Call for
This conference is a venue for advances in multidimensional microscopy, including confocal, fluorescence, polarization and nonlinear microscopy, with coherent and partially coherent systems. While many of the instruments are oriented toward biomedical imaging, the scope includes applications such as materials science, industrial inspection, and nanoscale metrology. Many microscopes are now fully integrated systems, including computer hardware and software. It is hoped that the broad range of relevant topics being presented at this conference will serve to encourage interaction among instrumentation engineers, computer image analysts, and researchers in the various fields of application.

We consider papers that cover overall system design, as well as more specialized areas: optical image formation, image recording, deconvolution and image restoration in two, three, or more dimensions, image classification, and digital methods of producing and displaying the resulting reconstruction. We especially encourage submission of articles on novel optical and digital techniques for imaging or detecting nanoscale object features, coherence-based imaging and image reconstruction, and full-field quantitative phase imaging, including hardware, models, algorithms and applications.

A unique aspect of the multidimensional microscopy conference is that, while the conference is organized within the BIOS program, applications extend far beyond biomedical. A typical program includes in-depth description of new instrumental methods (for example, innovative use of coherence and illumination), computational methods, and also examples of the use of multidimensional microscopy both in biological and nonbiological systems. The 'multiple dimensions' can be spatial dimensions, but can also include spatiotemporal imaging, polarization imaging, phase imaging, etc. Many instrumental innovations that now have entire conferences devoted to their use had their origins within the multidimensional microscopy conference.
