ELMI 2021 Bursaries

We are excited to annouce bursaries are available to help students and junior core staff attend ELMI2021 this year. 

The limited number of bursaries are designed to help cover the registration fee in part or in full depending on the fund applied to.

We would like to thank Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH and Nikon Europe BV for generously providing bursary funds for ELMI 2021. More details on how to apply can by found on the ELMI2021 website.

Core Facilities Session

Taking place on Tuesday 22 June 2021, this session is included with elmi2021 registration. The schedule includes:

Crib Talks
Crib Talks are short presentations (5-10 minutes) introducing a facility to the broader community. Talks should touch on how the facility operates, their equipment (especially nicest toys), and give an impression about strategic priorities such as the user base, scientific focus, how the core is developing, and what they enjoy about their role and facility. Abstract submission is open for Crib Talks, please email them to Pete O’Toole and Kurt Anderson.

The deadline for submissions is 28 May 2021.

Data Processing and Infrastructure
This interactive session consists of 2-parts where we aim to exchange ideas on how to best set up the (image-) data infrastructure in a microscopy facility?  What is needed, how do others organise data infrastructure, and what would you do (different) in case you could start all over?

Useful Online Tools for Core Facilities:  Videos, Websites, Apps …
The aim of this session is to investigate the community interest in a searchable, up to date database of online resources for microscopy and discuss the organization (how to keep it up to date, host domain…).  During the session the audience will help us collect existing online resources.

QUAREP-LiMi – Quality Assessment and Reproducibility for Instruments & Images in Light Microscopy
This session includes a general overview about the initiative and presentations from QUAREP-LiMi working groups.

More information about the Core Faciltities Session can be found on the elmi2021 website.
