Contributing to Open-Source Software
Organisers: Carolina Wählby
Address: Centre for Image Analysis, Uppsala
Comment: The goal of the workshop was to let the participants become familiar with open-source tools, and learn how to make contributions/modifications to MeVisLab, ImageJ/FIJI and CellProfiler. These initiatives are valuable sources for already implemented algorithms, making them a great starting point for further exploration and development, as well as reproducible comparison of competing methods. By becoming more familiar with these tools, and learning how to make contributions/modifications, the participants have a valuable toolbox that can be shared and used also outside the university.
Guest tutorials were presented by Felix Ritter and Anja Hennemuth (MevisLab, Fraunhofer MEVIS), Lee Kamentsky (CellProfiler, Broad Institute, USA), and Kevin Eliceiri ImageJ2/FIji, LOCI, University of Wisconsin, USA).
