Bordeaux is the capital of the Aquitaine-Limousin-Poitou-Charentes region.
Located in the southern part of France, Bordeaux is a beautiful historical city with it centre listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Bordeaux is also known as the world's major wine capital with its wines having been produced in the region since the 8th century.
The Bordeaux area is also remarkable for its research in Microscopy and more generally in BioImaging, involving strongly interrelated research fields such as laser, photonics, neuroscience, cancer science, plant research, etc.. Their excellence was confirmed through their contribution to placing the University of Bordeaux among the three universities definitively labelled in France as “Initiative for Excellence” in 2016.
Focus on Microscopy 2017 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, SOFI • New fluorescence probes, proteins, quantum dots, single molecule imaging • Clearing and expansion techniques • 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 • OCT, endoscopy • Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy • 3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data
At the 2017 conference the topic “Single object - molecule, Quantum Dot, Nanotube- based imaging will receive special attention.
A technical exhibition will be an integral part of the upcoming FOM conference.
