Every two years, the French Society for Cell Biology (SBCF) organises an
international meeting called ‘Imaging the Cell’. This year, the 8th edition was
held on 24-26 June 2015 at University of Bordeaux Campus Victoire in the city of
Bordeaux, France, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Over the course of three days,
the meeting provided a forum for experts in different areas of cell imaging. Its
unique approach was to combine conventional oral presentations during morning
sessions with practical workshops at hosting institutes and the Bordeaux Imaging
Center during the afternoons. The meeting, co-organised by Violaine Moreau and
Frédéric Saltel (both INSERM U1053, Bordeaux, France), Christel Poujol and
Fabrice Cordelières (both Bordeaux Imaging Center, Bordeaux, France) and Isabelle
Sagot (Institut de Biochimie et Génétique Cellulaires, Bordeaux, France), brought
together about 120 scientists including 16 outstanding speakers to discuss the
latest advances in cell imaging. Thanks to recent progress in imaging
technologies, cell biologists are now able to visualise, follow and manipulate
cellular processes with unprecedented accuracy. The meeting sessions and
workshops highlighted some of the most exciting developments in the field, with
sessions dedicated to optogenetics, high-content screening, in vivo and live-cell
imaging, correlative light and electron microscopy, as well as super-resolution
