4th NEUBIAS Conference & Symposium

Bordeaux, France

The NEUBIAS conference is a forum to exchange the newest findings, applications, and cutting-edge developments in Bioimage Analysis, machine learning, data mining, and storage. European Bioimage Analysts organize this event bringing together an international, interdisciplinary community of about 250 leading scientists in the life and computer sciences. The 3-days Symposium reflects the need to foster the networking between image analysis Developers and their end-users. The NEUBIAS symposium will also feature the latest updates on open source software tools, components, and packages, in plenary talks and during the "Open Source Software Lounge" session which has been a great success in Lisbon and Szeged, and where participants can meet developers and power users of a wide range of Open tools for bioimage analysis in hands-on demonstrations.

International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging

Iowa City, Iowa

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is a scientific conference dedicated to mathematical, algorithmic, and computational aspects of biological and biomedical imaging, across all scales of observation. It fosters knowledge transfer among different imaging communities and contributes to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging. ISBI is a joint initiative from the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). The 2020 meeting will be held in Iowa City, Iowa, USA and will include tutorials, challenges and a scientific program composed of plenary talks, workshops, as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

April 5-8, 2020

Focus on Microscopy 2020

Osaka, Japan

FOM2020 in Osaka will be the continuation of a yearly conference series (since 1988) on the latest innovations and developments in mostly optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences. Key subjects for the conference series are the theory and practice of 3D optical imaging, related 3D image processing, and reporting especially on developments in resolution and imaging modalities. The conference series covers also the rapidly advancing fluorescence labeling techniques for confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens. Abstract Deadline for oral and poster program: January 15, 2020
Abstract Deadline for poster presentation only: January 24, 2020

2020 North Atlantic Microscopy Society (NAMS) Meeting

University of Pennsylvania

NAMS was founded by Gary Laevsky and Paul Shao at Princeton University. Its mission is to promote microscopy education and to provide researchers and vendors in the region with opportunities to connect and hear about the latest applications of microscopy techniques.

The focus of this meeting will be Correlative Light-Electron Microscopy (CLEM). Light and electron microscopy (EM) speakers will highlight their respective techniques, while CLEM speakers will demonstrate the benefits of bringing the two modalities together.

May 26-28, 2020

OME Community Meeting

University of Dundee, Scotland

This meeting aims to explore the imaging communities status on file formats, metadata specs, data management and workflow.

June 9-11, 2020

Canadian Network of Scientific Platforms Meeting

Toronto, Canada

The CNSP-RCPS is a pan-Canadian network of professional/staff working in any aspect of research scientific platforms (i.e. technology resources, core facilities) at the technical, managerial or administrative level. The aim of the network is to represent diverse technologies and institution types from regions all across the country

June 9-12 2020

20th International European Light Microscopy Initiative Meeting

Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands

ELMI conferences were established as a unique networking opportunity providing exchange of information between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of microscopy equipment. They have become a regular meeting place of scientists who develop and apply advanced light microscopy in their research, as well as becoming a crucial conference for imaging networks and people working in imaging facilities.

The ELMI-2020 meeting will cover many techniques and applications, including sessions about: Functional & live cell imaging, Image data management and analysis, Intravital imaging, Light sheet microscopy, Correlative light and electron microscopy, and New technologies and probe.

June 30 - July 2, 2020

Core Technologies for Life Sciences (CTLS) 2020

Lisbon, Portugal

Core Facilities are key-players in modern institutions. Their still emergent role inevitably entails new paradigms regarding their scope and structure. The CTLS2020 conference aims to address several of these points, contributing to shape the future of the technical and scientific landscape of life sciences in Europe.

September 17-18, 2020

Image to Knowledge: ImageJ User & Developer

Madison, WI

Approximately every two years from 2006 through 2015, there was a conference focused on ImageJ-based software, including both the core program itself, as well as applications and plugins thereof. As the community has grown, the ecosystem of imaging software tools has grown increasingly powerful and diverse, and therefore, the scope of the conferences has grown as well. In 2018, the conference name was changed to communicate this evolution of scope. The Fiji and ImageJ development teams at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden and LOCI in UW-Madison are pleased to announce the continuation of the ImageJ conference.
