After the successful FOM2013 conference held in Maastricht, the Netherlands this year, it is a pleasure to announce Focus On Microscopy 2014. It will take place in Sydney, Australia in the week before Easter from Sunday April 13 to Wednesday April 16, 2014.

Focus on Microscopy 2014 is the continuation of a yearly interdisciplinary conference series running now for well over two decades. It presents the latest innovations and new trends in multi-dimensional light microscopy, super-resolution and image processing together with their application in biology, medicine and material sciences.

The FOM2014 conference will take place at the University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia.

The conference starts around 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon on Sunday April 13 with a plenary opening session followed by a welcome reception. A technical exhibition will accompany the Sydney 2014 conference. Deadline for abstract submission: Wednesday, January 14, 2014.

A wide range of microscopy and microscopy related subjects will be addressed, ranging from the physics of super-resolution spatial image formation to the advanced use of fluorescent probes in -live- cellular biophysics. With its origin and focus in sectioned confocal/2-photon microscopy the conference also signals important developments in neighboring fields

Topics of the FOM Conference Series 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 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
• New fluorescence probes, proteins, quantum dots, single molecule imaging
• 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
• Bio- and nano-materials, biosensors
• OCT, endoscopy
• Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy
• 3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data

At the 2014 conference the topic "Correlated and integrated light electron microscopy" will receive special attention.

The conference series is known for covering the rapid development of advanced fluorescence labeling techniques for the confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging and single molecule imaging in live biological specimens.

Welcoming you to the FOM2014 conference and exhibition, on behalf of the FOM 2014 organizing committee:
