I’m pleased to announce that we will be hosting another QuPath workshop at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology. Pete Bankhead, the creator of QuPath, will join us for another dose of image analysis fun. Please sign up here: http://tiny.cc/QuPath
QuPath is open source software for whole slide image analysis and digital pathology (https://qupath.github.io/). Over the past three years, it has become established as one of the most popular digital pathology platforms worldwide, with more than 65,000 downloads and used in over 209 publications so far.
QuPath has been designed for a wide range of users, including pathologists, biologists, image analysts, and machine learning experts. It aims to make sophisticated techniques accessible and user-friendly to immediately solve a range of common analysis problems in pathology, while also offering a customizable platform to develop entirely new algorithms.
This workshop will show QuPath in action, demonstrating how to move from raw images to a better understanding of disease processes.
This year the workshop will start on Thursday afternoon (2020/02/20) - you are all welcome to start arriving around 1 pm for light lunch. Please arrive early if you had computer problems or weren’t able to download the files. We will start the workshop at 2 pm and it will run until ~8 pm that day followed by food and merrymaking. The next day, on Friday 21st, we will start at 9 am and finish in the evening. Similar to the day before, there will be food and something to toast.
We are planning the sessions, more details will be available soon. If you want to contribute (give a talk, share pathologist perspective, describe your image analysis solution in QuPath or present a well-defined image analysis problem, provide an open dataset) please let me know - and we will gladly waive your fee.
We will be asking for a small contribution from participants to help cover our costs. It will not exceed $50 for non-profit and $314.15 for for-profit participants. The return on this investment is phenomenal. If you are unable to contribute due to financial hardship, let us know and we will find a way to help you. We will send you more information on the payment process later.
I’m very sorry for the short notice; I understand that some of you would need more time to arrange your travel. We will try to record this event (and possibly broadcast it live).
Please distribute this to your colleagues who might be interested, and I hope to see you soon in sunny San Diego!
With warm regards,
