SPECIAL ABSTRACT REQUIREMENTS: PEER REVIEW
Submissions to this conference are due no later than 5 August 2019 (later than the main BIOS due date) and must include the following:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program)
  • 250-word text abstract (for abstract digest)
  • 3-page PDF summary (for committee review). Expanded content is not necessary and will not be considered; please limit your summary to 3 pages.


Optical coherence tomography and other optical methods and instruments based on coherent light interactions with tissues and detection methods are promising for noninvasive medical diagnostics and monitoring a wide spectrum of pathologies as well as fundamental biomedical research. The focus of this conference will be on the physical and mathematical basis of coherence domain methods, new instrumentation and techniques and their applications in biomedical science and clinical practice. Directions of research and development in areas such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), low-coherence interferometry, speckle and speckle interferometry measurement and imaging technologies, polarized light diagnostic methods, coherent light microscopy, and coherence technologies for flow and functional imaging will be considered. Applications of coherence domain optical methods for biological studies and clinical applications will also be discussed.

Papers are solicited on the following and related topics:
  • optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems, theory, image processing techniques in OCT
  • spectral/Fourier domain and swept source OCT
  • optical coherence microscopy (OCM) full-field OCT
  • molecular, spectroscopic and functional OCT
  • Doppler and polarization-sensitive OCT
  • OCT angiography
  • phase-contrast techniques
  • novel light sources for OCT
  • imaging devices and probes for OCT
  • low-coherence interferometry and topography
  • white-light interferometry
  • novel contrast mechanisms
  • clinical applications of OCT
  • ophthalmic applications
  • cardiovascular and intravascular applications
  • cancer imaging
  • endoscopic imaging
  • small animal imaging
  • developmental biology.
