International Society for
Stereology & Image Analysis

This is an intensive workshop directed to biologists, medical doctors, psychologists, biotechnologists and, in general, for anyone interested in hands-on training on the fundaments and practical applications of Stereology. The students will learn about how to sample and measure bias-free on 3D struc...

The 13th European Congress for Stereology and Image Analysis finished last week. We would like to thank the local organizing committee for successfully completing a virtual conference and all the speakers for excellent presentations. The ISSIA General Assembly was held during the conference, where the members discussed society's activities and approved new board members and honorary members. The new honorary member is Lucie Kubinova, for all her dedication to society and efforts in establishing the new ISSIA society. The new members of the ISSIA Board are Johan Debayle and Dvoralai Wulfsohn. We want to congratulate the new members that will contribute significantly to the activities of ISSIA!

We have lost one of the greatest founders of modern stereology, Hans Jørgen Gottlieb Gundersen. As a professor at the Stereological Research Laboratory at Aarhus University, he discovered a number of revolutionary methods for accurately determining the number and size of cells and structures, based on spatial sampling principles: disector, fractionator, proportionator, nucleator, rotator, point-sampled intercepts, orthogonal intercepts, vertical sections, isector, and 2D unbiased counting frame. As a true stereologist, Hans Jørgen never counted everything, he estimated the structural quantities in a sample of the whole organ/structure and therefore he also contributed greatly to the estimation of the error variance - coefficient of error - of the estimate. He economized sampling in the famous paper 'Do more less well!'.

The obituary was published in Image Analysis & Stereology in his memory:
