DTL Focus meeting: ‘Scalability of image storage and processing’

lctm-imageAdvances in biological and medical imaging are putting increasing demands on image storage and processing. Modern multicenter imaging studies may easily generate hundreds of terabytes of raw and processed image data for quantitative analyses. How can we in the imaging community ensure good data stewardship? We have invited colleagues from diverse imaging areas, ranging from molecular and cellular to population imaging, and from image acquisition to image processing, to discuss the common challenges.

This DTL Focus meeting is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the latest developments in FAIR data stewardship and hear firsthand experiences from collegues in the Dutch imaging community. Jason Swedlow from the University of Dundee (UK) will come over to update us on the status and possibilities of the Open Microscopy Environment.

DTL Focus meetings are facilitated by SURF.
