NEUBIAS Conference 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 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), Bordeaux (2020).

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, a "training school" for  image scientists and bioimage analysts is set. 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.
