European Summer School on Optical Imaging Techniques for Biomedical Applications


Universidad Carlos III de Madrid
Madrid, Spain, 15-16 September 2014

 The European Optical Imaging and Laser TEchniques for Biomedical Applications (OILTEBIA) project is an Initial Training Network (ITN) under coordination of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. The main objective of the network is to provide a training framework by establishing a crossroad among the different technical domains that overlap on this multidisciplinary topic, gathering experts in the domains of biomedical applications, laser optical sources, ultrasound sensors, signal processing and imaging algorithms from physics, chemistry, biology and engineering backgrounds.


Optical imaging system technology is a subject currently under intense study, particularly within biophotonics. This summer school is intended to bring together experts on continuous variable optic and laser techniques to study as well applications in biomedicine. The OILTEBIA project is committed to offer high quality scientific and complementary training which is intended to allow the researchers to improve their academic curricula to the current industrial needs. The 1st Summer School of OILTEBIA including the complementary skills course and laboratory training platform will be held on 15-19 September 2014 at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain.


The first two days (15-16 September) will be an open European Summer School in Optical Imaging Techniques for Biomedical Applications that provides a multidisciplinary seminars for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, researchers, engineers and scientists working in optics, biophotonics, pre-clinical optical imaging systems, materials science and related fields in the biomedical applications. The expert scientists will bring their latest achievements which promote professional researchers and young students to think outside the box and industries to develop scale-up optical technologies in real biomedical applications. Each session supplemented by presentation and discussion on the potential optic investment opportunities and related issues in the following areas: 

  • Session I: Introduction to the optical and laser techniques in the cutting-age biomedical application
  • Session II: Optical diffusion
  • Session III: Optoacoustics
  • Session IV: Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

Venue

The Campus of Leganés at University Carlos III of Madrid is in the city of Leganés, that is a part of the Madrid metropolitan area. It is a young and dynamic city of 179000 inhabitants, one of the biggest municipalities in the southern metropolitan area of the capital, which altogether totals more than a million inhabitants.

Few cities in the Community of Madrid have managed industrialization and economic growth like Leganés, which currently enjoys an excellent provision of hospitals, schools and training centres, assistance services and residential, leisure and commercial areas and nearly four million m2 of green areas, parks and gardens.

It is one of the cities with the longest industrial tradition in Madrid and features strong economic growth:

· Seven business parks already up and running and four more in development

· Active population of over 80000 people

· 6,7 million m2 aimed at production activities (including projects)

· Presence of small, medium and large enterprises representing most economic and industrial sectors

Leganés enjoys a strategic geographic position, extensive and efficient transport and communications network both within the city and with connections to other cities and Madrid via train, subway and bus. The city boast a modern municipal management strongly aimed at facilitating the development of business networks, aware of the how important businesses are to the economic and social growth of the city.
