The 32nd International Congress on High-Speed Imaging and Photonics (ICHSIP-32) will be held at the University of Twente in the Netherlands on October 8-12. The Physics of Fluids group of the University of Twente and the BUBBL group of the University of Oxford will co-organize this meeting, summarizing the state-of-the-art in high-speed imaging technology. In addition to new scientific discoveries and technical innovations presented in contributed talks, and a premier industry exhibition, cutting-edge ultra-fast imaging technologies are reviewed by leading scientists in a range of application fields from ultra-fast x-ray imaging, super-resolution microscopy, ultrafast AFM to 3D live cell imaging.


The program has been finalized and available here: ICHSIP-32 program.

We are pleased to announce a stellar line-up of speakers, including three excellent plenary speakers: David Lentink, who performs highly innovative studies of animal motion with the aim of developing biomimetic systems, Mickael Tanter, who performs ultra high-speed ultrasound imaging for various applications, including neuroimaging, and Javier Rodríguez Rodríguez, who studies the dynamics of bubbles, from the physics of beer to vortex rings in microgravity.

The following awards were presented at the ICHSIP-32 conference:

The nac High-Speed Imaging Award - $ 5,000 for outstanding and innovative contributions made in the field of high-speed imaging that are completed in the last five years - awarded to prof. Keisuke Goda.

Photron Slow-Motion Video Awards - € 750 (2×) for top-rated videos recorded with high-speed cameras in two categories: Scientific excellence and Artistic excellence. The award for Scientific excellence was awarded to Muhammed Saeed Saleem's "Rebound of a oil-lubricated water drop on a hydrophilic surface". The award for Artistic Excellence was awarded to Thomas Meier's "Tit – A day at the window". Honorable mention for scientific excellence: Harald Kleine, “Thunder and lightning”, Phred Petersen, “Viscous folding 1080” and Patricia Vega Martinez, “Bubbles in earth conditions VS Bubbles in microgravity conditions”. Honorable mention for artistic excellence: Phred Petersen, “Viscous folding 1080”, Jens Heidler “Destroying Eggs@ 16.200 fps”.

Specialised Imaging Best Poster Awards - € 750 (3×) were presented to top-evaluated poster presentations in three categories: Instrumentations and Solution Tools (Xing Wang, "High resolution electron bombarded complementary metal oxide semiconductor sensor for ultraviolet detection"), Physical Applications (Maaike Rump, "Wetting dynamics and the Leidenfrost transition for liquid drops impacting on a hot plate"), and Biological Applications (Alan McKiernan, 'Inhaler spray investigation using high-speed phase-contrast X-ray and schlieren imaging").
