Interdisciplinary Symposium on 3D Microscopy 2016

Taking place from October 18-21, 2016 in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, is an interdisciplinary symposium focused on 3D imaging and spectroscopy in science. The objective of this symposium is to create a forum for researchers with different expertise and scientific interests to present their knowhow and the techniques they use to answer their scientific questions. Methods using three-dimensional imaging and spectroscopy to retrieve data in volume will be discussed, whether “light”, x-rays or electrons are used. The conference contains plenary talks and sessions with invited and contributed talks and poster sessions as well as hands-on image processing.
