This year, March 29th -April 1st, the Focus on Microscopy (FOM2015) conference was held in the Lokhalle in Göttingen and was organized by Dr. Gertrude Bunt and Prof. Fred Wouters of the University Medical Center Göttingen. The Lokhalle (German for Locomotive hall), a 6400 square meter former engine shop for the maintenance of locomotive engines, offered both the space and the industrial ambiance for a highly successful meeting. While outside hurricane Niklas was unrooting trees, inside the Lokhalle the floor was also tumultuous with about 1100 participants discussing the newest developments in microscopy and celebrating the unrooting of Abbe's law on optical resolution by the work honored in 2014's Nobel prize for chemistry for super-resolution microscopy (nanoscopy).
