Dear colleagues,

The next conference in the FOM series will take place in Shanghai, China from Sunday March 28 to Wednesday March 31, 2010. Please note that this is in the week before Easter 2010. The conference dinner and circus show will take place in the afternoon/evening of the last day of the conference, 31 March.

The online registration for FOM2010 and hotel booking is available under the Registration and hotel booking button, also at the left of this page. Please note the early registration reduced fee cut-off date of February 20.

New: tutorial workshops are available before the start of the conference on Sunday 28 March, from 14:00 to 16:45. Subjects are:

Participation is free for conference attendees. Click the Program button on the left of this page for details.

The conference will take place at the Shanghai Everbright Convention and Exhibition Center, in the center of Shanghai:

After the successful FOM2009 conference held in Krakow, Poland this year, the present Focus on Microscopy 2010 hosted by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University at the Everbright conventioncenter and hotel. It will start around 6 o'clock in the afternoon on Sunday the 28th with a plenary opening session followed by a welcome reception. You can still view the abstracts of the Krakow contributions under the History button on the left, then select 'FOM 2009', followed by 'program'. With the Search button you can in fact search all the contributions presented in the FOM conferences over the last five years.

Focus on Microscopy 2010 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 is covers also the rapidly advancing fluorescence labeling techniques for the confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens.

Typical topics of the upcoming FOM conference will include:

• Theory and practice of confocal and multiphoton-excitation microscopy’s • 3D and 4D live cell and tissue imaging • Super-resolution, nanoscopy techniques: from PSF engineering (4pi, SIM, STED), fluorescent activation/quenching, stochastic/centroid to TIRF • Time-resolved fluorescence: FRET, FRAP, FLIM, FCS • Coherent non-linear microscopies: SHG, THG, SFG, CARS. • Multi-dimensional fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy imaging • Laser manipulation, ablation and micro-dissection, photo-activation • Applications in Biomedical Engineering (bio- and nanomaterials, biosensors) • OCT, endoscopy, whole animal fluorescence • Automated and high-throughput microscopy techniques • 3D Image processing and visualization for multidimensional data
