BioImage Informatics Conference 2017

The BioImage Informatics (BII) conference is the premier meeting on image informatics for life sciences. It aims to establish a unique communication network for researchers working in the fields of image processing, computer vision, and image-based analytics, for applications in biology. Since the first conference in 2005, it has been attracting computer scientists and biologists from all over the world.

BII 2017 will be held September 19-21 in the picturesque Banff National Park in Canada. It will feature the newest methods, technologies, research findings, and applications in the field. The conference will include invited talks by leading scientists, contributed exhibitions by companies, competitions and challenges, as well as oral and poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts. Participants with any level of experience will greatly benefit from attending this conference.

You are cordially invited to submit high-quality abstracts describing original contributions to any aspect of bioimage informatics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Computational imaging in light and electron microscopy
  • Deep learning strategies for bioimage analysis
  • Integrative analysis of image and omics data
  • Neuron reconstruction and brain connectomics
  • Image analysis from molecular to cellular levels
  • Histopathological image processing and analysis
  • Objective evaluation of bioimage informatics methods
  • Storage and management of bioimage data sets
  • Whole-organism bioimage data handling and analysis
  • Large-scale image-based screening and data analytics
  • Bioimage informatics software, pipelines, workflows
