Part of the workshop will be dedicated to the summer school organized within the framework of the Mummering H2020 Marie Curie Training Network.

For the participating MUMMERING students the focus of the workshop lies on electron tomography. This workshop gives the MUMMERING students the necessary theoretical and practical background to achieve the objectives of the MUMMERING project, especially to develop new data acquisition and advanced reconstruction methods of 3D data sets.

The workshop provides a complete hands-on training concerning electron tomography. The students will get a thorough theoretical introduction on transmission electron microscopy, electron tomography and advanced reconstruction algorithms. Next to the theoretical part, the students will have demonstration and hands-on sessions about electron tomography at various transmission electron microscopes. Additionally, the students will follow a practical reconstruction session. They will also have the opportunity to discuss their project with the electron tomography group of EMAT and get insight into ongoing state-of-the-art research in the group. Finally, the students will receive a practical reconstruction assignment which needs to be handed in two weeks after the summer school. They are also expected to hand in a report after the completion of the school. The workshop has the following general outline for the MUMMERING students.
