Workshop on Biological Imaging Processing, NorMIC Oslo October 22-25, 2019

Dear Phd Students, Postdocs, Researchers and other image processing users.

The NorMIC Oslo Imaging Platform is organizing a four-days workshop on Biological Imaging Processing from 22d (Tuesday) to 25th (Friday)  of October 2019.

The workshop will be tailored to biologists who have been working with microscopes, but have not much experience with image processing. The workshop consists of both theory lectures (morning) and practical sessions (afternoon). The morning lectures will be open to public, and the practical session will be restricted to workshop registrants.

We hope that by this end of this workshop, all our participants will be able to understand the key concepts in image processing, able to write script to automate simple image processing task,  and most importantly, as a member of the community of imaging specialists of Norway, get to know the professional image processing specialist who you can collaborate with if you need help with more sophisticated algorithm.

Topics to be covered:

  • PreProcessing: Image Formation, Artifacts, Sampling, Deconvolution, Filtering;
  • Analysis: Feature Analysis, Segmentation, Tracking, etc.
  • PostProcessing: Introduction to Data Mining, Curve Fitting, Classification.
