The 2nd Open Conference on LSFM

Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (“LSFM”) has recently re-emerged with the implementation of fluorescence-based instruments, and is on the verge of becoming a major and routine technique in such fields as Developmental Biology, Cell Biology, Systems Biology and Oncology.
Variants include Single Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM), Digitally Scanned Lightsheet Microscopy (DSLM), Ultramicroscopy, Objective-Coupled Planar Microscopy (OCPI), Oblique Plane Microscopy (OPM), Multidirectional SPIM (mSPIM), Bessel-Beam-based Lightsheet Microscopy, and Individual Molecule Localization SPIM (IML-SPIM). Since 2009, a broad community of scientists involved in the development of LSFM has gathered yearly to celebrate the LSFM International Workshop.

Also this year, as in the previous 1st LSFM international conference, the community will broaden the impact of the meeting, open to developers, users, scientists and companies. In fact, one of the main goal of the conference is to target developers and users working on or with Light Sheet microscopy.

The conference will feature three days of plenary seminars by experts in the field and presentations of selected abstracts from the scientific community. Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy has been indicated as Method of the Year 2014 by Nature Methods.

We welcome you to join us in Genoa on July 5-8th 2015.
