Hot Topics in Imaging Technology – TOPIM TECH

Imaging Technology Summer Workshop of the ESMI

The success of the ESMI’s winter conference in the French Alps - TOPIMannually held at the Ecole de Physique des Houches - drove the society towards the south and the warmth of the Mediterranean Sea. The idea of a complimentary summer workshop purposefully named TOPIM TECH, is realized for the first time in 2016. It will be held annually in the beautiful city of Chania in the island of Crete.

TOPIM, which is held in the Chamonix valley, is focussing on biology related issues in Imaging Science, while the aim for TOPIM TECH is to start a series of high level summer workshops focussing each year on one hot topic in Imaging Technology.

The overall goal of both TOPIM events is to spend one week at an inspiring place and to provide a platform for intensive discussions and exchange of ideas between high-level international experts, senior, and junior scientists – and to tackle the crucial questions in Imaging Science.

TOPIM and TOPIM TECH aim at bringing scientists from various fields together and providing a “think tank” to foster new ideas and inter-disciplinary cross connections through discussions between participants. By combining expert descriptions of the most up-to-date imaging technologies and/or applications TOPIM and TOPIM TECH contribute in collectively describing the imaging approaches, categorizing them and drawing the landscape of in vivo imaging applied to a specific scientific issue.
