25th International Anniversary Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences”

It’s time for the 25th workshop anniversary!

PicoQuant has invited an impressive line-up of renowned speakers to celebrate this momentous occasion.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of PicoQuant’s annual workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences”. The celebratory event will take place in Berlin from September 3 to 6, 2019. Some of the most renowned and inspiring people from the field of single molecule research will be giving keynote lectures, including two Nobel Prize laureates. Abstracts can be submitted until May 15, 2019, registration is open until July 31, 2019.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Stefan Hell (Max-Plank-Institute, Germany)
  • W. E. Moerner (Stanford University, USA)
  • Xiaoliang Sunney Xie (Peking University, China)
  • Toshio Yanagida (Osaka University, Japan)

In addition to keynote lectures, a series of invited speakers will present their latest work in this field. A number of oral presentations will be selected from abstracts submitted by attendees and poster sessions will round out the event. As Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant explains: “The workshop is an outstanding opportunity to meet not only famous scientists but also to discuss latest results with many bright students. With a dedicated 'student award' we encourage students to submit their work not only in posters but also as contributed talks.”

Since its inception in 1995, this workshop has become a leading venue and interdisciplinary platform for exchanging experiences, information, and recent findings in the field of ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level as well as beyond the classical diffraction limit. The workshop addresses researchers and associated professionals from diverse fields including physics, chemistry, biology, as well as life and materials science.

Open Afternoon
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the workshop, we invite the public to join us for free on Wednesday, September 4, 2019 for one afternoon. The special highlight of this Open Afternoon is a keynote lecture by Nobel laureate Stefan W. Hell entitled “Optical microscopy: the resolution revolution”. The Open Afternoon program includes two sessions featuring talks by reknown scientists as well as a poster session along with a product presentation from PicoQuant.
