The BioImage informatics, BII, is an internationally recognized meeting on image informatics for the life sciences. Newest findings and applications are presented by leading scientists and complimented by cutting-edge technological developments. This 'must attend' event is set in the historical yet bustling city of Leuven, a blink of an eye from Brussels, the heart of Europe.
The BII was created in 2005 to establish a unique communication network between the different scientists working in the field of BioImage Informatics.

Different aspects of the BioImage Informatics are covered with topics ranging from digital pathology, over storage, data mining, screening biological data sets, pipelines, learning, and fundamental algorithms.
We have taken care to balance our program to represent different topics and tools from applications over novel tools to machine learning and data mining. The meeting will include conference sessions, company hosted workshops, a poster session and a company exhibition. Participants with any level of experience will benefit from attending this meeting.
Please have a look at our program page for a quick overview of the symposium.
International target audience and networking
We are expecting in total to have approximately 200 attendees. Given the potential of BioImage Informatics and the meeting perspective, we expect a broad international attendance of key opinion leaders and expert technology developers, and basic and advanced technology users.
Moreover we hope that different fields will meet for community networking with colleagues from both academia and industry.
