Focus on Microscopy 2015

  • Focus on Microscopy, March 29 - April 1, 2015, Göttingen, Germany

After the successful FOM2014 conference held in Sydney, Australia this year, it is a pleasure to announce FOM2015, the next Focus on Microscopy conference. It will take place in Göttingen, Germany in the week before Easter from Sunday March 29 to Wednesday April 1, 2015. Focus on Microscopy 2015 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 FOM2015 conference will take place at the Lokhalle conference venue close to the center and direct at the railway station of Göttingen. The conference starts around 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon on Sunday March 29 with a plenary opening session followed by a welcome reception. A technical exhibition will accompany the Göttingen, 2015 conference.

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

• 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
• 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 2015 conference the topic "Super-resolution techniques and applications" will receive special attention, this also in connection with the recently awarded Nobel Prize in this field.
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 Göttingen, for the FOM2015 conference and exhibition, the FOM2015 organizing committee:
• Gertrude Bunt, University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany
• Fred Wouters, University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany
• Fred Brakenhoff, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Göttingen conference FOM2015 incorporates the:
• 28th International Conference on 3D Image Processing in Microscopy
• 27th International Conference on Confocal Microscopy

Deadline for abstract submission: Tuesday, January 20, 2015
