While slide scanners have been around for about 20 years. The output of these are giga-pixel images. Only recently have these started piqueing the interest of the scientific research community.
In the beginning, simply viewing was a challenge. That era is luckily behind us: The images (whole slide images) can now easily be viewed on a computer screen via dedicated software. The natural follow-up question then becomes: what do you do with these images?
As imaging is now recognized as a new kind of omics, it is time to unlock the potential of this new datasource.
No-one can do this alone, as whole slide imaging typically encompasses a combination of various disciplines, including engineering, medical specialties, and increasingly computer science. Sounds like the birth of bioinformatics all over again!
Curious what the future of pathology looks like? Curious of finding out what all the hub-hub about computer assisted diagnostics is like? Tired of analyzing small RX or CT imagery? Come join us in Athens to talk with the people that are actually doing the work (and not just talking about it).
This workshop is organized as a SIG at its parent conference, ECCB 2018. For more info, go to http://www.eccb18.org.
