The Crick BioImage Analysis Symposium (CBIAS) aims to showcase image analysis techniques to biomedical researchers and to demonstrate how such approaches can help them advance their research.
The symposium will bring together life scientists and leading developers of bioimage analysis methods to illustrate how such approaches can answer defined biological questions.
The ability to routinely acquire large, multi-dimensional datasets with modern microscopy techniques is revolutionising biomedical research. In order to fully realise the benefits of such imaging technologies, automated analysis pipelines are needed, but many life scientists lack the necessary expertise to design and execute such analyses.
The key objectives of the symposium are:
- Inform biomedical researchers of the possibilities that image analysis can deliver for their research
- Establish links between life science researchers and image analysis experts
- Foster the development of an image analysis network, with the Crick as its central hub
Abstract submission has now closed for this year’s symposium.
Submissions covering a wide range of topics were received, including, but not limited to:
- Image segmentation
- Machine/deep learning
- New tools for bioimage analysis
- High-throughput image analysis
- Super-resolution imaging
- Big data
- Teaching/training image analysis
- Quality control
The scientific organisers are in the process of selecting abstracts for talks and posters sessions – the programme will be updated with the selected talks in early October.
