The advancements in biophotonics and imaging have led to many of the step change discoveries in medicine and biosciences. Innovations in instrumentation, methodologies and analytical methods drive the evolution of this discipline enabling deeper insights into life sciences. Topical challenges in imaging include improving resolution, speed, information, throughput and depth which are required to improve fundamental biological understanding, diagnostic accuracy, early detection and prognostic capability for timely interventions and improving health and well-being. New imaging modalities, advances in optical hardware, the ongoing evolution of improvements in algorithms and the introduction of AI/ML in data collection and analysis all combine to provide exciting new capabilities to overcome the above challenges and to provide solutions in biomedicine and health. This conference provides a forum for the international research community in academic, industry and government labs to disseminate and discuss the latest findings on research frontiers and emerging biophotonics technologies. Authors are encouraged to submit original papers related to all aspects of biophotonics and imaging with the following topics being of particular interest for inclusion in this conference:
  • Label-free microscopy
  • Non-linear imaging
  • Deep tissue imaging
  • Volumetric imaging
  • Integrated biophotonics
  • Correlative imaging, particularly as it applies between different optical techniques/instruments and scales
  • Multiscale imaging
  • Micro-endoscopy including methods and instrumentation combined with label-free and non-linear imaging techniques
  • New approaches in Adaptive Optics for Imaging/Microscopy
  • Novel physics-based artificial intelligence (AI) in imaging
  • Computational analytics in imaging/microscopy
  • Artificial intelligence in optical systems design and architecture

The conference will be comprised of sessions consisting of contributed talks, invited presentations and a poster session to encourage networking, discussion and sharing of information. Two poster awards, one voted on by the conference program chairs and committee members and another voted on by conference delegates, will be given to student authors at the conclusion of the conference.
