Dear colleagues,

we would like to announce FOM2022, the next conference in the FOM series. FOM2022 will take place in Porto, Portugal, from Sunday, April 10 to Wednesday, April 13, 2022. Please note that this will be in the week before Easter 2022. After the successful FOM2021 online conference, we are optimistic that the corona situation will again allow an in-person meeting.

The www.FocusOnMicroscopy.org website will be updated soon with relevant information on the upcoming conference. A more detailed (email) announcement, also including sponsor- and exhibition possibilities, will follow in October 2021.

The tutorials presented at FOM2021 are now available on our YouTube channel.

FOM2022 continues a long-standing (since 1988), yearly conference series on the latest innovations and developments in (optical) microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences. FOM is committed to advancing microscopy research and meeting the needs of participants by providing opportunities for sharing work and connecting scientists with the global scientific community.
