First I2PC-FEI “hands on” course on image processing. Madrid, 17 – 20 October, 2016. The Instruct Image Processing Center at the CNB-CSIC and FEI Corporation joint course aims to provide an in-depth presentation of current image processing methods in cryo-Electron Microscopy. The course will be of a very practical nature. Course web page
First iNEXT All Hands Meeting. Madrid, 19 – 21 October, 2016. AHM 2016 is the first annual meeting of iNEXT. It aims at gathering not only iNEXT Partners, but also iNEXT Users (or intended users) contacted directly by the different Facilities in the project. iNEXT Partners, together with the Scientific Advisory Board and the Industry

Instruct has 16 Instruct Centres in Europe and Israel offering access to a full range of advanced technologies and expert support. Access to the infrastructure at Instruct Centres is provided for all Instruct members and there are no charges (consumable costs, accommodation and travel are supported by Instruct funds, up to a maximum of €1100
“Showcasing Integrative Structural Biology”. Florence (Italy), 20-22 May 2015 The second Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting will showcase integrative structural biology and its impact on biological research. Register now! Student fellowships available (deadline Friday 13th March 2015).
Spain has been in close contact with Instruct since the early stages of the preparatory phase of this Infrastructure. Membership of Instruct with full rights came only with the signing of the International Consortium Agreement at the First Instruct Biennial Structural Biology Meeting in Heidelberg in May 2013. In the relative short period since the
A maximum of 20,000€ per project will be awarded to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries (BE, CZ, DE, ES, FR, IL, IT, NL, PT, SE, UK). Projects should propose basic or applied research which is preliminary in nature. The intent of this support is to help
In the frame of three European projects, the Instruct ESFRI project on Structural Biology, the Biostruct-X project and the COST Action MP1207, the Instruct Image Processing Center at CNB-CSIC is planning training schools on 3D Reconstruction in Electron Microscopy and Soft X-ray Microscopy for January 2014. The course will focus on image processing topics, introducing
An intensive meeting devoted to discuss the image processing challenges raised by recent advances in Soft X-ray tomography of cellular materials at cryogenic temperatures. The topics to be discussed include Image Formation, Depth of Field and Zone Plates, Contrast Enhancement, information Recovery and Tomographic Algorithms.
