Conference topics

  • techniques and methods of single molecule (SM) detection 
  • techniques and methods of SM spectroscopy (such as FCS, FLCS, FLIM, FRET)
  • techniques and methods for fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) with one, two, or three photon excitation
  • techniques of single molecule manipulation
  • superresolution fluorescence imaging (STED, PALM, (d)STORM, GSD-IM, SOFI, SIM and related techniques) 
  • labels and markers for single molecule techniques like ultrastable organic molecules, photoswitchable molecules/proteins, nanodiamonds, etc.
  • advanced fluorescence imaging like (time-resolved) two- and three-photon fluorescence microscopy or (time-resolved) Raman spectroscopy
  • multi-modal SM detection such as combining AFM with confocal microscopy
  • correlative microscopy such as combining optical and electron microscopy
  • fundamental aspects of SM spectroscopy
  • biophysical applications of SM spectroscopy and imaging
  • medical applications of SM spectroscopy and imaging
  • ultrasensitive biomedical diagnostics
  • high-throughput screening applications
  • chemical and biochemical sensing photonic materials for ultrasensitive optical detection
  • microfluidics and capillary devices. 
  • ...

Young Investigator Award

As a special motivation for young researchers, PicoQuant is presenting the "Young Investigator Award" as part of this meeting. Young scientists (age 30 or below and not yet full faculty members) are encouraged to participate in our best paper competition which offers a 750 USD cash award.
