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

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

General information

“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).

Invited Speakers


Call for Workshops closed

For applying to provide a workshop at TiM2022, please fill in the Workshop Application Form. German BioImaging – Society for microscopy and image analysis welcomes proposals for scientific and educational workshops for TiM2022. Workshops are held by a team of two persons and must give participants a hands-on experience. Workshop providers can be both from academia and industry and can apply also as mixed teams. They are kindly requested to attend the whole duration of the school and will pay a reduced attendance fee. Workshops must have a strong training aspect and must address PhD students and Post-Docs. They are not intended for commercial purposes and should highlight special imaging techniques or experiments that, if possible, can be demonstrated on similar microscopes of different brands. Workshops on fundamentals of optics and image analysis are also highly welcome. Workshops can last between 2-4 hours and should be held 2-3 times during the event. Practical workshops are attended by 6-8 students, image analysis and software workshops could host up to 20 students. Workshop providers must bring suitable samples. Cell culture and sample preparation facilities are available (S1 safety levels; no mice, worms, and flies; fish only as max 5 days old embryos; human/animal/plant cells, bacteria, yeast, algae, fungi). Workshop providers can also bring their own microscopes or other imaging equipment that can potentially be utilized by other workshops. Alternatively, they can rely on the equipment available on-site that will be provided by the companies supporting the event and will be selected according to the workshop program. Workshop providers can also directly contact companies for the provision of suitable equipment. A list of contact persons at the company side responsible for TiM2022 equipment is available from the GerBI TiM2022 team (tim2022@gerbi-gmb.de). The venue can harbour (almost) all types of advanced light microscopes. For applying to provide a workshop at TiM2022, please fill in the Workshop Application Form. Application deadline is 31.07.2021. Workshop applications will be evaluated by the TiM2022 program advisory board. Successful applicants will be notified by September 2021. In case of questions, don’t hesitate to write to tim2022@gerbi-gmb.de.
