European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO)

European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO)

25 - 29 June 2017
Messe Munich, Munich, Germany

Sponsored by OSA and SPIE, the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO) bring together scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work with optics and photonics to solve problems in medicine and biomedicine. Presentations will cover basic science, novel technology and applications in the areas of advanced microscopy, clinical and biomedical spectroscopy, diffuse optical imaging, molecular imaging, optical coherence tomography and other coherence techniques, therapeutic laser applications, laser-tissue interactions, opto-acoustic methods, and other novel biophotonics techniques.

ECBO will be held as part of the World of Photonics Congress.  With its conferences, subconferences, short courses, poster sessions and symposia, the World of Photonics Congress covers all reseach disciplines and application facets relevant to optical technologies.  For more information on the World of Photonics Congress click here.

The World of Photonics Congress is traditionally held in conjunction with the international trade fair LASER World of PHOTONICS. All key players and decision-makers come to Munich to meet at the most important marketplace for the photonics industry.  The fair gives participants from more than 70 countries a complete overview of all topics that pertain to optical technologies on 55,000 square meters of exhibition space. The latest milestones in photonics research on the one hand, and a concentrated showcase of the photonics industry on the other: This concept allows participants to experience a unique combination of science, innovative technologies and industrial application sectors.
