NEUBIAS image analysis training schools, 29 February – 3 March 2020, Bordeaux, France
NEUBIAS, the Network of European BioImage Analysts (www.neubias.org), is delighted to announce two new Training Schools on BioImage Analysis:
TS14 for Early Career
Investigators (Life Scientists: PhD candidates, Postdocs, Staff, …):
This training school will cover the basics of image analysis using ImageJ/Fiji,
as well as image analysis workflow automation using ImageJ macro programming.
In addition, it will be taught how to use the software package ilastik for
machine learning based image segmentation and object classification, and how to
integrate ilastik into ImageJ macro based workflows. Moreover, an overview of
further relevant bioimage analysis software packages will be given and there
will be ample time for “Work on Your Own Data” sessions assisted by
TS15 for BioImage Analysts (advanced level): This school targets
bioimage analysts, who are willing to enhance their professional scope and
techniques for improving the quality of their analysis, as well as willing to
contribute with their knowledge and experience to the school. Prerequisite is a
proficiency in at least one programming language (we do not train coding). The
school focuses on workflow designing. This year, we will have a particular
emphasis on statistics for bioimage analysis and related tools e.g. R and
Python libraries. In addition, we will overview machine & deep learning
The schools will be held in
Bordeaux, Feb 29 – Mar 03 2019, hosted at the Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine
by the Bordeaux Imaging Center (BIC) and the Interdisciplinary Institute for
Neuroscience. The selected students will be able to attend the whole NEUBIAS
conference as part of the training.
NEUBIAS schools are an
excellent opportunity to learn from many experts in Bioimage Analysis (we are
expecting >20 specialists at the event) and “…a great mix of intensive
learning and community networking” (former trainee testimonial). All schools
include practical sessions “Work on Your Own Data”, plenary seminars and a
session on ethics in image analysis.
Applications are now open
(TS14 = 25 seats, TS15 = 35 seats and ~10 trainers per school). Within the COST
framework (funders of NEUBIAS), we will offer up to 7 travel grants per school
to applicants who qualify.
