Automated Image Management and Metadata Annotation (AIMM) User Group

Join us on Jun 7

The AIMM User Group brings together researchers to share experiences to enable rapid dissemination and uptake of best practices and open-source tools for the automated management and metadata annotation of image data and therefore facilitate the quality, reproducibility and re-use of results of microscopy experiments.

Meetings are the first Friday of the month, every other month.

Next meeting: 2024.04.05 @ 11 am ET with a presentation from Jens Wendt and Thomas Zobel, University of Muenster on “User friendly Image metadata annotation tool/workflow for OMERO

Flyer for the AIMM user group that meets the first Friday of the month, every other month. Graphics show scientists working on Experimental and Sample Metadata, Microscopy Metadata, and Analysis & Visualization Metadata.

This group is open to anyone interested, including all career stages and levels of experience and expertise with data management and metadata annotation.

The emphasis of the meeting will be on participants to share both challenges and solutions towards making data management and quality control a routine practice in the field of light microscopy.

We particularly wish to encourage imaging facility users and other imaging scientist to share day-to-day challenges they face during their routine work to manage image data to help inform developers building tools to maximize:

  • Usability
  • Customization
  • Added value
  • Automation

All products of this user-group will be made available to the community!
