Workshops and Meetings


Workshop Funding:

If you are thinking about hosting your own workshop, IBIN can offer up to £1k for small bioimaging focussed workshops that promote ECR development and collaboration. If you’re interested in applying you can do so here, or email for more information.


Below are some workshops and meetings. If you would like to advertise here please email lists science conferences and meetings from around the world.


Technical challenges in realtime microscopy

Location: Glasgow

Date: 29th April 2020

Deadline: 13th March 2020


We will bring together a focused group of people who may be working on quite different applications and biological scenarios, but with a common need to deal with high data-rate imagery and processing, and/or realtime hardware feedback. The workshop is targeted both at people working on the technology side of imaging, and at technologically-literate biologists planning on conducting experiments that will require real-time image-based feedback etc. There is much knowledge and activity in this area distributed around the UK (and beyond), but currently also much “reinvention of the wheel” in individual labs.

The day will be a workshop-style meeting with the aim of sharing of expertise/knowledge for technical problems in realtime microscopy, and conversations over future aspirations, funding sources, networking and seeding of collaborations in realtime microscopy around the UK. Our intention is to have an open, forward-looking environment in which preliminary and aspiring work can be discussed freely.

Register here before 13th March.

Location: Glasgow

Date: 27th-28th August 2020

NOTICE2020 is a small-scale symposium on novel optical technology for cardiac electrophysiology and aims to create a synergy between the strongest proponents of optical imaging, microscopy and manipulation technology applied to investigate the heart.

The workshop covers a broad range of topic from studying electrical activity, mechanical function and heart structure from the cellular scale to whole organ level. Topics range from super-resolution techniques to coarse-resolution whole heart mapping, from imaging cardiac activity and correlating this activity to the underlying structure to manipulating cardiac activity with optogenetics.

NOTICE2020 is the second instalment, after our successful inauguration event NOTICE 2018 in Florence. You can help us make this meeting a success by downloading and distributing this flyer.
