   Scientific sessions start on Tuesday, April 18, 1995. Original
   contributions will be presented in the following areas:
   
Confocal microscopy

     * theory of confocal imaging
     * scanning confocal designs: point / slit arrangements, beam
       scanning, direct field scanning (bilateral, tandem)
     * high resolution optical 3-D Microscopy
     * two photon and time resolved fluorescence imaging
     * transfer functions and deconvolution
       
Applications

     * confocal microscopy in-vivo: approaches, problems and prospects
     * 3D imaging for agricultural research
     * fluorescence 3-D imaging in cell biology and neurobiology
     * fluorescent probes, in-situ hybridization
     * 3-D cytometry
     * microstructures of materals, polymers and thin films
     * application in environmental sciences
       
Near-field microscopy

     * near-field scanning techniques (NSOM, STM, AFM)
     * high resolution DNA - imaging
     * spectroscopy and surface modification
     * combined near-field and confocal designs
       
Optical tweezers and scalpel

     * instrumentation
     * applications
       
Electron Microscopy

     * low-voltage SEM
     * electron beam tomography
       
X-ray microscopy

     * theory and instrumentation of x-ray microscopy
     * x-ray sources
       
3-D imaging processing

     * 3-D reconstruction of histological, optical and tomographical
       sections
     * visualization models in 3-D and 4-D microscopy

              CONTRIBUTION AND PUBLICATION OF EXTENDED ABSTRACTS
                                       
   Papers are invited for oral and poster presentation from the fields
   indicated by the scientific program and related areas. Deadline for
   submission of abstracts is December 31, 1994. An extented abstract
   (minimum 700 words and maximum 1500 words) is required for each
   presentation, and will be published as a suplement issue of Zoological
   Studies (ISSN 1021-5506). All text will be typeset by the publisher.
   Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscript in electronic forms.
   Files created from the following word processos are acceptable,
   otherwise, please submit your manuscript in ASCII form (both Mac and
   IBM-PC format). Manuscript can also be submitted by e-mail to: elepcc@
   ubvms.cc buffalo.edu, however, a hardcopy has to be sent by mail (or
   faxed) to the address in USA. A hardcopy is required accompany the
   electronic form.
   
   Mac Word, Wordstar, Word Perfect, Microsoft Word, Ventura, ASCII
   
   Figures and photos are permitted, however they have to fit the
   following format specified in the photo and diagram format guide for
   direct photoreproduction. Original photographs (both B&W and color)
   and line drawings are required. If it is possible, authors please
   provide a FAX number to facilatate the transmission of galley proof in
   early 1995. The organizing committee will make a selection of the
   abstracts for oral presentation. By the end of January 1995 authors
   will be notified about acceptance and the final program will be mailed
   to all registrants.
