IMI Thematic Semester on Imaging


March - December 2017

Imaging is a vibrant and rapidly growing area of research with many diverse applications for example in medicine, physics, astronomy, meteorology, electronics and popular culture. The term encompasses a wide range of techniques, which are used to either create visual representations of objects or to extract information from images.

IMI imaging thematic semesterBringing together academics to share knowledge, exchange ideas and stimulate new collaborations across departments, IMI is coordinating a university-wide thematic semester on imaging, its applications and the mathematics behind it.

Some of the mathematics which lie at the heart of modern imaging methods include signal processing, analysis, statistics, tomography and the recent idea of compressed sensing.


Talks, seminars and workshops 


Academic visitor

In late May, Dr Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb, Director of the Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information at University of Cambridge and Co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare, will pay an extended visit and give a public lecture on Mathematics Can Make You Fly? Special effects and image manipulation which will include a description of the use of inpainting techniques to restore photographs.




Take part in the Imaging Thematic Semester

All academics at the University of Bath are warmly invited to take part in the thematic semester on Imaging.
