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:
- Applications to cell therapy, digital pathology, and regenerative medicine
- Data mining and machine learning of image information
- Advanced visualization of bioimages and image derived information
- Storage and repositories of biological data sets
- Collaborative frameworks, pipelines, and environments
- Fundamental algorithms (e.g., calibration, segmentation, tracking, feature-based image analysis, data-driven and hypothesis-driven modeling)
- Advanced imaging approaches and instruments
- Reproducibility and large scale imaging experiments
- Other topics relevant to life science imaging and image informatics.
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.
