Updated rules and guidelines


The official rules and guidelines for the Cellular Imaging Facility have been recently updated. We invite all users of the facility and the lab heads to download and read them. Main modifications relate to the billing process and responsibilities in case of non-payment, to the authorship rights, and to responsibility of CIF regarding scientific validity of the results produced by users.
The updated rules can be found here in French  and in English .


ATLAS file server and data storage


The recent reliability problems encountered with the ATLAS server has highlighted the crucial importance for users of the facility to save their data on their own storage media and to avoid keeping or archiving their images and results there. The CIF does not take responsibility in case of data loss. In any case, according to the CIF rules, the duration of data storage on the ATLAS CIF server is limited to three months, unless otherwise specified.

We have the pleasure to inform all of the CIF Users that the ATLAS server is accessible and working fine again.



- Important remark/reminder for the CIF users -


Remind that the ATLAS server is not a long term file storage server.

Leave your files only for short term on ATLAS.

In any case ensure on your side that you have made your own supplementary files backup.
