Focus on Microscopy 2022
April 10 - 13, 2022
we would like to announce FOM2022, the next conference in the FOM series. FOM2022 will take place in Porto, Portugal, from Sunday April 10 to Wednesday April 13, 2022. Please note that this will be in the week before Easter 2022. At this point, we are optimistic that the corona situation will again allow an in-person meeting.
FOM2022 continues a long-standing (since 1988), yearly conference series on the latest innovations and developments in (optical) microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences.
The Porto conference will start on Sunday morning April 10 with free tutorials, followed by parallel sessions, Flash poster presentations and a plenary opening session with invited speakers at the end of the afternoon. The first day will be closed with a welcome reception. The tentative program will be available later this year, and can be found under "Program" on this web site. A guided walking tour of the sights of Porto’s historical center and a conference dinner are planned after the closing of the conference on Wednesday, April 13th.
The FOM2022 Porto conference venue will be:
Centro de Congressos da Alfândega do Porto
Rua Nova da Alfândega
Edifício da Alfândega
If you wish to be kept informed on updates, please leave your email address at FocusOnMicroscopy.org/stayinformed. A more detailed announcement will be sent in September of this year.
Topics of the upcoming FOM conference include:
• Theory and practice of confocal and multiphoton-excitation microscopy • Super-resolution, nanoscopy imaging: from PSF engineering (4pi, SIM, STED), fluorescence 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, holography, endoscopy • Advanced fluorescence imaging/spectroscopy: FRET, FRAP, FLIM, FCS, SOFI • New fluorescent 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 e.g. light/electron • Laser manipulation and tracking, photo-activation • 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. Detailed information about the previous FOM conferences of the last 20 years can be found on this website under the “History” button. From 2004 onwards also with one page abstracts of the presented contributions. Please note also the "Search FOM database" button for full searches through the whole FOM archive over the years.
