ABOUT ICON

1/3

“There are many optical microscopy and photonics conferences out there. So do we really need another one?

I feel that we do and that there is a distinct need for a specialized super-resolution microscopy conference, especially after the 2014 Nobel-prizes. In this sense, the creation of ICON in 2015 was timely”

Markus Sauer

1st chair of ICON (2016), University of Würzburg

What is ICON?

ICON is intended as a specialized platform in which scientists, both developers and users, engineers, and manufacturers can meet to present the latest developments and applications, to discuss caveats and potential problems, to develop novel ideas, and forge new and strengthen existing collaborations.

 

Currently ICON focuses on fluorescence-based super-resolution microscopy (SRM) and its application in scientific research and takes place every 2 years. In the future an alternating timeline may be possible in which a fluorescence-based SRM ICON alternates with an ICON that focuses on label-free and white light SRM.
