TiM2022: German BioImaging Spring School

General Information

***** TiM2022 is cancelled *****

Due to the unpredictable pandemic situation, we sadly cancelled TiM2022. Instead, we are looking forward to TiM2023!


"Trends in Microscopy" (TiM), the biennial conference of GerBI-GMB, alias GerBI-GMB Spring School, is an intense microscopy training camp offering hands-on workshops and scientific talks from distinguished guest speakers. The program also covers fundamentals of optics and practical sessions on image analysis.

Participants will reside at the conference site, a nicely renovated ancient military base immersed in the unspoiled landscape of the Biosphere Reserve Swabian Alb, for the whole week. TiM2022 addresses in particular Ph.D. students, Postdocs, and Core Facility members.

Please find further information and impressions here, or have a look at twitter (#TiM2020).
