Dealing with Data across the Disciplines
The third meeting in this popular series will take place at Manchester Central on Monday 3 July 2017 before the mmc2017 conference begins, and aims to bring together a wide variety of imaging scientists to share best practice and agree joint initiatives.
The meeting will consist of two parts:
A morning session starting at 11am will include updates of coordination activities within and across imaging communities, and discussion of future plans and initiatives. The aim of this session is to have broad discussions across the disciplines relating to the coordination of access, training, impact capture, staff career structures and infrastructure expenditure.
Following lunch, a technical presentation starting at 2pm will consist of a series of presentations relating to the challenges of imaging and spectroscopy data. We are seeing increased use of 3D techniques such as tomography, optical sectioning, slice and view, ptychography, hyperspectral imaging etc. These are producing very large data sets, with associated challenges of storage and processing. Furthermore, funding agencies are increasingly requiring data to be made available to other researchers, and mechanisms to enable such interchange, such as common file formats, are more advanced in some disciplines than others. The aim of this session is to inform about advances in techniques that lead to big data, and to share best practice.
