Open Science at emc2020

At emc2020 we promote Open Science: encouraging you to showcase and share your Open Science Methodology, Source, Data and Educational Resources, such as image data sets, acquisition methods, and image analysis tools that you would like to share with the community.

We have offered a limited number of stands next to the learning zone, for scientists to showcase their new developed tools. 

Please note that applications for Open Science are now CLOSED.


We can confirm the following Open Science will be on show at the conference:

  • OPenT
    Though optical tomography is not novel, there are very limited implementations worldwide. OPenT was the first fully open source.
  • MyScope
    MyScope is a free online microscopy training tool developed by Microscopy Australia experts. It is part of a blended learning approach to enable early-stage microscopists to learn the relevant theory, and practice via realistic instrument simulators, before they start hands-on training on a real microscope. This improves efficiency in busy microscopy centres and lets learners around the world learn at their own pace.
  • Pyxem
    Pyxem is an open-source python package for the analysis of electron diffraction data recorded in multiple dimensions, such as 4D scanning electron diffractions and 3D rotation electron diffraction.
  • OpenFlexure Microscope
    The OpenFlexure Microscope is a customisable, open-source optical microscope, using either very cheap webcam optics or lab quality, RMS threaded microscope objectives.
  • LEMOLish/LEGOLish
    An affordable lightsheet device and imaging framework aimed to enable anyone to equip their lab with a easy-to-mount benchtop solution, and to enter the game of 3D imaging of very large scale cleared samples, for a starting cost standing below immunostaining costs, and 100- to 200- fold below commercial or highly customized symbols.
  • 3D Script
    Invented to provide an intuitive way to compose 3D/4D animations of microscope data reproducibly. 3D Script describes animations as text, written in natural English sentences.
