Internet Biophotonics V

Preliminary program

The main goal of the Workshop is to involve international community of junior researches and students in the field of recent developments of biophotonics via distant learning provided by the Internet facilities.

SFM has a prolonged experience in organizing of Internet sessions during last 15 years. In 2011 such presentations have included plenary lectures made by:

Lihong V. Wang, Washington University in St. Louis, USA:
