Organizers: Oliver Biehlmaier, Camilo Guzman, Nadia Halidi and Caterina Strambio-De-Castillia

Chair: Oliver Biehlmaier, Biozentrum, University of Basel

Section 1 – FAIR image data and metadata standards 15:00 – 15:40 

  1. How can we agree on standards for metadata such that the data can be organised, found, reproduced, and re-used?
  2. How do we ensure the adoption of such standards?
