From 10th to 21st of October, the first two workshop-weeks of the RICAM Special Semester “Tomography across the Scales” took place at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics in Linz. There, Fabian Hinterer, Simon Hubmer, Michael Quellmalz, Ekaterina Sherina and Leopold Veselka, all members of the mathematical subprojects within the SFB project, were invited to present their latest scientific advances to an audience of experts in the various fields of Inverse Problems. Furthermore, the members got the chance to exchange ideas with other researchers and to benefit from external input. We express our gratitude to the organizers for the invitation and the hospitality during these perfectly organized workshops!
The Tenth International Conference “Inverse Problems: Modeling and Simulation” (IPMS2021) has now been postponed to May 22 –28, 2022. The conference takes place in Malta.
We are happy to announce that we are organizing a mini-symposium entitled “Mathematical Methods in Tomography Across the Scales” related to our SFB. The speakers are members and associated members of the SFB.
at Banff, Alberta from Sunday, June 23 to Friday June 28, 2019

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.
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!
