SPECIAL ABSTRACT REQUIREMENTS: PEER REVIEW
Submissions to this conference are due no later than 3 August 2024 (later than the main BIOS due date) and must include the following:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program)
  • 250-word text abstract (for technical review)
  • 3-page PDF summary (for committee review). The 3-page summary should expand on the abstract to include a technical summary of the work and may include equations, figures, and references. 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 translation. Directions of research and development in areas such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), low-coherence interferometry, speckle-based measurement and imaging technologies, coherent light microscopy, and coherence technologies for novel-contrast imaging including flow, polarization and intrinsic tissue functional imaging will be considered. The image processing methods and the clinical translation of the coherence domain optical methods will also be discussed.

This conference will feature a dedicated memorial session for Joseph Izatt and will include some of his closest collaborators, past students, and post docs.

Papers are solicited on the following and related topics: ;
