Plan now to submit your work

SPIE Structured Light 2018 is a cross-disciplinary symposium on the technologies of structured light and bio-imaging. The event combines important topical areas including structured optical fields, optical trapping, beam shaping, and other novel techniques. Many of these next-generation technologies are applied in the world of biology and biomedicine, so there is a special focus on biomedical imaging and sensing applications.

Structured Light is organized in two parallel conferences: Optical Manipulation Conference (OMC) and Biomedical Imaging and Sensing Conference (BISC). These two conferences comprise the full spectrum of structured light technologies and biomedical imaging applications. OMC and BISC join ten other technical conferences in the Optics and Photonics International Congress in Yokohama, Japan, in April 2018.

Authors can submit their work to either OMC or BISC conferences depending on their area of research. Please review the conference calls for papers to see the full range of technology topics and find the conference that best fits your work. The chairs will organize parallel conference programs, including joint sessions that will highlight specific examples of novel structured light techniques for biomedical imaging applications.

Submit your work to join the industry leaders who are advancing these exciting topics. Please join us next April in Yokohama!
