In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Israel Society of Microscopy (formerly the Israel Society of Electron Microscopy) we will take a chronological look at the people and events that have shaped the ISM since its inception in 1964.

The history of the Society can be viewed through the scientific achievements of its members and can be divided into four periods: 1. The Founding Fathers 2. The Intermediate Generation 3. The Consolidation Generation 4. The Modern Generation.

We will highlight the unique achievement of the Society which hosted the 6th European Congress on Electron Microscopy in Jerusalem in 1976.

We will pay tribute to Society members no longer with us but whose seminal scientific contributions endure. We will recognize a pinnacle achievement in the award of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Prof. Dan Schechtman of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

We will pay tribute to the Officers of the Society from its inception until the present day.
