NEUBIAS Image Analysis schools, 11-14 September 2017, Gothenburg, Sweden

NEUBIAS Image Analysis schools for Early Career researchers + Facility Staff

Gothenburg 11-14 September  2017 – application DEADLINE 26 MAY!

Dear colleagues,

NEUBIAS, the Network of European BioImage Analysts (www.neubias.org), is delighted to announce two new Training Schools on BioImage Analysis:

The focus of training will be on construction and automation of Image Analysis workflows, using as examples more than one toolbox and different exercises. The schools will be held in Gothenburg 11-14th of September 2017, hosted by the Centre for Cellular Imaging – Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
NEUBIAS schools are an excellent opportunity to learn from many experts in bioimage analysis (we are expecting ~40 specialists at the event) and “….a great mix of intensive learning and community networking” (former trainee testimonial!).
– applications for Gothenburg are now open (each school has 25 available seats and 10-12 trainers).
– Within the COST framework, a few travel grants are offered to applicants who qualify.
– Registration deadline: 26th of May, 2017 (must submit also “letter of motivation”).
