Dawid Borycki participated in the Microsoft Build 2018 conference. The aim of this visit was to learn about new software technologies used in Professor Wojtkowski lab. Dawid was particularly interested in the artificial intelligence for computer vision and the intelligent edge.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Optical Society of America (OSA) Biophotonics Congress Biomedical Optics. The main aim of this visit was to give a talk entitled Correlation gating quantifies optical properties of dynamic media in transmission mode.
Michał Hamkało as a member of the prof. Wojtkowski team took part in a working visit at the Max Planck Institute. The bussines trip was organized in order to perform the first 3D OCT measurements of a beating rabbit hearts (in Langedorrff perfusion system). All measurements were done together by the team of prof. Wojtkowski and their collaborators from Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Selforganization (dr Jan Christoph, Stephan Luther) in Goettingen and from Institute for Biomedical Optics in Luebeck (T. Pfeiffer, W. Draxonger and prof. Huber).
Łukasz Kornszewski (member of the prof.Wojtowski group) attended MEDmeetsTECH conference which focused on bringing together Polish medical, financial and technological professionals in order to help them understand their needs and learn about solutions offered by the others.
During the working visit Marta Janczuk-Richter was conducting research in Bionanophotonic Systems Laboratory Group (BIOS) led by professor Hatice Altug in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. The main goal of the visit was to become familiar with the preparation and measurements of plasmonic biosensors.
The purpose of the visit was twofold: for the new group members to learn the experimental setup and procedure of two-photon vision threshold measurement and to verify applicability of an existing product of Fluence, manufacturer of femtosecond fibre lasers, for this technique. An extra target was to explore requirements of the method and setup to start the process of adapting the Fluence laser when it comes to integration into the measurement device.
On the 22 – 23 February, 2018 Prof. dr. Jochen Blumberger, from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London, UK came to IPC. Prof. Blumberger delivered seminar composed of 2 parts:“Inorganic Interfaces, Organic Materials and Energy Converting Enzymes: The Power of Computational Chemistry”, “The Art of Leading a Research Group”
All researchers and PhD students employed at IPC were invited to participate in this seminar – the seminar was attended by approx. 70 people.
Dawid Borycki participated in the Code Europe Spring 2018 conference. The aim of this visit was to give two talks. Titles and short abstracts of these presentations are given below. Presentations were recorded by the organizer and will be published on their YouTube channel.
Main purpose of visiting San Francisco was to take part in the Photonics West 2018 conference. The conference is the largest meeting of people from photonics and biomedical optics fields and gives the great opportunity to discuss and see current progress from these fields. The conference was attended by: Dawid Borycki, Michał Hamkało and Yuriy Stepanenko.
On the 21st November 2017, in Vilnius, Patrycja Nitoń and Monika Wydorska took part in the conference “Widening Lithuanian Research Potential” organized by Research Council of Lithuania and Lithuanian RDI Liaison Office LINO. The aim of the conference was to discuss Horizon 2020 measures under the programme “Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation”, Lithuanian and other Widening Member States experiences related to applying and participating in the Teaming, Twinning and ERA Chairs projects.
