NEUBIAS 2020 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.

The organizing committee has assembled 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 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”. 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 where participants can meet developers and power users of a wide range of Open tools for Bioimage analysis in Live demo format.
