Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology

 

Workshop XIIIth edition

25-28 September, 2019

France

EuBI will also present at this event!

The "Tumour targeting, Imaging, radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its thirteenth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 25th to 28th of September 2019 in Le Bono, West of France.

30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers.

The 13th international workshop edition entitled “Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology“ will confront the points of view and problems of the various disciplines, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, working for the development of imaging in Oncology.

This workshop will focus on the latest advances in imaging techniques: PET, SPECT, MRI, US, Infra-red Bioluminescence, Fluorescence, Photoacoustic, CyTof Imaging, Microscopy, Spectroscopy and Raman Imaging. It aims to address innovative developments in chemistry(synthesis of tracers, chelates, contrast agents, fluorescent probes, etc.), biology (identification of new tumour targets, etc.) and physics (instrumentation, methodological aspects of image analysis, radiomics ...), through the following sessions:

Session 1: Contribution of imaging in diagnosis

Session 2: Contribution of imaging in therapeutic follow-up and evaluation

Session 3: Emerging imaging technologies

Plenary lectures will be given by experts in the different scientific fields addressed by the workshop. A number of selected oral presentations given by young researchers will complete the different scientific sessions. This workshop aims at sharing scientific results and at facilitating exchanges between experienced and young researchers in a fast advancing field.

To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.

 

The event is kindly endorsed by the European Society for Molecular Imaging.

Awards: 30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses.Candidates must submit an abstract and must be selected as speaker in one of the scientific sessions to benefit from these awards. Selected candidates will be notified by June 25th 2018.

Location: This event will take place in the “Manoir de Kerdréan” in Le Bono, in the Gulf of Morbihan, at about two hours from Nantes in West of France.

Abstract submission: Young researchers are asked to submit an abstract presenting their current research projects and results for one of the three scientific sessions of the workshop. Abstract must be in English and contain a maximum of 300 words. A model is available on the website at http://www.cgo-workshop-vecto.fr/. Abstracts will be selected on scientific quality and pertinence. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The organizing committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstracts will be presented orally. Due to the limitation of the number of attendees, early registration and abstract submission are strongly advised.

Please, submit your abstract before May 17th, 2019.

Registration: Deadline for registration is June 14th, 2019.

Student/Post-Doc selected for oral presentation: Free

Other attendees: 450 €

Registration includes: Full accommodation/meals from Sept 25th dinner until Sept 28th lunch.

Due to the limited number of attendees, an early registration and abstract submission is strongly advised.

FAIR Data Stewardship:

Digital data scholarship for wet lab scientists

27-29 May, 2019

The target audience is wet-lab scientists – from industry and academia – and graduate students in the Life Sciences who wish to improve their digital scholarship on data handling. Some basic experience with programming and scripting languages like python, perl, R, matlab, etc. are an advantage, but not needed. The course is also relevant for Data Stewards who are supporting the life science researchers.

The course will introduce the trainees to important concepts of data stewardship. We start with a general introduction covering the data life cycle, the FAIR principles and a definition of data stewardship and data stewards.

The course will introduce the trainees to important concepts of data stewardship. We start with a general introduction covering the data life cycle, the FAIR principles and a definition of data stewardship and data stewards.

We will pass the stages of the data life cycle in more detail in the training modules of this 3 day course.

  • Day 1: Why use a data management plan and what for? On day one trainees will investigate data management plans, which types are there and how they should be used.
  • Day 2: Mastering the data chaos during the research phase. On day two the course highlights how to work with data during the research phase, explaining how to create well formatted data which helps in the second module of day two to make data interoperable already during the active research phase.
  • Day 3: Boost your visibility and get cited for your data! On day three trainees will have an in-depth at persistent identifiers, different use cases and types of identifiers. Finally we are closing the data life cycle by making data fit for sharing, archiving and publishing. The training is organised by DTL and delivered as a joint effort by DTL partners.

 

You can find all the information, including the full programme and registration possibilities here: https://www.aanmelder.nl/helis-fair-data-stewardship-course

This course is part of the Data Analysis and Stewardship theme of Helis Academy and is organised by DTL and DTL collaborators. Info about other courses in the theme of Data Analysis and Stewardship can be found on the Helis Academy website and on the Helis Academy page on the DTL website.

 

 

SCANDEM 2019 conference (12-14, June) – the 70th annual meeting of the Nordic Microscopy Society in Gothenburg!

 

The SCANDEM 2019 is designed to bring experts, researchers, technicians and exhibitors together from different life and material sciences imaging modalities to stimulate knowledge exchange and the formation of new collaborations. SCANDEM association website: http://www.scandem.org/

The program will offer an attractive combination of lectures and poster sessions from electron and light microscopy, X-ray to image analysis, with poster presenters selected for short talks. It will also provide excellent opportunities for discussions and informal gatherings. Take the opportunity to challenge your brain, create a new network, and maintain existing relations! The parallel sessions will cover the following topics within imaging research: Imaging across scales/multimodal Microscopy (Correlative microscopy, cryo-EM, X-rays, 3D volume EM, etc.); Live & Fast super-resolution microscopy – Frontiers in imaging of ultrafast processes; Molecular and Functional Imaging; Quantitative high spatial resolution spectroscopy; In situ Microscopy;  Artificial Intelligence in big data analysis, and computational microscopy. In addition, to notable scientists, the meeting will also attract younger researchers and technicians who are building their careers and are looking to interact with leaders in the field.  We hope that you will be able to join us in Gothenburg for what is certain to be a very exciting and educational meeting.
