The Image Processing Work Group acknowledges the need for applied image processing in biological microscopy and aims to work to improve awareness of image processing in the field of biological research and also knowledge of and access to image processing solutions in microscopy based projects. An exchange of expertise and methods between the members will allow us to identify the current state of knowledge and also areas that will require targeted efforts for improvement.
It was agreed to organize a workshop on image processing aimed at the needs of the current Work Group towards the end of the year 2013 at the CRG in Barcelona. This will be a good opportunity to define common interests and relevant topics for further work. It will also serve as a good platform for the organization of a Course or Workshop on Applied Image Processing which will be aimed at a wider audience.
