Welcome to the GW4 Imaging Network group site.

This website is a directory and forum where GW4-area bioscientists, mathematicians, systems biologists, physicists, geographers, medics, engineers, psychologists, computing scientists and anyone else with an interest in image acquisition and analysis can find collaborators or colleagues with similar imaging interests, problems and solutions.


In addition to the website, we run a series of workshops throughout the year, which are of interest to members of the network. Details of all GW4 activities and news and activities across the South West, UK and internationally will appear here as they become available.
