Introduction: Technological breakthroughs for imaging utilizing electron, ion, photon X-rays, and probe are dramatically advancing our ability to characterize materials in both the physical and life sciences. The symposium aims to both experimental as well as theoretical contributions in the area of instrumentation, methodology and software which advances our ability to characterize both hard and soft matter in all regimes. Furthermore, electron microscopy (EM) is the most important technique in materials characterization. There have been continuous development and progress on related sample preparation, resolution and characterization methods. Among which, in situ EM has been rapidly developed and valued in recent years, being utilized for dynamic materials studies. Under different environments, such as atmospheres, stress, electric field, thermal and chemical, it allows simultaneous structural observation and property measurements to obtain the information for the reactions and phenomena; it is a particularly strong technique for kinetics and obtaining time-related information. Additionally, other in-situ characterization techniques, including X-ray, e-beam irradiation, synchrotron and optical microscopy, are worth exploring as well. Thus, the sessions will focus on the latest in situ characterization techniques and novel instrumental methodologies.
