OMERO (image data management software) hands-on workshop

August 2023


9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Aug. 3, 2023
9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Aug. 4, 2023

If you have worked with image data for long, you are probably aware that there are dozens of specialty file formats, many of which cannot be easily opened in commercial software. In addition, microscopy data has become more complex with multiple focal planes, time points, locations, channels, and very large file sizes.
The NSF has had data management requirements for their grants for several years. Earlier this year, the NIH added a data management and sharing requirement to all new NIH grants. OMERO is open-source software that UArizona has recently made available which can help campus research labs with image data management. To assist interested users in getting started with OMERO, we have scheduled a two-day, hands-on workshop for OMERO on August 3-4, 2023.

We are bringing in the training team from the Open Microscopy group.

Registration is required.

This is a FREE workshop.

Lunch will be provided.

The meeting room number in HSIB will be provided after registration.


  • Participants are expected to bring their own laptop capable of getting on UA WiFi. This would be the ideal, but it might work if two people from the same group shared a laptop.
  • Laptops will most likely need to have some additional software installed.  Further instructions will be sent to registered participants to allow them time to work with their IT teams to get the software installed before the workshop.
