Bordeaux, France - 29 Feb to 6 March 2020 (*4-6 March)

The organisers of the 4th NEUBIAS Conference welcome you!

The 4th Annual Conference of NEUBIAS, gathering the whole BioImage Analysis Community into a multi-faceted event, offers two parallel Training Schools for selected early career and advanced analysts and a Working Meeting (Taggathon) for invited taggers, which precede a Large Symposium dedicated to recent Scientific Developments and Open Tools in BioImage Analysis. Participation in the Symposium is open to all from academia and industry, where participants will be accepted until all spots are filled.

Training Schools and Taggathon are taking place at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neurosciences of the University of Bordeaux from February 29th to March 3rd, 2020, followed by the symposium which is hosted at the ENSEIRB MATMECA campus in the city center of Bordeaux on March 4, 5 and 6, 2020.

NEUBIAS2020 is a new series of annual international conferences organized by NEUBIAS

The NEUBIAS conference is a forum to exchange the newest findings, applications, and cutting-edge developments in Bioimage Analysis, machine learning, data mining, and storage. European Bioimage Analysts organize this event bringing together an international, interdisciplinary community of about 250 leading scientists in the life and computer sciences. The 3-days Symposium reflects the need to foster the networking between image analysis Developers and their end-users. The interest and needs for image processing in life sciences are heavily growing, a reality that is reflected by the success of earlier events of NEUBIAS in Lisbon (2017), Szeged (2018) and Luxembourg (2019).

The organizing committee is assembling a balanced program featuring both academic and industry presenters which will include image restoration, storage & management, 3D & 4D image analysis, tools for high content analysis, data mining, machine learning approaches and open source developments. Aside from plenary talks and abstract presentations, we will have dedicated “Call4Help” sessions to team up tool providers with life scientists facing roadblocks in their image analysis, and two satellite "training schools" for "early career scientists" and "advanced bioimage analysts". The NEUBIAS symposium will also feature the latest updates on open source software tools, components, and packages, in plenary talks and during the  "Open Source Software Lounge" session which has been a great success in Lisbon and Szeged, and where participants can meet developers and power users of a wide range of Open tools for bioimage analysis in hands-on demonstrations.
