In 2021 and 2022, we organized a Virtual Huygens Workshop, entitled 'Get the best out of your microscopy image'. The workshops focused on how to get the best possible results from the microscope with the Huygens Software. Hundreds of researchers attended and many of them shared their positive feedback without any unsatisfied responses. Recordings of these Workshops are available as well as several protocols, to get more familiar with the Huygens Software, from the workshop are available on our website.

Remote workshop for new customers

Remote workshops are offered to introduce deconvolution and the Huygens software to our customers and their users. This service is part of the Maintenance and Upgrade (M&U) contract. New licenses include a full year of M&U and additional years can be purchased.

On-site workshops

Scientific Volume Imaging on-site workshops and courses are provided at conferences and research institutes all over the world. Several courses are given annually. If you are interested in a course at your Institute or in its vicinity, you can contact us.

Huygens imaging training at our Office

For many years, we offered Huygens imaging trainings at our SVI headquarters in Hilversum, The Netherlands. During the COVID pandemic, we shifted to virtual meetings. Until further notice, we'll continue with organizing these virtual workshops.

Quotes from the attendants:

Thanks to all the Huygens team for a fantastic workshop. I learned a lot. Well done to all the presenters. Great to know a little more about all the features of the software packages you offer and see a live demo.

Thanks to all the Huygens team for a fantastic workshop. You guys are doing an amazing job at SVI. Even after so many years of attending these workshops, I learn something new everytime! Keep doing the great work!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2023

I take this opportunity of thanking you and all your collaborators. I've learned a lot from this workshop and I'll recommend the next edition to my Ph.D colleagues.

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2023

Thank you very much for the Huygens course last week!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2023

Given the limited time and the wide range of treated topics, the workshop was very well planned and conducted. It was an interesting insight into many acquisition, restoration and analysis matters. Nicely balanced. And the team seams to be very professional. Well done and thank you!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2022

Thank you for this interesting workshop about your fancy software. Good job!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2022

This was a very detailed workshop which gave an impressive insight into the capabilities of the software.

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2022

Thanks! Fantastic workshop!!!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. July, 2021

the workshop was awesome. Many thanks to the whole SVI team for this wonderful event.

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. July, 2021

Very good workshop - I learned a lot. Congrats to this wonderful software - the express deconvolution and colocalization wizard is superb!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2021

It was a great workshop. Very well prepared, professional and very useful for beginners as well as experienced users. Most valuable for me was the possibility to ask questions and also follow the discussions and brainstorming of the whole image processing community.

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2021

Thank you for the wonderful workshop!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2021

Huygens allows me to do my work - period. I work at a tough biological interface: bacterial interactions in microcolonies on the surface of host tissues (gut, the endovascular system, etc). And the bug I study most is *tiny* - you can fit more than a dozen of them inside an E. coli cell. Even using super-resolution techniques, it can be hard to demonstrate these interactions clearly. Using Huygens is like putting on my glasses in the morning - what was blurry and indistinct become clear and focused. Wins my personal "most valuable player" award every year!

Virtual Huygens Imaging Workshop. April, 2021

Thank you very much SVI for the excellent training on the Huygens package, it is going to prove very useful in improving how we capture images and process them going forward. Highly recommended!

Huygens imaging training. May, 2019

It was a very great experience and I have learnt a lot: thank you very much for all your efforts and fantastic trainings. A great learning experience in my scientific career.

Huygens imaging training. May, 2019

The course was extremely informative, fun and hands-on. The SVI staff is incredibly skilled and they were very involved in the course, creating a comfortable environment to ask questions and discuss data."

Huygens imaging training. May, 2019

Thanks for a great course! I really enjoyed it and now feel better prepared to answer questions from my users at the facility.

Huygens imaging training. May, 2019

I have learnt a lot in this course, and most important you guys are very helpful! We costumers appreciate that! I would recommend this course to all scientific comunity.

Huygens imaging training. September, 2018

I had expected a lot, but what I got was well beyond my expectations. After all this years working with a microscope, this course really deepened my knowledge. Thank you!

Huygens imaging training. September, 2017

I wished I had followed this course much earlier. I have meanwhiles recommended it to several people.

Huygens imaging training. September, 2017

This was an excellent course and very hands on. It has the best integration of lecture/apply it yourself of any imaging course I have attended or been part of. The diversity of speakers was refreshing and provided a nice level of enthusiasm as many individuals presented lectures on things they had a role developing.

Huygens imaging training. October, 2016

The SVI Huygens training course is one of the best image processing and analysis courses that I have attended. Some of the reasons for this is the friendly and including atmosphere provided by a highly skilled and service-minded staff. The course had an excellent mix between theoretical and practical sessions, where all questions brought up during the course received full attention and was addressed in a very good manner. I also liked that there was several presenters, so that for each topic an SVI expert presented hers/his special area of interest/research, making the talks compelling and comprehensive.

Huygens imaging training. October, 2015

thank you also for the training, we were impressed and satisfied - it was our pleasure to take part the course in your headquarter.
