NEW! NEUBIAS Satellite meeting: Bioimage Analysts’ best practices seminar

During this meeting, advanced image analysis workflows and infrastructures will be presented by experienced Bioimage Analysts. The primary 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 and infrastructures might have bottlenecks and even breaks. Thus, the session serves as a forum for expert-to-expert discussions on what tools and workflows can be applied in the daily business of bioimage analysts.

Compared to a teaching session (from experts to students) the presentations (given from expert to expert) may also point to bottlenecks in the workflows or parts which don’t work sufficiently. This fosters discussion, knowledge exchange and potentially further development.

What distinguishes this session from an abstract submission is that the presenters are not expected to present recent developments, but established advanced tools and their usage. These tools could even be developed by other people.
