Whole slide imaging (WSI) is turning biomarker analysis of tissues into a quantitative discipline. This is not only launching the era of digital pathology but has also fundamental consequences for basic biomedical research, and for clinical and epidemiological studies. Scientific projects are enriched by a new source of spatial information, which cannot be obtained by molecular analyses. To this end, image processing algorithms perform automatic tissue segmentations and objectively capture morphological patterns which up till now lay in the subjective eye of the beholder. Changing biomarker assessment also develops oncology further, which is relying increasingly on these partial and quantitative expression patterns for therapeutic decisions. After two successful past conferences in Heidelberg, the 3rd conference on Whole-Slide-Imaging serves again as a unique forum welcoming experts working at the crossroad of these disciplines to discuss recent developments. Besides a poster exhibition, a number of free talks are available and await your submissions.



  • Pathology becoming digital
  • Spatial patterns in biomarker development
  • Novel datasets for systems biolology
  • Improving clinical studies
  • Novel image analysis algorithms
  • Transforming clinical routing diagnostics
  • The industry perspective: chances and challenges
