About

The Kick-off Workshop of the Thematic Einstein Semester on Mathematics of Imaging in Real-World Challenges will take place in PTB on 6-8 October 2021. This event will bring together practitioners, biomedical engineers, computer vision and machine learning experts as well as applied mathematicians in order to exchange on the current developments in applications and theory of imaging science. This meeting will be designed to foster interdisciplinary collaborative teams in order to identify and address the most pressing issues in the field.

Apart from the invited talks, the Kick-off workshop will include a special section on Public Software and Rewarding in Science, a podium discussion on Career Pathways as well as a poster session for students and young researchers.
