About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

From Images to Knowledge with ImageJ & Friends, 30 November- 2 December 2020, virtual conference

, by sterjung in Meetings, Conferences, Symposia

Discovery in the life-sciences increasingly relies on quantitative analysis of microscopy images. The 2020 virtual workshop “From Images to Knowledge (I2K)”, to be held from November 30 to December 2, will therefore focus on in-depth interactive tutorials covering state-of-the-art open source solutions for biological image reconstruction and analysis, as well as social interaction between developers, researchers, and students. It will be a forum to learn about and discuss forward looking strategies for dealing with the ever increasing amount of large and content rich microscopy imagery.

As all major open source platforms for bioimage analysis will be represented, this will be a great opportunity to learn how to use the best software tools for your research and how to get involved in their development! We will have an exciting number of leaders and rising stars in the field of computational image analysis participating in the workshop, both as tutors and social participants. I2K will therefore be a unique chance to get in touch with them in person.

Topics will include:

  • Bioimage analysis workflows
  • Computer vision and machine learning
  • Handling of big image data
  • Image data annotation and sharing
  • Image data visualisation
  • Image restoration, registration, segmentation, and tracking
  • Smart microscopy
  • Open software engineering

I2K is for (i) researchers and students who are generating or analysing large and/ or complex image data, (ii) scientists creating tools and methods to solve image analysis problems, and (iii) software engineers who provide and maintain the necessary infrastructure.

Call for Tutorials (deadline October 25, 2020)

Have you created an exciting open-source software tool that solves difficult image analysis problems? Do you develop an open-source library that enables new kinds of visualization or large scale data processing? Are you the creator or expert user of a new machine learning method that can be useful to solve difficult analysis problems? Do you host a database to share large annotated datasets with the scientific community? Anything else that we haven’t thought about? Please apply to host an in-depth tutorial about your work at the virtual I2K 2020 workshop!
