Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) has recently re-emerged with the implementation of fluorescence-based instruments, and is on the verge of becoming a major and routine technique in such fields as Developmental Biology, Cell Biology, Systems Biology and Oncology.

Variants include Single Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM), Digitally Scanned Lightsheet Microscopy (DSLM), Ultramicroscopy, Objective-Coupled Planar Microscopy (OCPI), Oblique Plane Microscopy (OPM), Multidirectional SPIM (mSPIM), Bessel-Beam-based Lightsheet Microscopy, and Individual Molecule Localization SPIM (IML-SPIM). Since 2009, a broad community of scientists involved in the development of LSFM has gathered yearly to celebrate the LSFM International Workshop.

You can expect a broad scientific programme covering topics such as:

  • Lightsheet live imaging & applications
  • Lightsheet engineering
  • High-speed, high-resolution, low-light techniques
  • Ultramicroscopy & optical clearing
  • Image analysis & big data challenges
  • Multi-user & open source solutions
