Imaging techniques are used across many applications and research fields. The public at large is familiar with biomedical imaging where main techniques are CT, SPECT/PET, MRI and Optical Microscopy. Other applications are found in engineering, cultural heritage research, security etc. where neutron and X-ray radiography and tomography play an increasing role.
The workshop will try to identify common approaches across different fields of research, techniques and scale lengths. Topics addressed will include:
Overview of the different imaging techniques
Multi-parametric molecular imaging
Imaging for the Heritage Science
Imaging for Homeland security
Image formation and processing
Algorithms for reconstruction and correction
Imaging at the nanoscale
The Conference strongly encourages participation by young scientists.
The programme will include tutorial lectures, invited oral presentations and posters.
