We are proud to welcome you to SPIE's Fourth International Symposium on Fluctuations and Noise. With four parallel conferences covering all aspects of noise-related research, the Symposium organizers have sought to reflect the truly interdisciplinary nature of this emerging and dynamic field.
This year the SPIE Fluctuations and Noise Symposium features nearly 300 presentations from around the globe. The increasing importance of this Symposium as a forum serving the exchange of ideas and interaction among colleagues is a reflection of the growing stature of noise research in the physical and life sciences-and of your hard work and continuing participation.
We welcome you to Florence for this year's event!
