Welcome to the website of the international conference on Adaptive Optics and Wavefront Control in Microscopy and Ophthalmology. The conference will be held 5-7 October 2015 in Paris, France. 

In recent years, wavefront modulation techniques have started to play a key role in modern microscopy and ophthalmology, as they enable pushing back the limits of resolution, speed, penetration depth, etc. The conference aims to bring together researchers from around the world who develop and use wavefront modulation techniques.

The conference will be organized in five sessions:

  • Adaptive optics methods
  • Wavefront control in scattering tissue
  • Novel techniques in microscopy
  • Applications in biology
  • Retinal imaging
