Quantitative BioImaging 2013

Goals and Objectives

The Conference is the inaugural event of a planned conference series 'Quantitative Bioimaging,' which this year will have its main focus on single molecule microscopy.

The development of a conference on Quantitative Bioimaging followed from the recognition that there is no conference to date that addresses the analysis of bioimaging data in a focused and interdisciplinary manner. Therefore the emphasis of our single track conference will be the presentation and detailed discussion of methodological advances. We hope to have many of the major researchers in quantitative single molecule represented at the conference. We plan to have a very interactive meeting with the opportunity for significant scientific exchange between the participants. We hope to attract contributors with differing backgrounds in biology, chemistry, physics and engineering.

We will introduce several interesting features into the conference: Oral presentations will focus around introductory and survey presentations on topics of importance and will be followed by topical "plenary" poster sessions. In addition, we will also have a session and roundtable discussion on the development and maintenance of software in a laboratory environment.


This year the Quantitative Bioimaging conference will focus around the following topics:
