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 Extended abstracts will be used only for the purpose of review, and will not be published.

The conference will be devoted to recent developments and applications of biomedical photonics in functional monitoring, imaging, and control of dynamic processes. The goal of the conference is to gather optical and laser engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists, and biomedical professionals along with graduate and undergraduate students to facilitate future progress in the development of optical and laser technologies based on a dynamic sensing approaches to biomedical science and clinical applications.

This approach is intended to enhance technology development toward diagnosis and therapy of wide range of diseases such as those of the heart and vasculature, cancer, psoriasis, and mental illness, and promote a deeper understanding of the role of complex dynamics in biological development across all spatial scales from level of molecule, cell, tissue, and organ to organism and systemic functions.

Keynote and invited presentations will be organized on urgent topics of dynamics and fluctuations in biophotonics. The focus of the Panel Discussion this year will be on Biophotonics of Health Apps.

Papers are solicited on photonics technologies, including diffusion, fluorescence and polarization spectroscopies, OCT, Doppler, speckle, photoacoustics, and nanophotonics with sufficient time resolution for longitudinal estimation, monitoring, imaging and/or controlling of:
  • dynamics, fluctuations and chaos in biology and medicine
  • dynamics and fluctuations in developmental biology
  • analysis of cellular dynamics including cilia
  • brain and eye function
  • optical control of biological functions and dynamic processes
  • dynamics of heartbeat, fibrillary tremor, contractile activity of blood and lymph vessels, etc.
  • bio-vibrations, tremor and breath measuring technologies and instruments
  • microcirculation imaging and angiography
  • dynamic oximetry
  • cell proliferation and aggregation
  • cell drug and dye uptake, nonlinear diffusion of metabolic and exogenous agents and nanoparticles in tissues
  • intracellular flows and contractile activity of cells
  • molecular agents, intelligent particles and collective behavior
  • optical angiography and lymphography
  • tissue and cell optical clearing
  • dynamic signal capture with mobile apps.
