Workshop announcement:

We would like to announce our workshop concerning analysis of microCT data at the Institute for Biology at the University of Leipzig in the framework of the DFG project RE 3454/4-1.

We focus in this course on analyses and reconstructions of data that are generated in synchrotron based micro-CT scans (for example from synchrotron facilities such as the DESY in Hamburg or the Paul Scherer Institute in Villigen). The workshop is taking place from the 16th to the 19th of May 2017 at the new Cip-pool of the Institute for Biology, Talstraße 33, 04103 Leipzig.

Workshop organizer is Bjoern von Reumont (University Leipzig) and lecturer is Alexander Blanke (University of Hull). The maximum number of external participants is 10. The cip-pool is equipped with Intel i5 machines with 16 GB or 10 GB Memory. User are encouraged to bring their own Laptops if these fulfill minimum requirements of an i5/i7 CPU and at least 8GB of RAM (16GB preferred). The workshop will focus on open source software applications for analysis of microCT datasets, however, depending on the progress during the workshop an extended toolkit for metaanalyses such as geometric morphometrics and mechanics will be covered in brief. The workshop is intended for absolute beginners in analysis of microCT data.

A more detailed programme will follow after application deadline on 15th of April. The course language will be English or German depending on the composition of the workshop participants. The course is free of charge, accommodation and meals need to be covered by participants. One guest room free of charge is available for participants from abroad. For applications, please send a CV and a letter of motivation to the longest e-mail address in science:

Best regards and until soon in Leipzig, Bjoern and Alex!
