The field of biomedical optics has seen a remarkable growth over the past years. Due to a plethora of new techniques such as optical coherence tomography, lightsheet microscopy, fiber sensors, and multi-photon microscopy, we are able to see and sense tissue in ways never been performed before. This topical meeting focuses on bringing together researchers working on new fundamental image and sensing system improvements and clinicians that apply these techniques in practice.


Topics include (but are not limited to)

  • Tissue optics and spectroscopy
  • Microscopy
  • Optical (coherence) tomography
  • Lightsheet microscopy
  • Endoscopic imaging systems
  • Application of these techniques for (pre-)clinical studies
  • Integrated optics for biomedicine
  • Photoacoustics
