This in-person workshop is taking place in Berlin, September 29 – October 1, 2021.
The focus of this workshop lies on ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level as well as beyond the classical diffraction limit. The event provides an interdisciplinary platform for exchanging ideas and recent results between researchers and professionals working in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, life and materials science.
During the workshop, talks and posters are presented that cover a wide range of applications and methods revolving around the challenging field of Single Molecule Spectroscopy.
Covered topics include:
- Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
- Single molecule Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (smFRET)
- Polarization and Anisotropy based techniques
- Quantitative imaging methods
- New fluorescence sensors and labeling schemes
- Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and Fluorescence Lifetime Correlation Spectroscopy (FLCS)
- Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy
- Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (e.g., PALM, STORM, dSTORM, GSDIM, PAINT)
- Open source data analysis solutions
- Big Data and Machine Learning approaches to superresolution and single molecule techniques
Both widefield and confocal fluorescence microscopy techniques are covered as well as in vivo and in vitro measurements with single molecule sensitivity.
We will of course make sure to implement an adequate hygiene concept and will continuously monitor the situation to judge if an in-person meeting can really be held or not. We also understand that it might be difficult for many of you to decide now whether to register now for an in-person meeting at the end of September or not given the current circumstances. To account for that, we are offering generous payment and cancellation terms to everyone.
