IVSLA International School on Nanoscale Optical Microscopy

11 - 14 June 2019, Venice, Italy

The objective of this School is to advance the field of nanoscale optical microscopy operating at the scale of nanometres to tens of nanometres, through the exchange of information, ideas, and innovative techniques. The understanding of methods and techniques has the great potential of allowing, in the near future, for the design and performance of new exciting experiments in Biophysics, Optics and Photonics.

Lessons will be held in the magnificent Palazzo Loredan, Venice.
