The issues evinced during the brainstorming sessions at the 3rd German BioImaging meeting in Fulda July 2012 were organized in tasks and these were assigned to workgroups. Each workgroup has a speaker (in italics letters) who refers to the GerBI office in Konstanz. If you want to contribute to one of the workgroups, please contact the corresponding speaker.
