Special Sessions

A balanced program

Following COST policies and 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.

OsSL:    Open-source Software Lounge

Meet the developers, specialists and PowerUsers who demonstrate the latest updates of Software Packages and Tools in a live demo session of 2.5 hours.

Refreshments, laptops and good atmosphere.

Confirmed Packages in Demo: Ilastik, Fiji, KNIME, Cytomine, Drishti/Drishti Prayog, CellProfiler, QuimP, Advanced Cell Classifier, DeBIAS, ClearVolume/Mastodon/Sciview, CellTool, CPI scripting, GcoPS, DiversePathJ, SIMCheck, ImFCS, BoneJ2, Open Source Python for Super-resolution, more to come ...

C4H:    Call for Help

A panel-discussion 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 and see how to take part in the session in Szeged. More info to come.
