The Society was founded to meet the growing demands of microbeam analysis users and scientists for further education, communication and professional advice. The Society is independent, but co-operates closely with national and international microbeam analysis groups, and other European societies with related interests. EMAS is a founding member of IUMAS, the International Union of Microbeam Analysis Societies. The Society is a nonprofit making organisation registered in Germany. Every two years the Society holds a European Workshop, using a format based on tutorial keynote lectures and round-table discussions. Participants can also present their work in poster sessions. The Society also organises smaller scale Regional Workshops in the years between the European Workshop.
