMULIS Conference for what is certain to be a very exciting, energizing, and stimulating meeting. On behalf of the entire COMULIS Conference Organizing Committee, we extend an invitation to You to join us in Cyprus!
