Trends in Microscopy: Grasping Higher Dimensions

Date:22.02.2016, 09:00 - 24.02.2016, 18:00
Location: CRTD
Host: BioDIP & German BioImaging

The conference brings together leading high-end microscope techniques
developers and users from Germany with their world-wide colleagues.

The focus will be put on imaging techniques in higher dimensions -
space, phase, and time:

* Optogenetics
* Adaptive Optics / Deep Tissue Imaging
* 3D Electron Microscopy
* Phase and Holographic Imaging
* New and Notable Techniques

We have an excellent selection of invited speakers, please check the
website for the current list.

Registration is open and obligatory (100 € for scientists; 30 € for

A small company exhibition will be on site.

TIM 2016 is organized by the Biopolis Dresden Imaging Platform (BioDIP)
and German BioImaging, and is supported by the German Research
Foundation (DFG).
