Registered deligates, who wish to participate in the Metallography Contest, may submit entries for one of the following categories.
- (a) Light Microscopy
- (b) Transmission Electron Microscopy
- (c) Scanning Electron Microscopy
- (d) Scanning Probe Microscopy
The contestants must carefully choose and specify the category of the entry, which will be unique and final. No reclassification will be done by the contestant or the judges afterwards. The micrographs may be in colour or in black & white. Winners for the best etallographs will be decided on the basis of technical content, aesthetics (visual aspect) and expertise of the techniques. Detailed instructions for preparation of the entries can be found on the conference website.
