The 6th annual Single Molecule Localization Microscopy Symposium (SMLMS) will take place at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne 28th-30th August 2016 in Rolex Learning Center. This edition continues the successful SMLMS series Zurich 2011, Lausanne 2012, Frankfurt 2013, London 2014, and Bordeaux 2015. The scope of the meeting is to bring together scientists from Europe and abroad working in the field of single-molecule super-resolution imaging.

We anticipate an exciting program built around the following topics:

1. development of new optical methods
2. development of new probes and labeling strategies
3. applications to biological questions
4. new algorithms for data analysis

We are proud to support the second edition of the localization microscopy  software challenge. This edition will be focused on 3D localization techniques and software.
