Join us @Focus on Microscopy 2021
FOM2021 in Porto will be the continuation of a yearly conference series (since 1988) on the latest innovations and developments in mostly optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences. Please note that this is in the week before Easter 2021.
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 upcoming FOM 2021 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 • Light sheet microscopy • Phase/interference based microscopies, • OCT, holographic, endoscopy • Advanced fluorescence imaging/spectroscopy: FRET, FRAP, FLIM, FCS, SOFI • New fluorescence probes, proteins, quantum dots, single molecule imaging • Clearing and expansion techniques. • Coherent non-linear microscopies: SHG, THG, SFG, CARS. • Multi-dimensional fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy imaging • Correlated microscopies, light/electron, et al. • Laser manipulation and tracking, photo-activation • Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy • 3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data
At present it is not clear if/what Covid-19 Pandemic restrictions are in effect in the period of the conference. Therefore, the precise details of the format of the FOM 2021 conference are not clear yet. However, we aim to hold the conference on location in Porto as planned. Please keep an eye on the FOM website and your e-mail for updates.
