On behalf of the President Kevin Brindle and the entire Board, it is with pleasure to invite you to Glasgow for the 14th European Molecular Imaging Meeting: the EMIM 2019. We are looking forward to meeting all of you in spring in Great Britain and to learn more about your work in Imaging Science!

People Make Glasgow - People Make the ESMI

Glasgow's slogan fits just perfect with the ESMI: without committed, dedicated, and visionary people it would never be possible to establish an interdisciplinary, innovative imaging community. Let's meet in Glasgow!

Top reasons to visit Glasgow

Officially the world’s friendliest city, you know you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome in Glasgow, and there is so much to explore and enjoy in this beautiful, vibrant city. No matter when you visit, you’ll find world-class visitor attractions, diverse neighbourhoods, stunning architecture, an ever-evolving food and drink scene and legendary nightlife.

This year the New York Times has named Glasgow as one of the top 52 places (that's one every week!) in the world to visit.

Food & Drinks

Glasgow has an ever evolving food and drink scene and Finnieston is considered the city’s ‘foodie quarter’ with a brilliant mix of cool, quality and affordable venues.  Our chefs are able to source some of the best local produce in the world, so it’s no surprise our restaurants are receiving plaudits in influential guides including Conde Nast Traveller's, The Gold List 2018, and the Michelin Guide

When it comes to bars, it’s no longer just about the whisky, Glasgow is firmly part of the craft beer and gin revolution with a number of independent breweries and dedicated gin bars popping up across the city.

Neighbourhoods

Explore the unique and distinct neighbourhoods of Glasgow each with their own personality, vibe and hidden gems.  As Glasgow is a compact city and easy to get around, you can explore more than one neighbourhood in one day.  So you might want to take a bike ride round Pollok Country Park in the Southside in the morning, followed by some lunch and shopping in the City Centre.  Afterwards, head North for a stroll along the banks of the canal then enjoy a late afternoon brewery tour in the East End finished off with dinner in the West End!

Architecture

If you ask a local what to see and do in the city, many will tell you to take a walk and “look up” to really appreciate Glasgow’s rich and varied architectural heritage.  From the medieval Glasgow Cathedral to the Neo-Gothic University of Glasgow – rumoured to be the inspiration for Harry Potter's Hogwarts - to the Art Nouveau wonders of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.   Glasgow’s wealthy past has left a legacy of the finest Victorian architecture in the UK but you only have to take short stroll along the ever-changing riverside to see innovative, cutting-edge designs.

Art

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a pioneering Glaswegian architect and designer and no trip to the city is complete without a visit to one of his magnificent works.  From the Mackintosh House, a collection of items from his original home, to the stunning House for an Art Lover and renowned Glasgow School of Art – considered Mackintosh’s masterpiece.  2018 marks the 150th anniversary of Mackintosh’s birth and a year-long programme of events will take place to celebrate the incredible legacy and creative genius of Glasgow's great cultural icon.  Highlights include a major exhibition ‘Charles Rennie Mackintiosh Making the Glasgow Style’ at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum as well as the opening of Mackintosh at the Willow, Miss Cranston's original Tea Rooms in Sauchiehall Street.
