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.

The Winter School will be an online edition. The adjusted program & reduced price will be shared as soon as possible.

Registration deadline: 24 January 2022

Why join this Winter School?
After following this program 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.

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 fulfilled in all aspects! A group of enthusiastic teaching staff from WUR but also from abroad made this all possible for a group of 11 nationalities.
