PicoQuant Announces 21st International Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-Resolution Microscopy

The 21st International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences” will take place from September 2 to 4, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. The annual event, organized by PicoQuant, brings together users as well as developers from Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. It provides an interdisciplinary platform for experienced and young scientists to share their research and developments in ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level and below the classical diffraction limit.

Poster session

Eight distinguished researchers will present their recent findings in the field of ultrasensitive spectroscopy. Contributed oral presentations and a poster session complete the workshop program. A welcome reception and a dinner give participants the opportunity for further discussions with the invited speakers and the other attendees. Invited speakers are Hermann Gaub, Katharina Gaus, Taekjip Ha, Theo Lasser, Atsushi Miyawaki, Felix Ritort, Philip Tinnefeld, and Viola Vogel.

Abstracts can be submitted until June 7, 2015.
Registration is open until August 15, 2015.

Date: September 2-4, 2015
