Call for
Submissions to this conference must include:
  • 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.

  • Advanced optical-molecular imaging applied to surgical guidance has emerged over the last decade as a major sector of Biomedical Optics with a growing impact and increasing numbers of clinical devices and procedures. Molecular-guided surgery relies on imaging specific markers in vivo, whether exogenous (e.g. fluorescence) or endogenous (e.g. hemoglobin), and allows healthcare practitioners to visualize features and function of tissue, in addition to the standard anatomical structures. This field requires a broad range of expertise including instrumentation, chemistry, biology, physics, tracer kinetics and clinical translation.

    The number of investigators working in this specific field has grown from just a few individuals to hundreds of research groups today. This new conference aims to consoildate related work into one forum with the goals of pooling expertise and allowing the community to follow and contribute to the field's progress while offering strong potential for discussions and collaborations.

    Submissions are solicited in the following and related areas:
    • contrast agents and molecular probes
    • devices and methods – fluorescence imaging
    • devices and methods – endogenous imaging
    • preclinical applications
    • clinical translation
    • clinical applications.
