Trends in Microscopy: Bridging the Worlds
Düsseldorf, Germany, March 12-15, 2018
The conference Trends in Microscopy 2018: Bridging the Worlds (TIM2018) will take place on 12-15 March 2018 in Düsseldorf and is co-organized by German BioImaging-Society for Microscopy and Image Analysis (GerBI-GMB), University of Konstanz, and the local organizers Dr. Stefanie Weidtkamp-Peters (Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf) and Dr. Astrid Schauss (University of Cologne).
The conference series centers on the exchange between imaging technology developers from academia, life scientists who apply imaging techniques, and the commercial sector. The focus of the 2018 conference is to represent the trend of building bridges: on the technical side by combining e.g. various super-resolution microscopy methods, on the side of sample preparation by closing the gaps in sample dimensions and complexity between single cells and 2-dimensional cell layers and whole organisms by e.g. engineering organoids and tissue cultures. On top, the conference aims to bridge “the virtual gap in mind” between acquisition of imaging data and image analysis. Therefore, the resulting topics are Bridging the Worlds, Tissue Architecture, Functional Imaging, and, of course, Image Analysis. 20 invited speakers from Europe, America, and Australia will present their latest results.
In addition, presentations from young researchers, PhD-students and postdocs, will be chosen from abstracts. The exhibition area and also the workshops given by companies facilitate the interaction between academia and industry. The two-and-a-half-day conference is succeeded by the General Assembly of GerBI-GMB, and on 15th of March by the traditional GerBI Core Facility Managers community meeting.
The conference series Trends in Microscopy was initiated by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in 2005 and has since then taken place approximately every other year. GerBI-GMB has taken over the TIM as the bi-annual scientific conference of the newly established society.
