The last two decades have seen the advent of a variety of super-resolution imaging techniques that provide spatial resolution well below the diffraction limit, approaching virtually molecular detail. Their widespread application is currently transforming biological research enabling new and exciting views on the structural organisation of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on different timescales. These revolutionary developments come with novel requirements for fluorescent probes, labelling techniques, and data interpretation strategies. Researchers from across the scientific spectrum are involved in designing improved tools and solving previously intractable problems using super-resolution techniques.
We invite you to attend the ‘International Conference On Nanoscopy 2020’, which will uniquely and exclusively focus on super-resolution microscopy and its biological application. Held in Jena, Germany in the summer of 2020, it will bring together an international group of experts to discuss the latest advances and future directions in the field.

"The City of Light in the Green Heart of Germany”
You can find Jena in the middle of Europe and Germany. The city is situated in the federal state Thuringia which is often called the "Green Heart" of Germany.
Jena is a small but lively city with approx. 100,000 inhabitants and 25,000 students among them. It has a nice mixture of tradition and modernism. Since the foundation of the university in 1558, it has been one of the most famous places to study in Germany. Great academics like Goethe and Schiller left their marks here. Thanks to Carl Zeiss, Otto Schott and Ernst Abbe, Jena has developed into a location for high-tech enterprises with effective collaboration between research institutes and economy. The success of Zeiss Microscopes is one example of excellence. Beside the Friedrich Schiller University and the University of Applied Science, there are several non-university research institutions covering many different research fields and attracting scientists from all over the world. Jena was elected Germany's "Science City 2008".
Jena is located at the middle reaches of the river Saale, surrounded with limestone hills up to 400 m in height. Besides its numerous tourist attractions, it offers great opportunities for mountain hiking, cycling and other activities.
In Jena distances don't matter and the quality of life is high. Jena's central location makes it ideal for excursions to Weimar, the city of the German literary classics, Erfurt, the capital of the federal state, or the metropolitan cities Leipzig, Dresden, Berlin or Munich.
