Program

A balanced program

Following COST policies and the NEUBIAS mission, we aim to establish a series of lectures with a good balance between science-driven talks and tools-driven contributions, between invited and selected abstracts, between life science and image analysis technology, between senior and early career speakers, between facilities and research labs.

Special Sessions

BioImage Analyst Satellite Meeting (Tue pm, March 3)

Following the successful edition in Luxembourg (2019), a satellite meeting will be organized in the afternoon preceding the Symposium.

Time and Place: 14h30-19h00 at the Training schools Venue (Centre Broca Nouvelle Aquitaine).

Workshop-style sessions for analysts to exchange on problems and workflows. Half-day event one day before the symposium.

During this meeting, advanced image analysis workflows will be presented by experienced BioImage Analysts. Major goal of the session is communication among experts fostering knowledge exchange. We will show and discuss image analysis, components, workflows and tools that are technically advanced and yet have clear potential to work on a routine basis. However, the workflows might have bottlenecks and even breaks. Thus, the session serves as frame for expert-to-expert discussions on what tools and workflows can be applied in the daily business of bioimage analysts.

Schedule: 2 sessions of 2h each about issue specific topics: Topics to be defined.

The maximum number of participants will be 150 and availability will be done on a first come first served basis. Program to be announced.

C4H: Call for Help Session (Thu pm, Mar 5)

A plenary session introduced at the NEUBIAS conference in Lisbon (2017), C4H brings together members of the BioImage Data & Analysis community and life-scientists to present their problems and share their suggested solutions. There you can present your case, see other presentations and share your thoughts and hints. Call4Help has since evolved to its current form with a website hosting past projects and ongoing discussions from where projects are selected for the next live event: Check the Call4Help web pages and see how to take part in the session in Luxembourg.

OSSL: Open-Source Software Lounge (Wed pm, March 4)

Meet the developers, specialists and power-users who demonstrate the latest updates of open-source software packages and tools in a live demo session of 2⅓ h.

Submissions of abstracts for this session will be possible until the deadline of poster submission, mid-december 2018.
