We are honored to host the fourth CytoData Symposium and Hackathon from Oct 28-30, 2019 at the DKFZ, Heidelberg, Germany! CytoData brings together the community of researchers mining microscopy image data.

Attendees will join together for a one-day symposium with seminars, lectures and social events followed by a two-day hackathon. We aspire to gather a diverse and engaged group of both image-based profiling experts, and members of related fields. Everyone involved will be an active contributor (even if remote), no passive absorption of others’ ideas allowed! We assume participants will be willing to share their analysis strategies, given that each laboratory’s “competitive advantage” in this field does not come from their data pre-processing pipeline but rather from computational techniques downstream of the steps covered in the event, and from biological discoveries derived from their unique data.

Sun Oct 27 Educational session (optional)
Learn about the latest tools and methods in single cell and image based profiling.

Mon Oct 28 Full day Symposium
Hear from leading researchers in the field from academia and industry.

Tue Oct 29 CytoData Hackathon - Day 1
Get oriented, and starting working on the first stage of the challenge.

Wed Oct 30 CytoData Hackathon - Day 2
Refine models using second stage of the challenge, then evaluate on held out set.
Winners will be announced based on the held out set.
