FOM 2020 - Focus on Microscopy 2020

FOM2020 in Osaka will be the continuation of a yearly conference series (since 1988) on the latest innovations and developments in mostly optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences. Please note that this is in the week before Easter 2020.

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 labelling techniques for confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens.

Typical topics of the 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
• Light sheet microscopy
• Phase/interference based microscopies
• OCT, holographic, endoscopy
• 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
• Multi-dimensional fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy imaging
• Correlated microscopies, light/electron, et al.
• Laser manipulation and tracking, photo-activation
• Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy
• 3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data.

A technical exhibition will be an integral part of the upcoming FOM2020 conference.
