NEUBIAS 2020 Conference Series

NEUBIAS 2020 is a new series of annual international Conference centered on Bioimage Analysis, which includes 3 parallel events and a common Symposium/Showcase.

It brings together Life-Scientists, Bioimage Analysts, Image Analysis- and Software- developers and other Core Facilities Specialists (e.g. Microscopists) to bridge the gap between Bioimage Analysis developments and know-how, and their use in Life Science. It aims to be a forum to exchange the newest findings, applications and cutting-edge developments in Bioimage Analysis, machine learning, data mining and storage.

NEUBIAS 2020 is the major annual gathering of NEUBIAS, a COST Action gathering 34 European countries and International Partner Countries, and aims to bring together ~250 scientists from the BioImage Analysis Community.

NEUBIAS2020 reflects the need to foster the networking between image analysis developments and their end-users. The interest and need for image processing in life sciences are strongly growing, a reality that was reflected in the success of earlier related events like the EUBIAS in Barcelona in October 2013 ( and Paris in January 2015 (, from where NEUBIAS project has stemmed and matured.

The event combines, in a compact 6-days event:

  • 2x Training schools (on selection),                       
    • For Early Career Investigators - parallel
    • For Bioimage Analysts
  • a Taggathon (working meeting, on invitation)
  • an Open Symposium/Showcase on Bioimage Analysis and Open Tools         


2017: Lisbon, Portugal.

The first NEUBIAS2020 Conference will be held in Portugal hosted by the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, on February 12-17th, 2017!
