CPIB Summer School: Image Analysis for Biologists
3-5 September 2012 - University of Nottingham
The aims of this three-day residential course are to allow participants gain an understanding of image analysis approaches commonly used in the biological sciences, and confidence in applying them. The course comprises integrated lectures and computer-based practicals which will allow you to gain an understanding of image analysis approaches in a helpful, friendly environment.
The course will run from 10:00 on Monday 3 September until 16:00 on Wednesday 5 September at the Jubilee Campus of the University of Nottingham.
Target audience: PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with a biological background are particularly encouraged to attend, and no prior experience is assumed. Although many of the examples we use will be plant-based, we welcome applications from biologists from all sub-disciplines – you don’t have to be a plant scientist to attend.
Places are limited to 20 and applicants are asked to give their background and motivation for attending. Priority will be given to applicants who we think will benefit most from the course. We will review applications in the order that they come in, until all 20 places are full.
Thanks to support from CPIB, Syngenta and the Company of Biologists the course fee for 2012 is only £125 and this covers tuition, single en-suite accommodation for 2 nights, and all meals and refreshments.
