The 3rd NEUBIAS Conference - Luxembourg, 2 - 8 February 2019

The organisers of the 3rd NEUBIAS Conference welcome you!

The 3rd 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 Belval campus of the University of Luxembourg from February 2 to 5, 2019, followed by the symposium which is hosted at the historical Abtei Neimënster in the lower old town of the country's capital on February 6, 7 and 8, 2019.

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 in February 2017 and Szeged in January and February 2018.

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.

For the first time in 2019, the symposium will be preceded by an image analysis satellite meeting, where experts and users from the field can openly compare notes.
