Biomedical Imaging Technologies
Chair: Fei Xia, The Kastler–Brossel Laboratory, École Normale Supérieure, France
This comprehensive track will highlight emerging state-of-the-art optical imaging methods for biological and medical applications presented by leading experts in the field and fostering valuable interactions.
Invited Speaker: Sixian You, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA
Smart Data-Driven Imaging
Chair: Estibaliz Gómez-de-Mariscal, Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Portugal
Smart data-driven imaging (SDDI) technology builds upon the ability to monitor image data on-the-fly and computationally control the acquisition system to create automatic and adaptive imaging setups. For this session, we welcome topics that lie in the intersection between photonics, life sciences, artificial intelligence, microscopy, and computer vision and are tailored for SDDI.
Invited Speaker: Dr. Pontus Nordenfelt, Lund University, Sweden
Chair: Gordon Zyla, Institute of Electronic Structure & Laser, Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (IESL-FORTH), Greece
This track focuses on the exciting advances in LAM for 2D and 3D processing at the micro- and nanoscale. It involves discussing the utilization of light-based fabrication technologies, including new materials and post-processing methods, to fabricate structures and novel architectures with high-resolution suitable for thrilling applications in optics, microfluidics, (bio-)photonics, and more.
Invited Speaker: Dr. Mangirdas Malinauskas, Vilnius University, Lithuania
Chair: Danielle Harper, Harvard Medical School and the Wellman Center for Photomedicine, United States
From new optical developments to applications of the techniques, this track is a showcase of recent advancements across the whole field of Optics and Photonics and the influence they have on society.
