This 3-day interactive training event will take place at the Institut Pasteur in Paris from the 20th to the 22nd of November 2019.

The program is divided into 2 parts :

Part 1 (Wednesday 20th of November) will include conferences and round tables on personal development in core facilities in the morning, and 3 parallel workshops in the afternoon.

Part 2 (Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of November) will include workshops in the morning (« How to identify and demonstrate your skills » and « Storytelling, communication and oral fluency ») and extensive discussions with Institut Pasteur core facility staff in the afternoon, on the occasion of visits to technological platforms and animal facilities.

You can either register for the whole event [Part 1 + Part 2] or for Part 1 only.

Part 1 only: you will have to choose by order of preference the workshop you would like to attend in the afternoon of November 20th.

Part1 + Part 2: you will additionally have to choose the Institut Pasteur facilities that you wish to visit, by order of preference (NB : only 20 persons will be selected for Part 2). Each participant will be able to visit 2 different core facilities (at least one of them outside their own field of specialty).

Targeted audience : Any person already working in a core facility or interested by core facility careers, in particular

* Technicians, engineers and scientists working in Life Science core facilities

Après le succès de Bordeaux en 2017 et à l’occasion de son soixantième anniversaire, la Société Française des Microscopies (Sfµ) a choisi la ville de Poitiers pour accueillir la seizième édition de son colloque. Suite aux traditionnels ateliers de formation qui se dérouleront le lundi 1er juillet 2019, le colloque se tiendra du 2 au 5 juillet 2019 dans les locaux de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Poitiers (ENSIP).

Le colloque de la Sfµ a vocation à rassembler la plus large communauté autour des études développant ou faisant usage des microscopies (électronique, optique, à champ proche, sonde atomique tomographique, …). Le programme scientifique s’articulera autour de douze symposia : quatre orientés Sciences du Vivant (SDV), quatre dédiés aux Sciences des Matériaux (SDV) et quatre symposia communs (SDV/SDM) à l’image de l’interdisciplinarité qui caractérise notre société. Les thèmes abordés dans plusieurs symposia seront l’occasion de pérenniser notre partenariat avec le GN-MEBA qui tiendra ses journées semestrielles à la même période à Poitiers. Le programme scientifique du colloque et la liste des conférenciers et conférencières invités sont consultables ici.

Il est encore temps….. N’hésitez pas à déposer vos résumés !!!!
Après avoir créé un compte dans l’espace Sfμ, vous pourrez soumettre vos contributions: https://colloque.sfmu.fr/fr/inscription/soumission/

Les inscriptions au colloque sont ouvertes à un tarif préférentiel jusqu’au 15 mai 2019: https://colloque.sfmu.fr/fr/inscription/frais/

Le 25 mai 2019, l’Institut Cochin vous invite à découvrir ses outils innovants d’imagerie biologique et leurs applications en recherche biomédicale.

 

 

In February 2019, France officially became a founding member of the “Euro-Bioimaging” research infrastructure (EuBI ERIC), and the national infrastructure France BioImaging (FBI) will host the EuBI French Node, open to all European scientists applying for access.

The EuBI ERIC (https://www.eurobioimaging-interim.eu) is the European Research Infrastructure for Imaging Technologies in Biological and Biomedical Sciences and provides open physical user access to a broad range of state-of-the-art technologies in biological and biomedical imaging for life scientists. In addition, EuBI will offer image data support and training for infrastructure users and providers.

As a former “Node Candidate” of the Euro BioImaging ESFRI project and leader of the EuBI Working Group dedicated to training during the preparatory phase II of the project (See WP7 deliverables), France Bioimaging is now the only French node validated as a single entity in this new European research infrastructure. FBI core facilities will thus be participating directly in the activities carried out by the EuBI ERIC, opening their premises to EuBI user access and training activities.

A cette occasion, les plateformes d’imagerie France BioImaging participantes organiseront des activités grand public lors d’une journée “portes ouvertes” le weekend du 25-26 Mai 2019.
Ces activités s’articuleront autour:
– de l’histoire de « l’Imagerie Biologique au CNRS », présentée conjointement par les différents sites de l’infrastructure FBI;
– de diverses animations avec l’objectif de montrer l’éventail impressionnant des outils de l’Imagerie Biologique aujourd’hui et leur fonctionnement,
– des découvertes/applications fantastiques que l’Imagerie Biologique peut apporter en Biologie.

 

 

 

 

 

The abstract submission site for QBI 2019, Rennes, France, is now open. The conference will be held 9-11 January 2019, with pre-conference workshops on 8 January, 2019.

We seek contributions in any area of quantitative microscopy. Presentations that demonstrate new approaches in detail 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.

NEUBIAS is a COST Action which brings together life-scientists, microscopists, bioimage analysts and image analysis developers from 36 European, three neighboring countries + Australia, Singapore and the USA (www.neubias.org).

NEUBIAS is a forum to exchange the newest findings, applications, and cutting-edge developments in Bioimage Analysis, machine learning, data mining, and storage. European Bioimage Analysts, an emergent group within the bioimaging analysis community, organize this event, bringing together an international, interdisciplinary community of scientists in life and computer sciences.

Andreas Girod and Aymeric Fouquier d’Hérouël will be hosting the conference in Luxembourg, which will include a Training School for Early Career Investigators, a Training School for Bioimage Analysts, a Taggathon to continue building the NEUBIAS online resources for the Bioimage Analysis Community. Moreover, the Bioimage Analysis Symposium will be organized from the 6th to the 8th of February, 2018, which will include a new Satellite workshop open for bioimage analysts on the 5th of February (afternoon).

The symposium will highlight Keynote lectures from Susan Cox, Kevin Eliceiri, and Ivo Sbalzarini and will include talks from other 14 exciting invited speakers. Also, contributed talks will be selected from abstracts. The NEUBIAS symposium will feature signature sessions: the Call for Help or “image clinics” session (C4H), the Open source Software Lounge (OsSL), the Panel Discussions as well as company Workshops and Digital Posters.

The CytoData Symposium brings together the image-based morphological profiling community to exchange new developments in the field. We will kick things off with full-day symposium on Sep 21, featuring speakers from industry and academia. We will factor in enough time so you connect with each other during and after the event. The 2-day hackathon (Sep 24-25) will have you fully immersed in the techniques underlying profiling! We will form teams and tackle some exciting problems in the field. So pack your laptops and prepare to hack!

Cette journée, ImabioTED, se déroulera de 10h30 à 16h à l’institut de Biologie du Développement de Marseille Luminy. Chaque industriel présentera deux innovations technologiques sur une durée de 10 min maximum. La communication sera pleinement ouverte et à destination des chercheurs ingénieurs intéressés par l’imagerie et de ses dernières innovations.
