“Trends in Microscopy” (TiM), the biennial conference of GerBI-GMB, changes format! In 2020, TiM, alias GerBI-GMB Spring School, will be an intense microscopy training camp offering hands-on workshops and scientific talks from distinguished guest speakers. The program will also cover fundamentals of optics and practical sessions on image analysis.
Round table discussions and presentations by renowned researchers who were funded by the latest large equipment initiative for microscopy of the German Research Foundation (DFG) will round off the event.
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. TiM2020 addresses in particular Ph.D. students and Postdocs.
