Computational Pathology Course : 16th January 2020

The department of pathology will be hosting the first Computational Pathology speciality conference in India.

This course is catered to pathologists, medical practitioners, software and data science engineers. It will give participants a broad overview of the various nuances of digital pathology and introduce them to the exciting world of computational pathology, machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence. Case based examples will give participants an insight into the tremendous potential of computational pathology and interactive sessions with the experts are planned to guide diagnosticians and researchers adopt the newer techniques and improve on their existing algorithms.

A half day coding workshop for algorithm development  is also planned for 16th of January (Between 8.30 am to 2 pm). This will require a separate registration (Registration Fee: INR 500). Please email  Dr Paromita Roy ( for further details of the workshop.
