icon announcing MONT Annual Meeting with a megaphone

The 2021 MONT Users Meeting will be held Thursday, October 28th from 1-4pm with a poster session from 4-5pm.

We are planning  an in-person meeting in Inspiration Hall in the Norm Asbjornson building on the MSU campus.

The purpose of the MONT Annual Users Meeting is, as always, to listen to our facility users and see how we can best serve you,for MONT to hear creative ideas regarding ways the facilities can help meet emerging research themes and opportunities, for our facilities to share what is new (SO much new equipment in the past year!), and to  let you know about important happenings in the new round of NSF NNCI funding. This meeting is also a celebration of research and user accomplishments.

The meeting will include a poster session; please consider displaying your recent work. We have all missed having engaging and lively poster sessions during a year of virtual meetings!
