Among the three major components of imaging based research - laboratory experiment, microscopy and image analysis - nearly 60% of life science researchers acknowledged that "Image Analysis is the most difficult".
Training researchers on image data analysis is crucial to ensure that they can get the most out of the data that they generate. Several initiatives are active in developing training solutions in image data management and analysis : Neubias (www.neubias.org), EuroBioimaging (www.eurobioimaging.eu), Global Bio Imaging (www.eurobioimaging.eu/content-page/global-bioimaging-project ) and Elixir (www.elixir-europe.org ) .
Euro-BioImaging, Global BioImaging, Neubias and ELIXIR are now offering a hackathon to bring together training providers from the imaging community and contributors to the ELIXIR Training Platform in order to create a curated collection of training materials on data management and analysis and facilitate their Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Re-usability.
Dates: 14-15 May 2018
Location: University of Cambridge
Audience: Bioimage analysts from NEUBIAS, trainers and developers working on the Global BioImaging (GBI) project, as well as ELIXIR’s Bioschemas and TeSS developers and anyone willing to contribute to: (i) foster new collaborations between ELIXIR and key initiatives from the image analysis community, (ii) create a curated collection of training materials on data management and analysis and (iii) facilitate their Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Re-usability.
