ilastik workshop

20th of Novembre 2015 at EPFL

What is ilastik?

“ilastik is a simple, user-friendly tool for interactive image classification, segmentation and analysis. It is built as a modular software framework, which currently has workflows for automated (supervised) pixel- and object-level classification, automated and semi-automated object tracking, semi-automated segmentation and object counting without detection. Most analysis operations are performed lazily, which enables targeted interactive processing of data subvolumes, followed by complete volume analysis in offline batch mode. Using it requires no experience in image processing.”

Workshop outline

The workshop will begin with an introduction and a walk through of the different workflows that ilastik offers, and everyone is welcome to attend.
For the following “show and tell” as well as the “hands-on” sessions, we kindly ask you to register for one of the 20 available seats. This group size should allow all participants to receive the required amount of support.

Also, we invite the participants to bring their own data during the “hands-on” session,  so they can explore solving their own problem using ilastik, while being supported by the ilastik team.

The workshop will be given by Fred Hamprecht, Anna Kreshuk, Janez Ales, and Carsten Haubold.
