Welcome to the 13th Single Molecule Localization Microscopy Symposium. The 2024 edition continues our tradition of bringing together leading scientists and researchers in the field of single-molecule localization microscopy and advanced super-resolution imaging technologies. This year, we celebrate a decade of remarkable advancements since the nobels for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy and honor the pioneering contributions that have shaped our field.

The symposium covers a wide array of topics, including the development of innovative imaging methods, the creation of new fluorescent probes and labeling strategies, the application of these technologies to answer complex biological questions, and the evolution of sophisticated data analysis techniques.

The 2024 SMLMS edition is proudly co-organized by:
