This year’s edition will also feature an Happy Hour Poster session in the evening (7-10PM). Posters will have to be introduced by their presenters in the form of a short (~2-minute) oral presentation prior to the session. You also have the possibility to come and showcase your latest bioimage analysis algorithm/software in an open and friendly atmosphere.


The event will take place at the INRIA, Rennes campus. The full address is:

Campus de Beaulieu
35042 Rennes Cedex France

GdR Mini-symposium on BioImage Informatics 2015, November 23-24 @ Institut Pasteur Paris

We are happy to announce the 3rd edition of the annual symposium on Bioimage Informatics, organized by the GdR 2588 (Functional Microscopy of living organisms) and supported this year by France Bioimaging.

UPDATE: Registration is now closed. See you all on the 23rd!

This third edition of the event will feature two sessions covering rapidly developing topics of Bioimage Informatics:

  • Computational Imaging (Nov. 23rd): this session aims at gathering the computational and physical approaches that support imaging methods. This includes talks on inverse problems, compressed sensing, source separation and super-resolution. Presented applications will include many different imaging techniques including confocal microscopy, super resolution microscopy, Optical Projection Tomography, TIRF microscopy.
  • Computational Phenotyping (Nov. 24th): this session focuses on the automatic analysis of imaging data to derive biological information across different scales. This involves techniques for image segmentation and quantification, machine learning and statistics. Applications will cover different scales of organization (from cells to organisms) and will include examples from High Content Screening, plant phenotyping and spatial transcriptomics.
