Digital image analysis for scientific applications (DIASA)

A new instance of this course will run early spring 2023. This course aims at giving doctoral students and researchers from different disciplines sufficient understanding to solve basic computerized image analysis problems. The course will also offer an introduction to a number of freely available software tools, preparing the participants to start using computerized image analysis in their own research. The course will be in a hybrid format.
More information available here.
Application deadline: February 25, 2023
