NEUBIAS, the Network of European BioImage Analysts,
is delighted to announce two new Training Schools on BioImage Analysis:

Training School for Early Career Investigators (life scientists) 

 Training School for Facility staff (imaging & analysis staff from core-facilities)

NEUBIAS-Edinburgh 2018The focus of training will be on construction and automation of BioImage Analysis workflows, using as examples more than one toolbox and different exercises. The schools will be held in Edinburgh 16-19th of October 2018, hosted by the MRC Center for Regenerative Medicine/Imaging facility and co-organized by the University of Edinburgh and University of Dundee.

NEUBIAS schools are an excellent opportunity to learn from many experts in Bioimage Analysis (we are expecting >30 specialists at the event) and “….a great mix of intensive learning and community networking” (former trainee testimonial!). The schools will include practical sessions and seminars on ImageJ for analysis and publication, scripting/macros in ImageJ and Matlab, Omero, CellProfiler, QuPath, Ilastik, Ethics in Image Analysis and work on own data.
