Nanotech Europe 2009, an annual conference and exhibition on nanotechnology will be held in Berlin, Germany from September 28-30, 2009. The event offers a broad, interdisciplinary overview of nanotechnology, and the opportunity to meet and discuss with the field’s top scientists and international companies in the nanotechnology community. The fifth Nanotech Europe has a broad scope, covering leading-edge research, industrial applications and cross-cutting topics including electronics, photonics, materials, health and bio, instrumentation, energy as well as safety and investment. In total, 36 sessions will be held by over 180 speakers from both academia and industry.

Microscopy has contributed immensely to the development of modern biology since 1665 when Robert Hooke published his book „Micrographia“ depicting a large number of microscopical sketches. In our days a major breakthrough in biology is the discovery of the green fluorescent protein (GFP). Another important innovation was found by the german scientist Stefan Hell from Göttingen. He received for example the „Leibniz Preis“ of the German research community (DFG) for „light microscopy with unknown clarity“. These methods enable the visualization of nanoscopic structures in living cells.
Similar high magnification microscopic plus latest electronmicroscopic techniques are also being developed in the department of physics at the University of Bielefeld. A third building block will lead from August 25-28, 2009 from microscopy to imaging.
The topics include:
– Beyond Optical Microscopy
– High Resolution Microscopy in Biology
– From Life Cell Imaging to Systems Biology
– Bioimaging Informatics
The registration is open until July 11, 2009.
