The BioImage Informatics (BII) conference will bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of image informatics for the life sciences. The BII conference was created in 2005 to establish a unique communication network among the scientists working in the field of BioImage Informatics. The BioImage Informatics conference covers a wide range of topics that would be classified under the following themes:
Challenges: Concurrent with the conference, we will run two challenges to evaluate image stitching and nucleus counting algorithms. Details regarding these challenges can be found below.
Submission process and guidelines:
The paper and poster submissions will be reviewed by the organizing committee. All submissions should be between 1 and 4 pages with a selection of preferred oral or poster presentation type. Both types of submissions should follow the template. All submissions should be submitted to bioimage [at] nist.gov (.)
To promote scientific collaboration, we will distribute submitted abstracts on-line after the conference. Selected contributions will also be invited as manuscripts for a special issue of a major bioinformatics journal.
