Quantitative BioImaging Conference 2020

January 6 - January 9

The Quantitative BioImaging Society seeks to foster the scientific exchange of researchers with interest in quantitative imaging in biological and biomedical sciences. A particular emphasis is to promote interdisciplinary interactions between physicists, engineers, chemists, mathematicians, biologists, etc. One of the main activities to date has been the organization of the Quantitative BioImaging Conference that is held annually at different locations worldwide.

The QBI 2020 Conference will be held at the University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute, Oxford, UK between January 6-9 2020, with the first day being a workshop day.

We seek contributions in any area of quantitative microscopy. Presentations that demonstrate new approaches and methodologies are particularly welcome, including but not limited to algorithmic and software developments, physical modeling approaches, etc. The use of quantitative imaging techniques in biological applications is also of great interest. For submission details, please see the conference website (www.quantitativebioimaging.com).

Submission deadline (extended): 9 September, 2019.
The abstract submission site is:  https://www.quantitativebioimaging.com/qbi2020/abstract-submission/

In addition to contributed talks we will feature minisymposia on:

  • Imaging in Immunology
  • Volumetric Imaging
  • New frontiers in single molecule microscopy
  • Correlative microscopy
  • Spatial Statistics in Microscopy
  • Bioimage Informatics
  • Modern machine learning approaches to image analysis and uncertainty quantification in microscopy
  • Tissue multiplexing techniques and applications in oncology

The planned conference workshops are:

  • Spatial statistics in bioimaging analysis
  • Introduction to scientific programming for image analysts
  • Cluster and photon counting analysis
  • Single molecule localization microscopy flight simulator

A new feature of the conference is a challenges session:

  • Challenges in subcellular trafficking

plenary discussion panel on

  • Uses and misuses of machine learning

The keynote speakers of the conference are:

  • Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Janelia Farm
  • Wolfgang Baumeister, Max Planck Institute, Munich
