Workshop: Applications and Solutions for Big Data in Life Science

jointly supported by ACQUIFER (HIVE), Bitplane (Imaris) and SVI (Huygens)



The workshop consists of different parts:

  • Introduction and demonstration of the Big Data storage and analysis solution from undefinedACQUIFER - The HIVE. The HIVE builds the hardware foundation of this workshop. Its modular design integrates high speed processing, visualization, remote access, project management, flexibility, data security, scalability and ease of use in one unit. We will use two of the major image analysis software packages widely used in life science environments for this workshop. The HIVE will be fully incorporated into the user trainings of this workshop.

  • Huygens workshop and user training by undefinedSVI utilizing the HIVE Big Data solution and local workstations.
    (2 days)
    Take advantage of the chance to get a training for the leading deconvolution software and find the real information in a blurred image. We will show the integration and power of the HIVE multi-GPU hardware solution combined with the Huygens Deconvolution software solution. It is also a unique chance to meet members of the SVI development team for personal inquiries.

  • Imaris workshop and user training by undefinedBitplane utilizing the HIVE Big Data solution and local workstations.
    (2 days)
    A unique chance to meet members of the European Bitplane support team to join an intense one-day training on the latest developments and hot topics of Imaris, one of the world’s leading microscopy image analysis software packages. This part will also show the integration and power of the HIVE multi-GPU hardware solution combined with the Imaris software solution for big data analysis issues occurring on regular workstations. 


You can book the different parts as complete package or independently from each other. You will have to make your choice during the registration process. We highly suggest to join the complete workshop to not only get a detailed overview of the HIVE Big Data solution but also introduction and training on two heavily used software packages for image analysis in the life science community.
