Welcome !

Deadline for early registration is now passed (20 May 2018). You may still register till 8 June.

Deadline for abstract submission is now closed. 20 abstracts have been accepted (click here to get the list)!

This workshop addresses the ongoing efforts towards animal population imaging, a domain still in infancy.

Sharing requirements will grow in the next future for similar motivations to those for human research, i.e. optimize costs and subject participation, improvement of quality of science (use of sufficiently large animal cohorts for ensuring statistical result validity, especially for drug development process) and enhancement of research discovery.

The APPNING workshop is focused on conceptual and methodological aspects and existing solutions to support the sharing of animal imaging data and processing tools: data structures, application ontologies, new paradigms for handing data, atlas construction, interoperability of repositories, semantic queries, image processing composition, local or grid-access execution, software and hardware architectures, and pros and cons of existing working solutions.

This workshop will help to promote the federation of multiple sources of information, processing tools and diffusion of knowledge distributed in various centers for preclinical studies.

In addition to the invited lectures, 20 abstracts will be highlighted during the teasing session and available for discussion during the poster session.

Looking forward to a great hAPPeNING in Paris !
