A series of FOM conferences have been held each year for over ten years. FOM 2000 is organized as a joint international conference consisting of the 12th International Conference on Confocal Microscopy, the 13th International Conference on 3D Image Processing and Microscopy, and SLM-25, semi-annual meeting of the Society for Laser Microscopy, Japan.
FOM 2000 will be held in Shirahama or in Japanese, "the white beach", 200km south to the city of Osaka, Japan.
