Call for Papers

JenLab Young Investigator Award

We encourage graduate students, postdocs, and scientists or junior faculty who are not more than 32 years old to apply for the JenLab Young Investigator Award. To be eligible for this $2000 cash award, participants must:

  • be both the primary author and presenter of an accepted abstract
  • submit the proceedings paper by the due date, prior to the meeting, for review by the selection committee
  • self-nominate by entering "Jen Lab Young Investigator Award" as a keyword in the abstract
  • All the sunmitted abstracts for this award will be listed for post presentation only. Then, two abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.

Submitted proceedings manuscripts may be resumbitted to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (see here for more details). Prize donated by JenLab GmbH, Germany.

Student Poster Session Competition

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are welcome to participate in the poster session competition of the conference on Multiphoton Microscopy in the Biomedical Sciences. There is a cash award for the winner(s). The winner(s) will be informed in person or by email and should receive the award in person in the conference hall. Participants should follow the rules and regulations of SPIE for submission of their abstract and manuscript. Participants should also register their names for the competition with the Conference Chair during the first day of the conference. Submitted proceeding manuscripts are allowed for resubmission to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (see here for more details). Prize donated by the Conference Sponsors.

Multiphoton microscopy has been established as the 3D imaging method of choice for studying biomedical specimens, from single cells to whole animals, with sub-micron resolution. Two decades have passed since the realization of two-photon microscopy, and the ever-expanding scope of applications and continuing instrumental innovations require a forum where new ideas can be exchanges and presents. Our conference in teh SPIE BiOS 2016 meeting continues to address this need.

Submitted proceedings manuscripts may also be submitted to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (see here for more details). 

Topics include:

  • multiphoton (one- or two- or three- or more photons) microscopy theory and system development
  • multiphoton (MP) in wide-field and laser scanning confocal microscopy
  • infrared lasers for MP systems (femtosecond vs. picosecond vs. CW)
  • tissue engineering, endoscopy and animal imaging/intravital imaging using multiphoton microscopy
  • endogenous molecular (NADH/FAD/Tryptophan) imaging and its applications
  • Raman/SRS/CARS/CRS spectroscopy and microscopy and their applications
  • harmonic generation microscopy (SHG, THG) and its applications
  • light sheet microscopy
  • fluorescence resonance energy transfer imaging (FRET)
  • fluorescence lifetime imaging (frequency and time domain; FLIM) and its applications
  • fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and image cross correlation spectroscopy (FCS, ICCS)
  • flourescence recovery afer photobleaching (FRAP), uncaging and photoactivation
  • various biological applications including developmental, neurobiology, plant biology, calcium and pH imaging
  • photodynamic therapy (PDT) and clinical imaging
  • photo-thermal, -chemical, and -mechanical effects of IR radiation
  • laser safety and other related applications
