Call for

Submissions to this conference must include the following:
  • 100-word text abstract (for online program)
  • 250-word text abstract (for abstract digest)
  • 2-page extended abstract (for committee review only). The extended abstract must be submitted as a separate PDF document limited to two pages, including tables and figures. Include author names and affiliations; text; any figures; tables, or images; and sufficient data to permit committee review.

    All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee to determine acceptance. Extended abstracts will be used only for the purpose of review, and will not be published.

  • Wavefront engineering has greatly expanded the capability of optical microscopy and measurements in biological systems. Recent breakthroughs in measuring and controlling optical wavefront have led to many important applications, including deep tissue microscopy with improved imaging quality and depth, optical tweezers with sophisticated shape and momentum distribution, and three-dimensionally patterned optogenetic excitation. This conference will bring together leading experts in a variety of research fields that employ innovative wavefront control technologies for biomedical applications.

    Technical papers concerning the following aspects of adaptive optics are appropriate for submission and consideration:
    • adaptive optics for microscopy, optical coherence tomography and ophthalmology
    • guide-star probes for wavefront measurement and light guiding in biological tissues
    • imaging neural connectivity and function deep in brain tissue
    • focusing light through scattering tissues (optimization, transmission matrix)
    • imaging with multimode fibers
    • wavefront shaping for photoacoustic and acousto-optical imaging
    • applications of time-reversal and optical phase conjugation in biological imaging
    • mesoscopic effects and their applications to imaging and light delivery (open channels, memory effect)
    • shaped beams for light sheet and structured illumination microscopy
    • computational optical imaging techniques
    • wavefront shaping devices (deformable mirrors, spatial light modulators, MEMS, active lenses).
