    This symposium will provide an international forum for discussions on advanced atomic force microscopy (AFM) and related techniques for liquid-environment applications. The techniques include high-speed AFM, atomic-resolution AFM and SICM while the applications include nanoscale or subnanoscale studies on biomolecules, cells, bioengineering materials, crystal growth, self-assembly and electrochemical reactions.
    This symposium will be organized as a part of the activities in Bio-AFM Frontier Research Center, Kanazawa University. Through this symposium, we aim to expand our international collaboration network as well as to advance our understanding on the instrumentation and applications of in-liquid scanning probe techniques.
