Last 24hours to apply to NEUBIAS Training Schools (Porto, 14-17 Oct.)

Julien Colombelli
Dear Bioimaging colleagues,

Last 24 hours to apply to the NEUBIAS training schools on Bioimage Analysis, to happen in Porto (PT) on Oct. 14-17th, 2019.

Don't miss this opportunity, especially if you work in a facility, TS13 is the last round of a Facility Staff school format under the current framework of NEUBIAS.

See more details below.



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

    TS12 for Early Career Investigators (life scientists and facility staff).
    TS13 for Facility Staff (staff only, already comfortable with analysis workflows; focus is scripting with FIJI & Python)

The focus of the trainings 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 Porto, 14-17th of October 2019, hosted by IBMC/i3S and INESC TEC

NEUBIAS schools are an excellent opportunity to learn from many experts in Bioimage Analysis (we are expecting >20 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 Python and session on ethics in image analysis and “work on own data”.

Applications are now open (TS12 = 25 seats, TS13 = 25 seats and ~10 trainers per school)

Within the COST framework (funders of NEUBIAS),
we will offer up to 7 travel grants per school to applicants who qualify.

Registration requires a “letter of motivation” (filled in application form) and later a confirmation of status.

    Application extended deadline: May 30, 2019
    Selection notification: Before the mid of June

More information about schools (programme & trainers) and venue, travel & lodge available at our website:
