Above and beyond: SFB Member Workshop.

The first SFB Member Workshop took place in Altenmarkt im Pongau, September 12-14.  Members and external associated researchers had the opportunity to talk about first findings, current problems and their ideas for future investigations.  Beyond that the time was used for interesting discussions and the team building was elevated above the ground in a high rope course. As a guest Günter Auzinger, the European Science Slam winner 2018, performed his entertaining and informative act.

Reconstruction Methods for Inverse Problems (19w5092)

at Banff, Alberta from Sunday, June 23 to Friday June 28, 2019


  • Elena Beretta (NYU Abu Dhabi & Politecnico di Milano)
  • Uri Ascher (University of British Columbia)
  • Otmar Scherzer (University of Vienna)
  • Luminita Vese (University of California, Los Angeles)


Inverse problems require to determine the cause from a set of indirect observations. Such problems appear in medical imaging, non destructive testing of materials, computerized tomography, source reconstructions in acoustics, computer vision and geophysics, to mention but a few. The 21st century is the golden age of computer imaging: Measurement devices have become enormously powerful and huge amounts of data are recorded at every eye glimpse. Moreover, computer technology has developed to such a high degree of efficiency that the evaluation of such an enormous amount of data has become possible *if* adequate mathematical and computational tools are used.

Recently, the community has been exposed to fundamentally new mathematical models (such as learning), which stimulated exciting theoretical developments and new computational algorithms for solving complicated large scale inverse problems. This workshop will survey modern and identify new mathematical and computational developments for tackling such problems.

The first SFB meeting was a success!

In the Obergurgl University Center, the initial SFB “Tomography across the scales” meeting took place, on March, 18-20.  It was attended by the Principal investigators, members, external associated researchers and candidates. The participants had the opportunity, for the first time, to meet all members and interact with people from different disciplines. The talks were interesting covering all “scales”, from mathematics and physics to medical- and bio-sciences.

Everyone is looking forward to the next meeting at the end of the year!


Workshop “Inverse Problems in the Alps II”

Then, on March, 21-23, followed the more mathematical oriented workshop “Inverse Problems in the Alps II” co-organized by the SFB, the RICAM and the Doctoral Program “Computational Mathematics”. More than 30 participants enjoyed the talks in this wonderful location. This workshop celebrated also the 60th birthday (\(\varepsilon\) far) of Elena Beretta,  Politecnico di Milano, Italy!


Workshop “Inverse Problems in the ALPS II”

The Obergurgl University Center

The SFB “Tomography across the Scales”, the Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics, and the Doctoral Program “Computational Mathematics” organize an international workshop at the Obergurgl University Center, Austria, from March, 21st to March, 23rd, 2018.

This workshop brings together experts on Inverse Problems, Regularization Theory, Tomography and Imaging.

There are only few places available on short notice. In case you are interested please contact one of the organizers: Prof. Otmar Scherzer and Prof. Ronny Ramlau.
