We are pleased to announce the first International Conference on Image Analysis in Three-dimensional Cryo-EM, to be held at Granlibakken Conference Center, Lake Tahoe, California,  March 12 to March 15, 2014  (http://blake.bcm.edu/tahoe2014) . 

Dorit Hanein, Chair & Steven Ludtke, Co-Chair

ORGANIZING COMMITTEE : Wah Chiu, Ed Egelman, Ben Hankamer, Masahide Kikkawa, David Mastronade, Pawel Penczek, Henning Stahlberg, Fei Sun, Niels Volkmann

The goal of the Symposium is to discuss state of the art image analysis approaches to tackle challenging biological problems and to identify current limitations and remaining problems in the field as currently practiced. The goal will be for developers in this area, both established as well as students/postdocs to discuss the detailed algorithms and methodologies in this field in greater technical detail than is possible at more general meetings like the GRC. The central premise is that gaining a comprehensive and quantitative understanding of highly sophisticated machines, complexes, and organelles of the cell requires the active, timely and coordinated development of complementary image analysis and data mining algorithm and approaches. We have recruited an outstanding panel of speakers; including an outstanding keynote speaker and the leading algorithm developers in the field ( http://ncmi.bcm.edu/ncmi/events/workshops/workshops_139/workshop_schedule_html ).


* Map Validation

* Single Particle Approaches to Helical Symmetry and 2-D Crystals

* Direct Detector Movie Processing

* Tomogram Segmentation, Annotation and Filtration

* Factors Limiting Resolution in Single Particle Analysis/Tomography

* Heterogeneous Data in 2-D and 3-D

All session will focus on interactive discussions with plenty of time for questions. We will also have a poster session, and selected posters will be invited to give short-format talks. 

The early registration deadline for this workshop is Jan 2014, so please register soon (http://blake.bcm.edu/tahoe2014).
