UCL Bioimage Analysis Interest Group

The UCL Bioimage Analysis Interest Group aims to connect users and experts from different backgrounds who are interested in biological and biomedical image analysis. We hold monthly virtual meetings on the Zoom platform every last Friday of the month at 1-2pm. We host two speakers for short (15 min) and informal presentations each time, allowing plenty of time for discussion. Presentations are aimed at a broad audience and cover both new image analysis pipelines/tools and image analysis challenges people would like feedback on. We welcome work-in-progress presentations and highly encourage the participation of early-career researchers.
When: Last Friday of the month, 1-2pm
Meeting ID: 982 1434 7242
Passcode: 952497
