Research and News
CLS’s Annual Users’ Meeting (AUM) will take place on Saturday, May 23, 2020. The AUM will include a full agenda of scientific presentations, facility updates, and a poster session wine and cheese with prizes. From May 20-22 (few days leading to AUM) BMIT will host a workshop on the fundamentals of tomographic reconstruction, 3D visualization, and quantitative data analysis. Advanced topics such as suppression of reconstruction artifacts, batch processing, and use of machine learning for segmentation will be also discussed. Affiliates from Dragonfly will be present for present capabilities of the software. * If you plan on attending the workshop, please kindly express your interest by sending an email to Arash.Panahifar@lightsource.ca * Stay tuned for more details about full program and registration link!
Local Events: CT Data Reconstruction Workshop
BMIT will host a Workshop-Tutorial on Synchrotron-based Computed Tomography (sCT) Data Processing on October 29-30, 2018. After a general introduction to sCT data collection procedures and data structure, participants will get hands-on experience in data reconstruction using the open-source framework, ufo-kit. The scope of exercises includes most frequently encountered reconstruction steps which will ultimately be put together in a shell or python script to enable batch-processing of the data. Theoretical and practical sessions are designed to introduce both synchrotron- and laboratory-based CT users to command-based reconstruction software and to show how to efficiently process large quantities of data. Dr. Tomas Farago (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) who is one of principal co-developers of the ufo-kit software will be joining us as an invited speaker.
Local Events: FRAME Training School
FRAME Training School FRAME runs regular training schools in experimental design and statistics. Previous courses have been highly successful. FRAME has already held schools in association with universities throughout the UK, Europe and Scandinavia. The next School will be held in conjunction with the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Nottingham in Canada from 31 May – 2 June, 2017. It will precede the Canadian Council for Animal Care’s (CCAC) national workshop. http://www.frame.org.uk/training-schools/
Local Events: CCAC-2017
CCAC National Workshop 2017 The CCAC is delighted to announce that the next National Workshop will take place in Saskatoon on Saturday, June 3, 2017. This one-day workshop is designed to provide participants with practical tools and information as well as the opportunity to network with peers and create new connections.

Local Events: Café Scientifique-Saskatoon
"Storifying Science: Jounalists need great stories. Scientists have great stories to tell. Easy, right? Well, sometimes..." This month Café Scientifique-Saskatoon (co-organized by Dr. Julia Boughner and Michael Robin) presents a panel discussion with science journalists Andrea Hill (Star Phoenix), Bob Simpson (CTV) and scientist/executive director Toddi Steelman (School of Environment & Sustainability, USask). Join us for an evening of discussion with journalists and researchers as we explore what it takes to bridge the gap between complex science for professional scientists and exciting, engaging science stories for you and me. We also hope that this event will help connect local researchers and journalists to facilitate sharing exciting new science with the world. Date and Time: April 19, 2016 (Tuesday), 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm Location: Winston's Pub, downstairs.
