Chères et chers collègues,

Veuillez trouver ci-dessous l'annonce du congrès « Quantitative BioImaging - QBI » organisé a Rennes du 8 ou 11 janvier 2019 au Couvent des Jacobins. Ce congrès réunit des scientifiques de disciplines très variées (biologie cellulaire, biophysique, optique, mathématiques appliqués, informatique…) en rapport avec l’imagerie biologique et cellulaire.

La soumission est sous la forme d'un résumé d’une page / date limite de soumission: 15 septembre.

Il n’y a pas de frais d'inscription pour les académiques et les repas son offerts aux participants !

Dear Colleagues,

The abstract submission site for QBI 2019, Rennes, France, is now open. The conference will be held 9-11 January 2019, with pre-conference workshops on 8 January, 2019.

We seek contributions in any area of quantitative microscopy. Presentations that demonstrate new approaches in detail are particularly welcome, including but not limited to algorithmic and software developments, physical modeling approaches, etc. The use of quantitative imaging techniques in biological applications is also of great interest. For submission details, please see the conference website (

Submission deadline: September 15th, 2018

Registration fees for academics: None (supported by external funding)

Local accomodation: Dinners and lunches are offered to all participants

In addition to contributed talks we will feature special sessions on:

  • Machine learning and microscopy image analysis
  • New developments in single molecule microscopy
  • Subcellular trafficking in cell biology
  • Microscopy software development
  • Microscopy in biopharma
  • Structured illumination: a review of the state of the art

The pre-conference workshops are:
