Call for
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 submitted abstracts for this award will be listed for poster presentation only. Then, two abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.
  • The winner will receive $1500 and the runner-up $500.
Submitted proceedings manuscripts may be resubmitted to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (please visit for 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 must 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 Chairs during the first day of the conference. Submitted proceeding manuscripts are allowed for resubmission to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (please visit for 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 exchanged and presented. Our conference in the SPIE BiOS 2018 meeting continues to address this need.

Submitted proceedings manuscripts may also be submitted to the Journal of Biomedical Optics (please visit for 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 or in vivo imaging using multiphoton microscopy
  • endogenous molecular (NADH/FAD/Tryptophan) imaging, energy metabolism 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)
  • fluorescence recovery after 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.
