11th Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis in Biology Workshop
Inria Rennes-Bretagne Atlantique centre, France
May 25-27, 2016

The SSIAB 2016 is part of a cycle of Danish-French conference, initiated in 1996 and held every two years alternately in Denmark and France. This 11th edition will take place in May 25-27 2016 in Rennes (Bretagne) at the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) Centre. It is jointly organized by the Serpico team of Inria, the Mathematics research institute IRMAR of the University of Rennes 1 and the Inra Institute of Genetics, Environment and Plant Protection (IGEPP).

This workshop is devoted to spatial statistics and image analysis and their applications in biology (e.g. agriculture, epidemiology, ecology, health and environment). It aims to bring together a limited number of participants (40 max.) interested in spatial statistics in general and specifically applied to biological problems. Each participant makes a presentation. Most participants come regularly to these meetings but new speakers (not necessarily French or Danish) are invited to each edition. Part of the presentations is reserved for ending PhD students and young researchers. This event is part of the thematic semester “Statistics” of the Centre Henri Lebesgue.

This international meeting on statistics applied to biological problematics will be the opportunity to meet international experts on the field to increase the visibility of this issue in the laboratory and in the community. The interventions of speakers and exchanges are likely to develop new partnerships and increase the involvement of IRMAR, INRA and INRIA colleagues on this topic.

It will play an important role in the growth of the field by providing not only a forum for developers but also by its specific aim of bringing together the users. This workshop will be an opportunity to learn more about this emerging technology and its applications in our/your research. This workshop of contributed talks will cover the state of the art as well as the recent advances in Light sheet Microscopy.

Registration to this event is free but mandatory. It includes coffee breaks and lunch. We ask all participants to register simply by email to – indicating in the subject LSFM, and specifying your name and affiliation. Upon registration, everyone can submit an abstract of their research project for a possible oral presentation or eposters.

Dear colleagues, dear partners

On behalf of the French Society of Microscopy SFµ, we would like to warmly welcome you in the charming and cultural city of Lyon for the 16th European Microscopy Congress – EMC2016, from August 28th to September 2nd, 2016, organized under the auspices of the European Microscopy Society (EMS) and the International Federation of Microscopy Societies (IFSM).

After having hosted the International Congress on Electron Microscopy in Grenoble in 1970, then in Paris in 1994, it is a great pleasure and a great honour for us to invite you to be part of this new international event on microscopy that will be again in France.

Since the 12th European Congress on Electron Microscopy EUREM in Brno, Czech Republic in 2000, this European meeting, which is held every four years, has evolved to cover not only electron microscopy but a much larger panel of all the microscopies. We clearly intend to promote in the next EMC2016 a pluri- and multi-disciplinary atmosphere, mixing, photonic, near field, ionic and electron-based approaches, with an extension to complementary techniques such as spectroscopies, atom probe and X-ray tomography.

Our goal is to organize an unforgettable meeting for all attendees, and offer you, as partner companies and exhibitors, fruitful conditions to participate, animate, exchange, and show to the whole community all your expertise and new products, on booths or during workshop sessions. This remains a definitive driving force for better knowledge and advances not only in microscopies, but more generally in science for the human being safety, care and comfort.

France-Bioimaging will participate to the workshop lunch and will have a stand.


November 23-24, 2015
Institut Pasteur, Paris

– Programme

This is the 3rd edition of the annual symposium on Bioimage Informatics, organized by the GdR 2588 (Functional Microscopy of living organisms) and supported by France Bioimaging.

The workshop will feature two sessions covering rapidly developing topics of Bioimage Informatics:

Computational Imaging (Nov. 23rd): this session aims at gathering the computational and physical approaches that support imaging methods. This includes talks on inverse problems, compressed sensing, source separation and super-resolution. Presented applications will include many different imaging techniques including confocal microscopy, super resolution microscopy, Optical Projection Tomography, TIRF microscopy.

Computational Phenotyping (Nov. 24th): this session focuses on the automatic analysis of imaging data to derive biological information across different scales. This involves techniques for image segmentation and quantification, machine learning and statistics. Applications will cover different scales of organization (from cells to organisms) and will include examples from High Content Screening, plant phenotyping and spatial transcriptomics.

Additionally, this year’s edition will feature an interactive Poster/Demo session on Nov. 23rd (after the oral session). Posters will have to be introduced by their presenters in the form of a short (~2-minute) oral presentation prior to the session. Demos are dedicated to participants who wish to showcase some software or (small-sized) equipment linked to the topics of the workshop, where a poster format might be less adapted. We therefore warmly invite all participants to come and showcase their work!


The international conference “Physical chemistry of the cell : innovative bioimaging” (PhysChemCell2015) will be held in Orsay at the Curie Institute (Bat 111, campus of Paris Sud University) from 4th to 6th November 2015.

The conference will bring together an interdisciplinary community to discuss the latest advances in the fields of analytical cell imaging. Conference topics will cover cell signaling and trafficking studies, the development of new organic, inorganic or genetically encoded probes, innovative imaging contrasts and instruments, and will explore their potential for in vivo and biomedical applications.

The European BioIMage Analysis Symposium (2nd Edition) aims at enhancing the usage of analysis tools and to increase the communication within the image analysis community. Developers from various software packages and libraries are invited for presenting their recent activities and Image analysts and biologists will then be updated with the latest scene of the tool development, and at the same time are expected to provide feedback and to get in direct contact with the developers of the tools that they are using in everyday research. Moreover, we will discuss on the further development of image analysis community.

QBI, a conference focused on Quantitative BioImage

Bandeau QBI

2015 Quantitative BioImaging Conference, January 7-9, Institut Pasteur in Paris, France.


The development of a conference on Quantitative Bioimaging (3rd Edition) followed from the recognition that there is no conference to date that addresses the analysis of bioimaging data in a focused and interdisciplinary manner. Therefore the emphasis of our single track conference will be the presentation and detailed discussion of methodological advances. We hope to have many of the major researchers in quantitative imaging represented at the conference. We plan to have a very interactive meeting with the opportunity for significant scientific exchange between the participants. We hope to attract contributors with differing backgrounds in biology, chemistry, physics and engineering.


Featuring :

We will introduce several interesting features into the conference: Oral presentations will focus around introductory and survey presentations on topics of importance and will be followed by topical “plenary” poster sessions. In addition, we will also have a session and roundtable discussion on the development and maintenance of software in a laboratory environment.
