Plan now to participate!

The use of optical techniques and tools in biomedical imaging, diagnostics and therapeutics has been in continuous expansion for several decades. The research being produced in this field requires presentation and review at major conferences, and specifically it is important to allow co-location with large technology exhibits. The European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) have become the largest such event in Europe for researchers, scientists, engineers and clinicians who are developing applications of optical science and photonic technologies to problems in biomedical science and medicine.

This meeting provides a forum to span the gap between basic research and instrumentation engineering, all the way to clinical translation research and mature clinical trials. The common theme of the conferences is that they all are employing optics as a tool or solution in biology, medicine or clinical work. This meeting is biennial and jointly sponsored by the Optical Society and SPIE and will be co-located with Laser Munich 2019-World of Photonics, as well as numerous other society meetings organized by WLT, EOS, OSA, CLEO-Europe, IEEE/LEOS, and EPS.
