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.
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.
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.
Professor Maciej Wojtkowski participated in the 44th Congress of Polish Physical Society in Wroclaw, with a plenary lecture entitled "Journey from organs to cells: In vivo imaging by spatio-temporal optical coherence techniques".
The Congress of Polish Physical Society is the oldest Polish physics conference, with its history reaching back to the Inaugural Meeting held in Warsaw in 1923 and since then it has been organized in various cities in Poland by local branches of the Polish Physical Society.
Professor Maciej Wojtkowski participated in the Polish Optical Conference 2017 in Gniezno, with a plenary lecture entitled "Time-frequency modulation of light phases in imaging".
The Polish Optical Conference was organized by the Optics Division of the Polish Physical Society. The aim of this conference is to integrate the Polish opticians. Participation in Polish Optical Conference gave an opportunity to meet and exchange views with wide range of people, for whom the development of Polish scientific thought, engineering and teaching in the field of optics is important.
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).
Prof. Wojtkowski’s group, participated in the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics ECBO 2017 organized by the Optical Society-OSA and International Society for Optics and Photonics-SPIE. This conference was an international meeting of scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work with optics and photonics.
Dawid Borycki participated in Microsoft Build 2017 conference to learn about new artificial intelligence, machine and deep learning toolkits, provided by Microsoft. Specifically, Professor Wojtkowski's team will utilize new modules of computer vision (CV) in several of ongoing projects.
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.
