2017 Americas User Group Meeting
Date: March 21-23, 2017
Location: The Rockefeller University, Weiss Building (Tuesday and Thursday in room 301, Wednesday in room 305)
*FREE priority access to Imaris users under maintenance. We anticipate a long wait list so please register for the event as soon as possible.
We are pleased to be holding our next Americas User Group Meeting (UGM) at The Rockefeller University located in the heart of Manhattan. The Rockefeller University is home to many top researchers including multiple Nobel laureates and members of the National Academy of Sciences. We thank Dr. Alison North, Senior Director of the Bio-Imaging Resource Center and Research Associate Professor, for generously hosting this year’s UGM. This is our most advanced training by our exceptional application scientists and our senior developer from our Zurich R & D office to address technical questions of all levels.
This year’s UGM is focused on in-depth training on the following topics.
- Our latest patent-pending Torch tool in FilamentTracer for tracing dense fibrous objects such as neuronal dendrites
- Our Lineage module for cell division analysis with the reference frame to correct for the object movement
- Most optimal way to use the Arena view for Batch processing
- Displaying and interpretation of data in Vantage plots
- Cell modules for inter/intra cellular analysis
- Advanced use of XTensions to expand capabilities of Imaris
- Automated 3D counting/volume/surface area estimation and 4D tracking of particles
- Tips and tricks for working with large files
In addition, attendees will learn about cutting edge applications of Imaris by other leading scientists, and have one-on-one sessions with our application scientists to analyze their own data. Scientists of all disciplines who use 3D/4D microscopic images in their research are welcome.
Attendees will get a chance to develop analysis protocols, share their use of Imaris with other advanced users of the Imaris community and establish new collaborations.The UGM will have a combination of lectures and hands-on sessions on dedicated computers.Attendees are welcome to bring their own laptops that meet the minimum specs for running Imaris and we will provide free temporary licenses.
We fully anticipate that registration for this meeting will fill up very quickly, resulting in a long wait list. Advanced application is required prior to the deadline of
March 1st, 2017 and early application is highly recommended. Application does not guarantee registration and priority is given to Imaris license holders who have currently valid maintenance.We will let you know if your application was accepted within 2 business days.
To apply, please fill out the form below (please note that due to the high demand, application does not guarantee a spot– please wait for the confirmation of registration from Bitplane before making travel arrangements).Although you can select the day you choose to attend, we recommend that you attend all three days unless you are a highly advanced user as this course will cover many tips and tricks that many previous attendees have found valuable.
As we are expecting a wait list, please be sure to apply only if you plan to attend. Once your application is accepted, you will have access to all the lectures, hands on sessions, snacks during breaks, printed course materials and access to computers with fully-loaded Imaris.
Participants must arrange their own accommodation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding registration.
