Geomathematics Meets Medical Imaging

The occurring problems and challenges in geomathematics and in medical imaging as well as the methodologies for solving them have a lot of common aspects. It is not only the almost spherical shape of the objects under investigation which interconnects these fields of research. Also inverse problems play a central role in both areas with all its consequences like the need for regularization methods and the analysis of big data sets with spatial and temporal multiscale features.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers working in geomathematics or medical imaging. It is expected to inspire new research projects and to encourage new collaborations. It addresses geoscientists and applied scientists from medical imaging with interests in research on mathematical methodologies. In the same manner, mathematicians working in any of these applied areas are invited to participate in the workshop.

The workshop will consist of contributed talks and of invited keynote talks by selected experts from the involved areas of research. We encourage, in particular, young researchers to participate and to submit an abstract.

The workshop will take place at the “Hotel Speyer am Technik Museum” (hotel at the technology museum in Speyer, Germany). It will start at Tuesday, 5 September 2017 (in the afternoon) and it will end at 8 September 2017 (noon). Due to limited room capacities it is therefore recommended to register as early as possible.
