A workshop on the recent progress and future potentials of interferometric and phase-sensitive microscopy

UPDATE (May 8th, 2020)

We are pleased to inform you about the possibility to present a poster/talk at our upcoming internet-based workshop. To present a poster/talk, please upload an abstract (templateuntil May 20th

Here is the way your contributed presentations will work: You will have a slot of the order of one minute (the exact duration will depend on the number of requests we will receive) for  a flash presentation of max. 2 slides. Together with your submitted abstract, this gives an idea of your work. Other participants will then send you a request for an in-depth discussion or presentation to you directly if they are interested to listen to you. You will then make arrangements outside the workshop hours with them. Given the vastly different time zones, you might want to provide two or three different time slots, or communicate with each participant independently.

If your contribution is selected for presentation, please prepare the slides and upload them by May 24th so we can integrate them into the zoom meeting. We will send a link for uploading the slides to the selected participants. We will also put together a program and will notify you about your presentation slot in time.


Update (May 6th, 2020)

We are pleased to inform you that we were able to transform the planned Interferometric Scattering Microscopy Symposium to an internet-based workshop.

To accommodate participation from Asia, Europe and North America, we have chosen two-hour time slots of 15:00-17:00 (Central European Summer Time) on May 26th, 27th and 28th. The first hour will be dedicated to discussions on the pre-recorded talks given by the invited speakers (program will follow soon). These lectures will be available in a password-protected area from May 20th until May 28th. The second hour will be dedicated to presentations by the participants. This is a replacement for the poster session.

We will inform you about the format in the next few days. 

Please follow the workshop homepage for updates and details. 

If you are interested in participating, please register until May 20th. Please note that we might have to limit the number of participation and posters.


Label-free optical imaging and analytical techniques are in high demand in a wide range of applications. Among the various light-matter interactions that can be used for this purpose, elastic scattering is the most fundamental and ubiquitous contrast mechanism. Indeed, several imaging modalities, including bright-field microscopy, dark-field microscopy, phase contrast, DIC, digital holography, interference reflection microscopy, and interferometric scattering microscopy (iSCAT) have exploited the elastic scattering signal from a wide range of samples. 

We are organizing a workshop from the 26th to the 28th of May 2020 to discuss the recent progress and future potentials of elastic scattering with a particular emphasis on interferometric and phase-sensitive methods.
