Meeting Announcement:


12th International Conference on 3D Image Processing in Microscopy
11th International Conference on Confocal Microscopy
April 11th-15th, 1999
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg, Germany

Confocal microscopy, multiphoton excitation and deconvolution techniques are
increasingly applied in the study of three-dimensional structures such as
are encountered in biology, medicine and material sciences.
Three-dimensional analysis and representation are crucial tasks in
subsequent data assessment. These conferences offer a most efficient meeting
point for developers and users working in these rapidly evolving fields and
play an important role in the dissemination of information about new
developments. Special attention will be given to the dramatic developments
in live cell imaging and manipulation, such as the role of the green
fluorescent protein.
