Real-time capture and analysis of fast, non-repetitive, dynamical events has long been a challenging problem in the field of instrumentation for biomedical research. Notable examples include momentous efforts on establishing high-speed optical spectroscopy with high spectral resolution and wide spectral range (e.g., Raman spectroscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, THz spectroscopy, and fluorescence detection) and high-speed optical microscopy with high spatial resolution and wide field of view (e.g., light-sheet microscopy, ultrafast imaging, 4D imaging, photoacoustic microscopy, super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, and image cytometry). The development of such high-speed optical instruments is driven by the need for better understanding dynamical processes in biological systems such as neural activity and calcium transport as well as for high-throughput quantitative analysis of heterogeneous cell populations such as blood cells and stem cells. The big data produced by the high-speed optical instruments is well aligned with the pressing need for progressively larger biomedical datasets for efficient and accurate data analysis with the help of machine learning (e.g., deep learning) to make better decisions in biomedical research and clinical diagnosis.

The aim of this Conference is to bring researchers specialized in high-speed optical bioinstrumentation, data management, and high-speed signal/image processing together in a single multidisciplinary forum. With the presentations of the latest developments, this Conference is intended to serve as an arena to promote idea exchanges, interdisciplinary collaborations, and technological advancements in this new and exciting field of high-speed optical bioinstrumentation with focuses on its future trend and development.

This conference intends to cover, but is not limited to, the following topics:

Methods for high-speed optical imaging and spectroscopy Computational methods for signal/image processing and big data management Machine learning for high-speed optical spectroscopy and imaging
