5th International Symposium on Image-based Systems Biology
The general experience that “a picture is worth a thousand words” also holds in the field of systems biology: Image-based Systems Biology is a modern approach that aims to extract spatio-temporal information contained in images in a form that it can be used to model morphological, functional and dynamical aspects of biological processes. Image-based Systems Biology seeks to take full advantage of the information in images and establishes an essential connection between experimental and theoretical examination of biological processes at a quantitative level. This approach includes:
- acquisition and automated analysis of image data for high-content and high-throughput screening;
- quantitative description of biological processes by appropriate characteristic measures;
- construction of image-derived spatio-temporal models and predictive computer simulations.
Researchers from all fields are invited to communicate their results focused on Image-based Systems Biology in order to exchange novel scientific methods and to share recent achievements from image-driven research in biology. Joint studies of experiment and theory will be highly welcomed. Furthermore, demonstrations of methods for accurate segmentation and classification of regions of interest or object-tracking that can be applied for high-content and high-throughput screening are of interest, as well as computational methods for translating images into mathematical models ranging from differential equations to agent-based methods.
The International Symposium on Image-based Systems Biology is taking place biennially since the year 2012 at the HKI-Center for Systems Biology of Infection in Jena, Germany. This year, IbSB 2020 is a Satellite-Symposium of the International Conference on Nanoscopy ICON-Europe 2020 that takes place in Jena from September 28 to October 1.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Jena on this occasion!
Due to the current situation of the corona pandemic it may be possible that we will be forced to cancel the IbSB symposium at a later time point. In this case, we will inform all participants about this immediately and you will receive your registration fee back. We can however not pay for any travel expenses or hotel reservations that you have made and kindly ask you to take care for this yourself.
You can always contact us in case of further questions.
