Spatial Analysis for Biological Imaging Workshop

29 Mar 2023, 01:00 AM

This workshop will be held at the Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, London, UK between March 29-30, 2023.


[Please note this event is not organised by the CRUK Convergence Science Centre, see below for more info]


Workshop Aim: Imaging technologies play an ever increasing role in biomedical and clinical investigations as they allow the observation of important spatial processes. While such imaging approaches have undergone major technological developments through, for example, the development of novel detectors and sample preparation approaches, the analysis of the resulting data has often lagged behind. This is even more problematic as the amount of data that can and is being generated is very large.


Methods for spatial analysis, including spatial statistics, machine learning, and topological data analysis, hold significant promise to be able to resolve many outstanding analytical problems. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a means for leading researchers in bioimaging, digital pathology and histology to present their latest findings and also to, for the first time, bring these communities together as it is expected that exchange of ideas could be of major benefit to all sides.
