Focus On Microscopy 2016
The next Focus On Microscopy (FOM2016) will take place in Taipei, Taiwan from Sunday March 20 to Wednesday March 23, 2016. The Taiwan conference will start on Sunday afternoon the 20th of March, at 17:30, with a plenary opening session followed by a welcome reception. Prior to the opening, a number of free tutorials are planned for Sunday afternoon starting at 14:00. After the close of the conference on March, 23rd, a conference dinner is planned.
The conference will take place at the NTUH (National Taiwan University Hospital) International Convention Center, No. 2, Xuzhou Road, Zhongzheng District 100, Taipei City, Taiwan.
Details regarding registration, abstract submission, deadlines, etc. will be made available at a later moment on the conference website.
Located in the North of Taiwan, Taipei is a vibrant metropolitan city and the political, economic, educational, and cultural center of Taiwan.
Focus on Microscopy 2016 is the continuation of a yearly conference series presenting the latest innovations in optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine and the material sciences. 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 labeling techniques for confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens.
Typical topics of the present and 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 • 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 nanomaterials, biosensors • OCT, endoscopy • 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 FOM conference.
