The Microscopy and Image Analysis Platform (MIAP) in Freiburg organizes a workshop on 21-22 October, which will provide all scientists and students with the proper tools and knowledge to avoid common pitfalls, to spot imaging fraud, and to prepare sound images to prevent fraud.
Scientific fraud has become a serious concern in life sciences, as in all segments of science. Microscopic image presentation is a serious and, unfortunately, common source of fraud in life science publications. As image editing is commonplace during data analysis and presentation, even unwanted changes quickly lead to irregular and often illegal figures.
Please find further information on the web page of the workshop.

EMBL-EBI has been collaborating with the wider bioimaging community to address some of these challenges. Pilot projects coordinated by EMBL-EBI, such as EMPIAR, and collaborations such as the Cell- and Tissue- Image Data Resource (IDR), have laid the groundwork for the creation of the BioImage Archive. The project has been made possible through capital support from a recent Strategic Priority Fund award from UK Research and Innovation.

Registration is open to the GerBI-GMB Core Facility Managers Meeting 2019 , 27 - 29 March in Mainz. The Meeting is catered for individuals managing or working in imaging or image analysis core facilities and is co-organized by Sandra Ritz of the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB). This meeting series, formerly known as the German BioImaging Annual Community Meeting (or the "Fulda-Meeting"), was founded in 2010 and has since then taken place annually.

DFG approved funding for 13 optical microscopes at German universities. The call is based, among others, on a proposal submitted by GerBI-GMB Core Facility Managers within a call for major instrumentation initiatives. DFG invited applications for highly developed but not yet widely established optical microscopy technologies as part of a major instrumentation initiative in January 2018. The call, entitled “Innovative, Experimental Optical Microscopes for Research”, attracted considerable interest from universities, with a total of 50 proposals received..
