Macro Programming in ImageJ, Oct 18th

ImageJ is an open source image processing software designed for scientific image analysis. Its most often used distribution is called Fiji. This software has a lot of built-in functions and plugins. ImageJ has its own programming language based on Java. As scientists, we often want to perform image analysis on large datasets (detecting hundreds of particles on hundreds of images). If you don’t want to click the dots for all eternity, writing a macro is the perfect solution.

During this workshop you will learn how to automate some of your analyses by writing simple macros in ImageJ. Prerequisites for this workshop are basic skills in any programming language as well as basic knowledge of what ImageJ can do.

Workshop will take place October 18th, 10AM – 3 PM. Please find the application form here. We wait for applications until Oct 10 th. The cost of the workshop is 60 PLN.

Please install Fiji before workshop (

Kacper Łukasiewicz recently finished his PhD in the laboratory of Molecular Basis of Behavior, Nencki Institute. During his PhD he worked on alcohol-induced memory impairment and analyzed hundreds of images from immunostainings (and saved hundreds of hours using ImageJ macros for this).
