Workshop: developing community standards for bioimage analysis training

Heidelberg, Germany

Event dates: 7-9 November 2022 (Monday - Wednesday, 3 days)

Location: Heidelberg, Germany at EMBL and virtually via Zoom Meetings

Scientific committee: Christian Tischer (EMBL) and Antonio Politi (Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences)

Organizational committee: Gleb Grebnev (Global BioImaging) and Christian Tischer (EMBL)

Event overview:

Global BioImaging and NEUBIAS (Network of European BioImage Analysts) invite you to participate in a 3-day in-person workshop focused on development of bioimage analysis training material.

Bioimage analysis is a critical tool for life science research. Bioimage analysis is necessary for quantitative analysis of experimental data, but is often overlooked even though the amount of image data generated in life science experiments is increasing significantly. Hence, training of users and instructors in bioimage analysis is an important endeavor. During this workshop, we propose to gather bioimage analysis trainers to discuss how to create synergies, identify and develop common training materials, and eventually define a bioimage analysis curriculum. Image analysis trainers from around the globe are invited to apply to this workshop to jointly work on these goals.

This workshop is limited to 15 places.

Travel grants:

Five travel grants are available for persons whose institution cannot cover participation in this workshop.

Travel grants cover the costs of transportation (air travel, public transportation) and accommodation and can be applied for by persons from nonprofit organizations (e.g. research institutions/universities) via reimbursement.

Review of travel grant applications will take place after the deadline by a selection committee consisting of one member of the scientific committee, one member of the Global BioImaging coordination team, and one member of Global BioImaging Management Board.
