In 2017, the 4th Swiss Image-Based Screening Conference (SIBS 2017) was hosted by ETH Zurich (ETHZ), led by the ETHZ microscopy platform, ScopeM. Around 130 scientists from Europe and North America attended the conference. The event was financially supported by 20 sponsors, 15 of which presented the latest instruments in the sphere of screening and imaging at their stands.
Zurich proved to be an ideal venue for the event. The conference was held at the ETH Zurich Hönggerberg campus, while the social event took place in the city center. In the “Dozentenfoyer” faculty restaurant at the ETH, overlooking the rooftops of Zurich, guests enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake, city and mountains, as well as a spectacular sunset and pleasantly mild temperatures.
The participants were very impressed with Zurich. They particularly valued the excellent transportation links, the short walking distances to the hotels, and the good infrastructure.
The organizers of SIBS 2017 would like to thank Zürich Tourism for the attractive giveaways.
