This course might be of your interest: Introduction to 3D Imaging Technologies:
Photogrammetry, Laser, CT-scan and (µ)CT-scan for Life Sciences – 2nd edition.
Dates: June 26th-July 2nd, 2017, Barcelona (Spain).

This course is addressed to life sciences researchers and technicians who
routinely work with complex biological structures (specimens) and need to
digitise their samples for different reasons, such as digital preservation,
quantitative or biomechanics analyses, etc.
The goal of this course is to explain how you can work with a range of
technologies with the aim of obtaining a 3D virtual models from different
sources, such as laser imaging, photogrammetry and (micro) computed tomography
(CT). By the end of the course participants should be able to obtain high
quality digitalizations of samples with the most commonly used techniques and
also be able to edit and manipulate the digital models that are produced.
Attendees will also learn to stain with Lugol’s iodine, a specific technique for
specimen preparation for micro CT scanning which maximizes soft-tissue
differentiation in CT imaging datasets. DiceCT Online: https://dicect.com/.
This course is organized by Transmitting Science, the Institut Català de
Paleontologia and the Centre de Restauració i Interpretació Paleontologica.
