CfP: Gene Golub SIAM Summer School 2011, Waves and Imaging, Vancouver, Canada

Waves and Imaging
Dates: July 4 - 15, 2011.
Location: University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.

Radar Imaging: Margaret Cheney, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Computerized Tomography: Frank Natterer, WWU Muenster
Seismic Imaging: Laurent Demanet, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Imaging in Random Media: Josselin Garnier, Paris VII (Jussieu)

These mini-courses will cover the mathematical underpinnings common to most wave-based imaging modalities, such as wave scattering, integral geometry of Radon and generalized Radon transforms, and statistical stabililization techniques. The computer labs will introduce the
participants to various imaging routines in an integrated manner: matched filtering, filtered backprojection, adjoint-state methods, and correlation- based methods. A goal of the summer school is to lead the participants to appreciate the myriad of research-level questions left
open in mathematics, numerical methods, and practical applications of imaging with waves.

The summer school targets mathematics graduate students with interests in computational mathematics, partial differential equations, numerical methods, statistical signal processing, image processing, inverse problems, or compressed sensing. Graduate students from
engineering, geophysics and other departments who have affinities with mathematics are also strongly encouraged to apply. There is a limit of 50 participating students. There will be no registration fee. Funding for local accommodation and/or local expenses will be available for
some of the participants. Limited travel funds may also be available. See the guidelines on how to apply. The application deadline is February 1, 2011.

Note that this is not a conference or a workshop. Participation in the summer school is restricted to students who are currently working toward a M.S., Ph.D., or equivalent degree. The Gene Golub SIAM Summer School is a satellite event of ICIAM 2011, the International
Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, taking place on July 18-22, 2011, in Vancouver. This major conference is held every four years in lieu of the SIAM Annual Meeting. All participants of the summer school are encouraged to extend their stay in Vancouver for
ICIAM 2011.
