This focused workshop aims at bringing together key players in the field of Computational Optical Microscopy to discuss recent advances in the field. The topics include but are not limited to:

•      Theory of computational optical microscopy

•      Components, devices and platforms for computational optical microscopy

•      Portable computational optical microscopy

•      Adaptive optics and wavefront shaping for computational microscopy

•      Point spread function engineering and structured illumination

•      Machine learning in computational optical microscopy

•      Computation-based super-resolution microscopy

•      Image visualization and analysis for multidimensional data

•      Biomedical applications of computational optical microscopy


This workshop aims at connecting the communities of optics, physics, mathematics, computer science and life sciences, in an open atmosphere, with long time for lectures and extended discussions, favoring the exchange of ideas and emergence of collaborations.


All the talks will be invited, including several technology talks from industry.
