QVision — 1st International Workshop on Quantum Vision
29 Jun 2020 - 30 Jun 2020 • Heraklion, Greece
Organizer:
University of Crete and University of Waterloo
Abstract:
Μodern photonics and quantum optics technology has in recent years made impressive progress in creating novel classical as well as non-classical states of light. Such states have been used to advance spectroscopy, develop new light-based technologies and probe inanimate matter with increased precision. An exciting new direction has been the use of such novel light sources to study living matter, from the cellular level of photoreceptors, to the level of human vision. The 1st Quantum Vision workshop aims to highlight and explore the recent advances that merge photonics and quantum optics with the physiology of human and animal vision. The workshop will facilitate interactions and inspire collaborations between researchers from a broad range of disciplines, such as: quantum optics, biophysics, visual perception and neuroscience, optometry, opthalmology, and even machine vision and human-machine interfaces.

Spatial Organization of Biological Functions
16 Aug 2020 - 19 Aug 2020 • Bangalore, India
Organizer:
Biophysical Society (BPS)
Abstract:
A living organism relies on the interactions of molecular constituents within itself and with its surroundings to function properly. Recent studies have shown that the dynamic spatial organization of different molecular components within a cell, different cells within a tissue, and different organisms within a community, play critical roles in enabling the full functionality of the organism. Furthermore, differential spatial organizations may imply a new level of functional regulation that complements the classic mechanism by molecular interactions. Understanding why and how biological functions are spatially organized requires a concerted effort from scientists of diverse backgrounds.

The Physics of the Emergence of Life
08 Sep 2020 - 09 Oct 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The ultimate aim is to uncover the beginning of biology. Life is abundant around us - plants, microbes, larger animals. This was not the case on early Earth. What processes could allow non-living matter to create the evolutionary machinery of replication, mutation and selection? How could life establish itself so robustly? Even though life on earth likely emerged slowly over billions of years, discovering the combination of mechanisms that enable the emergence of self-reproduction and capacity to evolve in the lab may well be possible on human timescales.

Organizer:
Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology Jena
Abstract:
The last two decades have seen the advent of a variety of super-resolution imaging techniques that provide spatial resolution well below the diffraction limit, approaching virtually molecular detail. Their widespread application is currently transforming biological research enabling new and exciting views on the structural organisation of cells and the dynamics of biomolecular assemblies on different timescales. These revolutionary developments come with novel requirements for fluorescent probes, labelling techniques, and data interpretation strategies. Researchers from across the scientific spectrum are involved in designing improved tools and solving previously intractable problems using super-resolution techniques. We invite you to attend the ‘International Conference On Nanoscopy 2020’, which will uniquely and exclusively focus on super-resolution microscopy and its biological application. Held in Jena, Germany in the summer of 2020, it will bring together an international group of experts to discuss the latest advances and future directions in the field.
