Program (updated June 21st):

9am – 10.30am: Big Data & Machine learning

  • Sébastien Collin, “Quantitative 3D-Imaging for Cell Biology and Ecology of Environmental Microbial Eukaryotes”
  • Peter Naylor, “Nuclei segmentation in Histopathology Images Using Deep Neural Networks”
  • Vedran Vukotić, “Deep neural architectures for automatic representation learning from multimedia multimodal data
  • Emmanuel Moebel, “Exploring cellular landscapes with deep learning”

11am – 12.30pm: Multi-scale approaches & Biophysics 

  • Perrine Paul-Gilloteaux, “Analysis methods and software for correlative microscopies and multiscale imaging”
  • Yann le Cunff, “Inferring biophysics of cell division from centrosome trajectories”
  • Stefano Zapperi, “Bursts of activity in collective cell migration”

12.30 – 1.45pm: Lunch break

1.45 – 2pm: Presentation of the GdR ImaBio & FranceBioImaging

2pm – 4pm: Single Molecule techniques

  • Jean Baptiste Sibarita, “Quantitative multicolors single-molecule localization microscopy”
  • Denis Fortun, “Multichannel reconstruction from multiple particles to localize proteins in 3D fluorescence microscopy with isotropic resolution”
  • Mohamed El Beheiry, “Mapping of Single-Molecule Dynamics : Where we’re at and where we’re going”
  • Frederic Lavancier, “A fast automatic colocalization  method for 3D live cell and super-resolution microscopy”

4 – 4.30pm: Coffee break

4.30 – 6pm: Imaging and modelling

  • Mathieu Pinot, “Role of mechanical tensile forces on cell fate acquisition”
  • Sylvain Cussat-Blanc, “In-silico therapeutic optimization in multicellular tumor spheroids”

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
