pushing the limits of resolution & speed across modalities - TOPIM TECH 2019

THANKS for an inspiring week in Chania dedicated to RESOLUTION REVOLUTION!

It was a pleasure meeting all of you in Crete . With all the open-minded dicussions, the inspiring, interactive atmosphere, excellent lectures and group work all of you contributed to the success of TOPIM TECH 2019.
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, you have enlarged your network, and it will help you to further contribute to the sucess story of IMAGING SCIENCE.

General TOPIM concept

TOPIM TECH is a series of high level Summer Workshops focussing each year on one hot topic in Imaging Technology.

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 correspondent summer workshop purposefully named TOPIM TECH, was realized for the first time in 2016 focussing on Multiparametric Imaging. After this first inspiring, succesful edition it has been decided to continue. In 2017 the second edition focussed on Optical Imaging, the third edition in 2018 dealt with "Big Data 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.

The overall goal of both TOPIM conferences 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.
