Other Events
Poster Neubias 2020

NEUBIAS2020 conference is a new yearly meeting point for the BioImage Analysis community, and we, the organizers from the NEUBIAS network, are very glad to invite you to participate in the first appointment, to happen in Lisbon (Portugal) on 12-17th of February 2017, hosted and co-organized by the Gulbenkian Institute of Science.

The conference aims to promote knowledge- and technological- transfer between all the players of the BioImage Analysis Community: Life scientists, Image Analysis and Software Developers, Microscopists, BioImaging Facility staff, and most importantly: Biomage Analysts, a new profession in Life Science that NEUBIAS aims to support and promote.

In brief, the event articulates in 4 events:

  • A Training School for Early Career Investigators. 25 seats available, on selection.
    (12-15 Feb. Oeiras, Portugal). Application deadline 30/11/2016. Travel Grants Available.
  • A Training School for BioImage Analysts, 25 seats available, on selection.
    (12-15 Feb. Oeiras, Portugal). Application deadline 30/11/2016. Travel Grants Available.
  • A Taggathon (working meeting of NEUBIAS to develop repositories and benchmarking), on invitation.  (13-15 Feb. Oeiras, Portugal)


  • A BioImage Analysis Symposium: 15-17th February, 2017 – in Lisbon, Portugal.


The Symposium aims to offer a broad view over the latest developments and updates in Bioimage analysis, including a Showcase giving exposure to Open software packages and tools updates, companies products, community round tables, career path debates and community progress report.
Bioimage Analysis will be covered as a broad field of Research, Technology-development and Service-for-Data-Producers (i.e. researchers in Life Science) in the context of many types of BioImage data: Optical Microscopy, Electron Microscopy, Medical Imaging, among others.

We hope to attract many of you to Lisbon in February.

More About NEUBIAS: Mobility Grants, Careers, Action.
NEUBIAS is a network Action funded by COST (, aiming to maximize the impact of advances in imaging technology on the Life Sciences, and to boost the productivity of bioimaging-based research projects in Europe. The Action intends to provide a stronger identity to Bioimage Analysts by organising a new type of meeting fostering interactions between all stakeholders (i.e. NEUBIAS 2020).

NEUBIAS also provides mobility funds for scientists willing to expand their knowledge in Bioimage Analysis and/or to develop Image Analysis capabilities for their research project. Check the next Call for Short Term Scientific Missions, closing on November 15th, 2016.

NEUBIAS also needs the input from the whole community to devise best-practice guidelines for the career path of BioImage Analysis, a new profession still not fully recognized in the field. If your work activity embraces Bioimage Analysis to support Life Science (as a service, collaboration etc…), please take 5 minutes to fill our new “Career Consultation”:
