Join us for our 4th Annual Helmholtz Imaging Conference on 14-15 May 2024 in Heidelberg! This exciting event is open to everyone, but tailored for scientists and researchers from all Helmholtz research fields engaged in imaging research or utilizing imaging techniques. The conference program will comprise captivating keynotes, engaging discussion sessions, scientific presentations, poster exhibitions, and much more.

Explore the agenda:

Take a look at what you can expect:

  • Keynotes by Zeynep Akatan (Helmholtz AI, TUM & Helmholtz Munich), Joost Batenburg (Leiden University), and Jan Taucher (GEOMAR)
    • Zeynep Akata is a Liesel Beckmann Distinguished professor of Computer Science at Technical University of Munich and the director of the Institute for Explainable Machine Learning at Helmholtz Munich.
    • Joost Batenburg is a professor at Computer Science institute of Leiden University (LIACS) and his chair is Imaging and Visualization. He is also affiliated with the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands (CWI) and is program director of the interdisciplinary research program Society, Artificial Intelligence and Life Sciences (SAILS).
    • Guido Grosse is a professor at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven (AWI). He is the head of the Permafrost Research section of the institute. He studies the state of Arctic permafrost in Siberia, Canada, Alaska and Svalbard and is investigating how vulnerable permafrost is to warming, how quickly and where it thaws and what the effects of its thawing are on landscapes, the water cycle and biogeochemical processes such as the carbon cycle.
  • Comprehensive Conference Program featuring presentations in the fields of image analysis, data acquisition, image formation and reconstruction, as well as data handling and visualization
  • Poster session with a dedicated area for Helmholtz Imaging Projects
  • BYOIC – Bring Your Own Imaging Challenge! (more information about this new format below)

BYOIC – Bring Your Own Imaging Challenge!
You can’t always get what you want? – Yes, you can!

What is currently a crucial bottleneck in your community? What can we do to help you make spectacular progress?

We are interested in your everyday problems as well as in questions that you have been putting aside for years. Making others aware of your research problems and bringing together experts from different fields could be the missing spark to solve your problems.

At the conference, you will give a super-short pitch on your topic, followed by 45 minutes of discussion with the community. Let’s see if someone comes up with THE idea for a solution.

Send your question and a short description so that we can plan to:, subject: BYOIC, and let the community work on your problems.
