Time-Resolved Microscopy Course

10th European Short Course on “Time-resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy”

March 6-8, 2018 in Berlin, Germany

Image Time-Resolved Microscopy Course 2018

Aim and purpose

Lecture during the 5th microscopy courseThe course is intended for individuals wishing an in-depth introduction to the principles of time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. Attendees are usually professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence microscopy in their research. Most attendees have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, other individuals from totally different research areas and from industry get the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and benefit especially from the experimental section.

Practical sessions

Practical session on a MicroTime 200 STEDPractical sessions using confocal microscopes provided by several market leading companies are part of the course:

  • Leica
  • Nikon
  • Olympus
  • Zeiss
  • PicoQuant

Participants will be divided into groups that rotate through the stations. This ensures that every participant will have the chance to familiarize himself with the broad range of techniques and methods of fluorescence (lifetime) microscopy.

Topics covered

Topics covered during the lectures and experimental station include:

Financial support

As in the previous years, PicoQuant will grant a fee waiver to a few participants from the university and academic sector of economically less privileged countries. Accommodation, travel and personal expenses still need to be paid by the participants themselves. The selection of sponsored people is completely the sole decision of PicoQuant and there is no right or guarantee to receive a fee waiver.

The fee structure as well as terms and conditions for payment will be released at a later date.

Details on the fee waiver application process will be published at a later date.

The deadline to apply for a fee waiver has passed. We can no longer accept any fee waiver applications.

To apply for a fee, please send us your application:

  • a letter of application
  • a formal letter of recommendation from your department/institute

Deadline for a fee waiver application is November 13, 2017.

Please note that only one person per research group can be considered for a fee waiver.

 

Accommodation

We have negotiated special rates for a limited number of rooms in three hotels. The number of rooms and the booking time are limited and we therefore advise to reserve your room as soon as possible.

City Tax

Please note that since the beginning of the year 2014, tourists staying overnight in Berlin are subject to paying an accommodation tax, the so-called City Tax. It amounts to five percent of the room rate (net price), excluding VAT and fees for amenities and services such as mini-bar, sauna, or spa area. The City Tax does only affect private overnight stays and NOT business travellers. The business purpose of a trip can be verified by a bill that is paid by or issued to the employer, or a letter from the company. If the accommodation is booked by the employer in the first place, there is no further proof necessary.
