Bin-BW ImageJ Scripting Workshop: Heidelberg May, 2019


May 8th (Wed) and 9th (Thu), 2019


As part of the initiative Bin-BW (Bioimage-Net Baden-Württemberg), the Math Clinic of the Heidelberg University and the Bioimaging Center of the University of Konstanz offers workshops in image analysis based on the open-source software ImageJ.

The two-day ImageJ scripting workshop teaches the ImageJ macro programming for biological/biomedical image analysis. The goal of the workshop is that participants acquire basic programming techniques for analyzing image data.

Participation is most fruitful for learners who are conducting biological or medical research and are already using (light) microscopy for quantification purposes, and also has some experiences in using ImageJ.

Participants should bring their own laptops. Instructions on how to install ImageJ is explained below.

Workshop contents can be viewed in the following textbook: ImageJ Macro Language, Kota Miura


The Bin-BW ImageJ workshop will take place at Heidelberg University - BioQuant, Im Neuenheimer Feld 267, Room 41

The schedule is shown in the table below.
