The spirit of this Summer School is inspired by the most prestigious school ever founded in France, Saint Flour, the influence of which has spread to generations of researchers in Mathematics. Since its establishment in Brittany in 1994, this school has become a worldwide reference. It is resolutely international (participants from more than twenty countries have participated to the previous editions) and accessible to young scientists. It is an open yet privileged place for exchanges and discussions of major on-going work. Informal and warm, at a location where the sea and the land combine in a time varying relation, this school brings together, every two years for ten days, the world great teachers and researchers in Biomedical Imaging.

For its 11th edition in 2014, it relocates in the wonderful facility of Saint Jacut de la Mer close to Saint Malo and Mont Saint Michel.

Additional information

Extensive 6 hours lectures, seminars, and discussions are organized at the highest level, but with the freedom of spirit that is the tradition of Brittany. The school objective is to contribute without any exclusion to advances in a rapidly evolving field, and to foster participation in the adventure of research. It provides up-to-date, state-of-art knowledge on emerging areas and addresses important issues dealing with complex, multivariate systems, going from basic to applied research.

Audience: The Summer School is open to graduate students (M.S., PhD), post doctoral scientists, image processing scientists, radiologists, biologists, researchers and engineers in industry.

We are pleased to announce the EMBL Master Course Bioimage Data Analysis to be held from Monday, 12 May – Friday ,16 May 2014.

This course will focus on computational methods for analyzing images of proteins, cells and tissues, to boost the learning process of participants who have an immediate need to deploy image analysis in their own research. For this the course extends from basic principles in ImageJ, Matlab and R to the actual implementation of workflows using scripting. We expect that increasing the image analysis literacy of the participants will greatly enhance their scope, creativity and achievements of own research projects. We aim to gather expert knowledge to organize a world-leading course for image analysis in the field of biology.

The course will take place in Heidelberg, Germany at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre.

Registration and motivation letter deadline is February 25, 2014.

Please visit our course website for more details, including course schedule and list of confirmed speakers:

You are welcome to circulate this announcement to interested members and groups within your institution.

We look forward to welcoming you to Heidelberg, Germany.

Dear Colleagues,


The next Winter Conference of the European Society for Molecular Imaging on “IMAGING THE DEVELOPMENT” might be of interest for you.


The one-week conference will take place from 19-24 January 2014 at the Ecole de Physique in Les Houches, France.


The set-up is very similar to the Gordon Conferences or the original Keystone symposia in the US. It would be great if you could join us in the French Alps.


Deadline for abstract submission is 8 October 2013 – see!

Among all domains of biological science, development is one for which the quality and relevance of observations depend drastically on non-destructive methods. The secret life of embryos and fetuses remained terra incognita for scientists. In the last decades the progress of non-invasive imaging has completely changed our view – read more at
