9th NorMIC Workshop on Microscopy Image Processing -Nov 29th to Dec 2nd 2022

The NorMIC series of workshops aims to teach biological researchers (PhD students, engineers, postdocs and young PIs) the principles of biological microscopes and image processing.

Time and place: Nov. 29, 2022–Dec. 2, 2022,  IBV UiO, Oslo, Norway

Tentative Schedule

Registration is closed. Registration confirmations have been sent out to confirmed attendants on 7th Nov.

Thank you for your interest. We have too many registrations this year and won’t be able to accept any late applicant. All our lectures are open to public, feel free to join our lectures sessions.

Alternatively, the main teaching staff of this course will participate and contribute one single day Image J based image processing workshop in the Oslo BioInformatics Week at 12th Dec 2022. Register here (deadline is 30th Nov).

Location: IBV, Room 3205 (Computer Lab HoX). The room is equipped with desktop computers so participant do not need to bring own laptop.

The theory part of this course will cover: image formation, processing workflow, segmentation, filters, de-convolution, rendering and visualization, classification, AI-based processing.

Based on the feedback from the previous workshops, we have reduced the number of softwares we teach. This is to ensure that participants can have a more in depth knowledge of each software and will be able to perform relatively high end image processing task after they complete this course.

We will use the following software: Image J, Imaris, Nikon NIS, Deconvolution (Heintzmann Lab). Image J and Deconvolution are freeware and Nikon NIS and Imaris are commercial softwares but available at the NorMIC imaging platform.
