BioImage Informatics 2017

September 19-21, Banff, Canada

The BioImage Informatics (BII) conference is the premier meeting on image informatics for life sciences. It aims to establish a unique communication network for researchers working in the fields of image processing, computer vision, and image-based analytics, for applications in biology. Since the first conference in 2005, it has been attracting computer scientists and biologists from all over the world.

BII 2017 will be held September 19-21 in the picturesque Banff National Park in Canada. It will feature the newest methods, technologies, research findings, and applications in the field. The conference will include invited talks by leading scientists as well as oral and poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts. Participants with any level of experience will greatly benefit from attending this conference.
