Image Analysis Methods in the Plant Sciences – Second International Workshop

The Centre for Plant Integrative Biology at the University of Nottingham will be hosting the Second International Workshop on Image Analysis Methods in the Plant Sciences 2-3 September 2013.

Topics covered include:

  • Plant science-based image analysis techniques from laboratory to field environments and subcellular to whole plant scales. This includes but is not limited to: 3D reconstruction; image segmentation; modelling motion; modelling growth; shape analysis & classification; colour analysis
  • User interaction and software tools for plant scientists
  • The image analysis-biology pipeline (Imaging and *-omics)
  • Novel and emerging plant imaging techniques
  • Biological challenges for plant image analysis

Keynote speaker: Jason Swedlow (University of Dundee)

Deadline for submissions and registration: 26 July

Organisers: Tony Pridmore (University of Nottingham), Andy French (University of Nottingham) and Hannah Dee (Aberystwyth University)

UK Plant Phenomics Network meeting – 15 April 2013

The next meeting of the UK Plant Phenomics Network will take place on the afternoon of Monday 15th April 2013 at the University of Dundee, as a satellite meeting to the annual conference of the UK Plant Sciences Federation 16-17 April.

The venue for the meeting is the Dalhousie Building (14 on University of Dundee campus map)

Final programme (uploaded 4 April)

Registration is now closed – but locals are still very welcome to attend the talks.

This follows on from the meeting last year in Rothamsted and will cover phenotyping across different scales, from cellular processes in individual plants through crop phenotyping to landscape and even whole ecosystem surveying. ┬áThe aims of the workshop are to encourage interactions between plant scientists interested in plant phenotyping and with scientists from other disciplines (such as computer science and engineering), to encourage the uptake of new technologies, and to develop commonly acceptable standards for data collection and integration with other “omic’s” style technologies.

The meeting will start with lunch at 12:00 (first talk at 13:00) and run until 17:30.

UK Plant Phenomics Network Kick-off Meeting

The UK Plant Phenomics Network kick-off meeting will take place at Rothamsted Research Conference Centre on Mon 22 October (10:00-16:30).

The aim of this one-day workshop is to bring together individuals and organisations already involved in phenotyping in the UK, and to draw in new participants from across the relevant disciplines and industries into the UK plant phenomics community.

Programme (updated 19 October)

Registration is now closed.
