Something *finally* came in today from the Confocal Mailing List -

Thought a few of you might be interested.

The next International Conference on Confocal Microscopy and 3D Image           
Processing will be held in Sydney, Australia.  This meeting is the              
successor to the well-established series of International Conferences           
on Confocal Microscopy, and on 3D Image Processing in Microscopy.  It           
is the first occasion that this important scientific meeting will be            
held in the Southern Hemisphere, where it will be combined with the             
Symposium of the Image Analysis Society of Australia.

Scientific Programme                                                            
This international meeting will bring together world experts to                 
examine new techniques for the acquisition and analysis of 3D images,           
with particular emphasis on confocal and other microscopic                      
applications.  In addition, sessions will be devoted to the                     
applications of 3D imaging techniques in biology and medicine, food             
science, materials and industrial inspection.  The programme will               
include invited and contributed lectures, and poster presentations.             
An abstract book will be provided at the conference.  Full papers may           
be published in a special issue of Micron and Microscopica Acta.  A             
technical exhibition will be held during the conference.
