The third edition of the Σ-Tech Days autumn school will cover the theme “Explore the world of biomaterials with advanced photonics and artificial intelligence”. The lecture series will be held from 5th to 7th October 2021 at Limoges, France.

The Σ-Tech Days school is supported by the LABEX Σ-LIM. The event is intended to gather international experts and provide a snapshot of the academic landscape on a targeted research area. It is also expected to be a forum for the confrontation of ideas and the emergence of new ones.

This year, the scientific program of the autumn school is organized around three themes:

This topic includes:

  • Development of ceramic devices for applications in bone tissue engineering
  • Advanced manufacturing technologies and characterization techniques
  • Control of chemical and architectural design
  • Study of cell-materials interactions
  • Biocompatibility, biofunctionalization, biomimetics, biofabrication

This topic includes:

  • Development of photonic instrumentation for life sciences
  • Advanced strategies of microscopy and/or spectroscopy
  • Linear and nonlinear processes
  • Coherent Raman microscopy, super-resolution microscopy
  • Label-free imaging, live cell/tissue imaging

  

This topic includes:

  • Processing and analysis of spectral data
  • Chemometrics
  • Classification and decision making
  • Deep learning
  • Real or artificial intelligence
