BIOF 091 | Image Processing and Computer Vision with MATLAB

September 22, 2020 to September 24, 2020



Programs are open to general public. Registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline for this workshop is September 14, 2020. If you are unable to register before the deadline, please email or call 301-496-7977 for space availability.

NIH Fellows or NIH community members being sponsored by their lab and awaiting payment authorization can tentatively hold a seat using the “Reserve A Seat” option. FAES must receive payment within 7 business days after reserving a seat or 3 business days before the start of the workshop, which ever comes first. If payment is not received in this time frame, your reservation will be canceled.

MATLAB is a high-level language that enables you to quickly perform computation and visualization through easy-to-use programming constructs. 

This is a three-day course. On the first and second days, the course provides hands-on experience with performing image analysis. Examples and exercises demonstrate the use of appropriate MATLAB® and Image Processing Toolbox™ functionality throughout the analysis process. On the third day, the course provides hands-on experience with performing computer vision tasks. Examples and exercises demonstrate the use of appropriate MATLAB® and Computer Vision System Toolbox™ functionality.

Computer (PC or Mac) and an internet access are required; Simultaneous access to two screens is highly recommended for best learning experience. Examples include two laptops, one computer with two screens, one laptop and one tablet, etc. A headset is also recommended.

Topics include

Image Processing (2-day)

  • Importing and exporting images
  • Removing noise
  • Aligning images
  • Detecting, extracting, and matching image features
  • Detecting edges, lines, and circles in an image
  • Segmenting objects based on their color and texture
  • Modifying objects' shape using morphological operations
  • Measuring shape properties
  • Performing batch analysis over sets of images

Computer Vision (1-day)

  • Importing, displaying, and annotating videos
  • Detecting objects in videos
  • Estimating motion of objects
  • Tracking a single object or multiple objects
  • Removing lens distortion and measuring planar objects

Class size is limited to 25 students.

MATLAB Fundamentals or equivalent experience using MATLAB*. Basic knowledge of image processing and computer vision concepts.
MATLAB Fundamentals agenda
*For registrants who have not taken MATLAB Fundamentals and are unsure about their experience qualifications, email at to request for free MATLAB skills assessment test.

Course Materials
Each attendee receives e-files of the course manual, a unique code to login to a virtual lab, and a link to join the WebEx. A test session to connect to WebEx and a virtual lab will be provided one day before the training from 9-10 am (tentative).

FAES will share your email address as provided during the registration process with MathWorks who will grant you temporary MATLAB access.

Certificates of Completion
Certificates of completion from MathWorks are emailed to all attendees at the end of each course.

Continuing Education Units
Although no grades are given for courses, each participant will receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs) based on the number of contact hours.  One CEU is equal to ten contact hours. Upon completion of the course, each participant will receive a certificate for 2.1 CEUs.

General Training Rate
