International Workshop on Image Analysis Methods for the Plant Sciences 2018


Interest in automatic image analysis has increased significantly within plant science in recent years and there is clear evidence of an emerging bioimage analysis community working within the wider plant sciences to develop the required techniques. This community is, however, distributed across widely separated and disparate plant science and computer science research groups. 

The International Workshop on Image Analysis Methods for the Plant Sciences seeks to bring together scientists actively engaged in the development of image analysis techniques and tools addressing problems arising within the plant sciences. The workshop aims to review the image analysis methods and approaches currently being used and developed, identify generic image analysis challenges arising across the plant sciences and techniques and approaches likely to lead to their solution, and promote collaboration within the developing plant image analysis community. 

Dr Ji Zhou (Earlham Institute/JIC) will be giving a keynote speech.



After five successful editions in Nottingham, Aberystwyth, Louvain la Neuve, and Angers,  IAMPS 2018 takes place once again in Nottingham, UK. Nottingham is host to a number of phenotyping installations (such as the Hounsfield Facility), as well as some ten plant image analysis researchers based in the Computer Vision Laboratory.

IAMPS2018 will be held at:

The Exchange, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, UK. NG8 1BB.



We welcome submissions in all areas of plant image analysis method development, including work in progress. This year we will have a dedicated session on Deep Learning methods in plant image analysis.

The organisers will select oral and poster contributions from the abstracts we receive. Authors will be notified before Christmas.

When submitting your abstract please use the template provided. The abstract should be written in Times New Roman, 11 pt. The whole document should not exceed one A4 page. Please include at least one figure to illustrate the content of the study and references to clarify the context of the proposed study.

Please submit your PDF to the CMT conference system:
