FOM2017 - Focus on Microscopy

30th International Conference on 3D Image Processing in Microscopy

29th International Conference on Confocal Microscopy

Focus on Microscopy 2017 is the continuation of a yearly conference series presenting the latest innovations in optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine and the material sciences. The conference will start on Sunday morning 9th of April with a number of free tutorials, with parallel sessions and flash poster presentations starting at 14h00. Around 17h30, a plenary opening session with invited speakers is scheduled followed by a welcome reception.

Key subjects for the conference series are the theory and practice of 3D optical imaging, related 3D image processing, and reporting especially on developments in resolution and imaging modalities. The conference series covers also the rapidly advancing fluorescence labeling techniques for confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens.

Typical topics of the present and upcoming FOM conference will include:

•  Theory and practice of confocal and multiphoton-excitation microscopy;

•  Super-resolution, nanoscopy imaging: from PSF engineering (4pi, SIM, STED), fluorescent activation/quenching, stochastic/centroid (PALM, STORM, GSDIM, SOFI and related techniques) to TIRF;

•  3D and 4D live cell and tissue imaging;

•  Adaptive optics for microscopy;

•  Developments in phase/interference microscopies;

•  Light sheet microscopy;

•  Advanced fluorescence imaging/spectroscopy: FRET, FRAP, FLIM, FCS, SOFI;

•  New fluorescence probes, proteins, quantum dots, single molecule imaging;

•  Clearing and expansion techniques;

•  Coherent non-linear microscopies: SHG, THG, SFG, CARS;

•  Developments in phase/interference microscopies;

•  Multi-dimensional fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy imaging;

•  Correlated light/electron microscopy;

•  Laser manipulation and tracking, photo-activation;

•  OCT, endoscopy;

•  Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy;

•  3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data.

At the 2017 conference the topic “Single object - molecule, Quantum Dot, Nanotube- based imaging will receive special attention. A technical exhibition will be an integral part of the upcoming FOM conference.
