Winter-/Summer- School on Image Analysis for Plant Phenotyping

 If you want to experience, learn and get a ‘picture’ of the state of art related to current imaging technologies and analysis tools this is the place to be. My expectations on this were fullfilled in all aspects! A group of enthousiastic teaching staff from WUR but also from abroad made this all possible for a group of 11 nationalities.

Are you looking for a complete overview of image analysis techniques for automatic plant phenotyping? The Winter School will provide a mixture of underlying theory and practical hands-on training. You will have the opportunity to work on real plant image analysis problems to challenge you to directly apply and combine the theory in practice.

This programme normally is a Summer School, due to the corona outbreak the 2020 edition has been postponed to February 2021. Therefore we transformed the name into 'Winter School'. The programme does not change.

Why join this Winter School?

After following this programme you know about the latest insights in imaging techniques applied to plant phenotyping. Furthermore, you will be able to apply it in daily practice in your experiments.

For whom is this Winter School?

This programme is primarily intended for researchers working on automatic phenotyping and technical experts in breeding companies who use, or plan to use, image analysis. If you have doubts whether you belong to the target group or have enough relevant basic knowledge, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Programme and topics

In this programme, a mixture of lectures from experts from Wageningen University & Research and leading international experts in this domain, are combined with hands-on training.

During the Winter School there is ample time to discuss the issues of importance to your company/institutions with the experts. The folllowing subjects will be adressed:

  • Image acquisition
  • Noise filtering
  • Segmentation and image shape features
  • Machine learning
  • Deep learning
  • 3D vision
  • Imaging, data and practicals
