Whole Slide Imaging Analytics Hands-on Workshop

| December 21, 2016

An interactive workshop will be hosted as part of this year’s Digital Pathology conference, February 20-22, 2017 at the Moscone North Convention Center in San Francisco. A survey of web-based tools to analyze digital whole slide imagery will cover both theory as well as practical implementation. Learn valuable tips from experts about the latest tools and approaches.

A Hands-On Workshop

This interactive workshop will make use of web-based tools to provide a general survey to participants of contemporary approaches to common image classification and segmentation tasks, as made possible by the increasing availability of digital whole slide imagery. Equal emphasis will be placed on first-principles theory as well as practical considerations such as: workflow optimization, algorithm optimization and pipeline design. Those attendees bringing a laptop will be able to interactively apply the concepts presented by use of content and tools on a specifically-implemented workshop website.

Key aspects of this workshop will include:

  • Actual hands-on use of web-based image segmentation and analytics tools (utilizing attendees’ laptops)
  • Interactive exercises in image segmentation topics
  • Interactive exercises in image classification topics
  • Interactive exercises in creating streamlined compound image processing pipelines
