A Bioimage Analysis Community Meeting, NEUBIAS2020

Posted by , on 14 November 2016


Learn and Communicate Bioimage Analysis

NEUBIAS2020 conference is a new annual meeting of the BioImage Analysis community. We are very glad to invite you to the first conference in Lisbon (Portugal) on 12-17th of February 2017, hosted and co-organized by the Gulbenkian Institute of Science.

The conference aims to promote knowledge- and technological- transfer between all the players of the BioImage Analysis Community: Life scientists, Image Analysis and Software Developers, Microscopists, BioImaging Facility staff, and most importantly: Biomage Analysts, a new profession in Life Science that NEUBIAS aims to support and promote.

In brief, the event articulates in four parts:

All are now open to registration.

The symposium

The Symposium aims to offer a broad view over the latest developments and updates in Bioimage analysis and can be attended independent of registration to training schools. It includes

  • A Showcase giving exposure to open source software packages and tools updates
  • Company’s products
  • Community round tables
  • Career path debates
  • Community progress report

Bioimage Analysis will be covered as a broad field of Research, Technology-development and Service-for-Data-Producers (i.e. researchers in Life Science) in the context of many types of BioImage data: Optical Microscopy, Electron Microscopy, Medical Imaging, among others.


More About NEUBIAS, Mobility Grants, Careers, Action

The Network

NEUBIAS is a network Action funded by COST (, aiming to maximize the impact of advances in imaging technology on the Life Sciences, and to boost the productivity of bioimaging-based research projects in Europe. The Action intends to provide a stronger identity to Bioimage Analysts by organising a new type of meeting fostering interactions between all stakeholders (i.e. NEUBIAS 2020).

Please visit our webpage for more information.

Mobility Grants

NEUBIAS also provides mobility funds for scientists willing to expand their knowledge in Bioimage Analysis and/or to develop Image Analysis capabilities for their research project.
Check the next Call for Short Term Scientific Missions, closing on November 15th, 2016.

Career Actions: Our Request

NEUBIAS also needs the input from the whole community to devise best-practice guidelines for the career path of BioImage Analysis, a new profession still not fully recognized in the field. If your work activity embraces Bioimage Analysis to support Life Science (as a service, collaboration etc…), please take 5 minutes to fill our new “Career Consultation”:

We are looking forward to see you in February!
