23rd International Conference on 3D Image Processing in Microscopy 22nd International Conference on Confocal Microscopy

Dear Colleagues, After the successful FOM2009 conference held in Krakow, Poland this year, it is a pleasure to announce the next conference Focus on Microscopy 2010. It will take place in Shanghai, China in the week before Easter from Sunday March 28 to Wednesday March 31, 2010. As the next in a series of unique interdisciplinary meetings on advanced multi-dimensional light microscopy and image processing, the conference will be organized under the support of the Shanghai Jiao Tong University in Shanghai at the Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center, in the center of Shanghai. Please note that the conference outing and dinner will take place in the afternoon and evening of the last day (Wednesday) of the conference. This is in contrast to some previous years, where this dinner was arranged earlier in the conference. After the dinner on Wednesday we are planning to attend a Chinese circus performance as part of the outing. Focus on Microscopy 2010 is the continuation of a yearly conference series presenting the latest innovations and new trends in optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine and material sciences. Key subjects are: - the theory and practice of multidimensional optical microscopes, - the high spatial resolution (SIM, STED, PALM, etc.) methods, sophisticated excitation (SHG, Raman, THG, OCS) and fluorescence imaging modes (FRET,FLIM, FRAP, FCS) coming available, - new techniques for functional studies and manipulation of cells and tissues, - automated and high-throughput microscopy techniques, - related image processing and analysis approaches. The conference series is, in addition, known for covering the rapid development of advanced fluorescence labeling techniques for the confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens. Laser based activation, depletion, as well as quenching techniques integrated with 3D microscopy are becoming important tools in cell biology. Abstracts for contributions are invited and can already be submitted through the website: where further information on the present and previous FOM conferences can be found. Important dates: Deadline for the submission of abstracts: January 8, 2010 Acceptance of contributions, draft program: February 1, 2010 Deadline for early registration: February 20, 2010 We welcome you to Shanghai for the FOM2010 conference and exhibition.
