Into2014 (Industrial Tomography Workshop 2014), Helsinki, October 13-15 2014

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 23:15 to Wednesday, October 15, 2014 - 23:15

The Industrial Tomography Workshop (into2014) is a scientific conference that was organized at the University of Helsinki, Finland, taking place on October 13-15, 2014. The workshop brought together academic and industrial experts on tomography with a two-fold goal:
1. Transferring the latest scientific research results into commercial research and development pipeline, and
2. Educate the academic community about the current industrial needs related to tomography.
The background of the academic participants is physics, mathematics, signal and image processing, and engineering. Industrial representatives are invited from several business areas, including medical imaging and nondestructive testing technology.

The local organizing institutions are Department of Mathematics and Statistics of University of Helsinki and the Finnish Inverse Problems Society (
The annual Management Committee meeting of the EXTREMA COST Action took place as part of this workshop.
Local Organiser: Samuli Siltanen (University of Helsinki, Finland)
The EXTREMA COST Action provided reimbursement for 30 participants, covering travel and lodging costs and Local Organizer Support, for a total of € 29.727,25.

Joint meeting with MP1203 (X-ray metrology), Rome, May 14-16 2014.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 - 23:15

This meeting brings together participants from the COST Actions MP1203 (X-ray metrology) and MP1207 (X-ray tomography) to explore the boundaries between the two topics and find common interests.

Meeting on Tomography and Applications, Milano, May 7-9 2014.

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 - 23:15

This meeting combined lectures and discussion on a broad range of theoretical, computational and experimental aspects of tomography. Several EXTREMA members participated in the meeting, from various backgrounds. The meeting was not COST-only, and as such it allowed to introduce our network to a partially new audience. MP1207 provided participant reimbursement for 7 participants and Local Organiser Support.

Special session on Combinatorial problems in Tomography at ECCO 2014, Munich, May 1 2014.

Thursday, May 1, 2014 - 23:15

This special EXTREMA session on combinatorial aspects of tomography was embedded in the 27th conference of the European Chapter on Combinatorial Optimization. It was a 1-day event, where researchers from theoretical aspects of tomography and more practice-oriented scientists presented their work and had discussions, aimed at finding common interests and setting new directions for joint research. MP1207 provided participant reimbursement for 7 participants and Local Organiser Support.

Training school on using the ASTRA toolbox for X-ray tomography, Antwerp, April 9-11 2014.

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 - 23:15

This dedicated EXTREMA training school took place at the Vision Lab of the University of Antwerp. In a three day program the trainees were introduced to performing advanced tomographic reconstruction using the ASTRA toolbox, a flexible open source platform for tomography. MP1207 provided trainee grants for 15 participants, reimbursement for two trainers, and Local Organiser Support.

Lorentz Center Workshop Advanced X-ray Tomography, Leiden, February 10-14 2014.

Friday, February 14, 2014 - 23:15

This dedicated EXTREMA workshop took place at the Lorentz Center in Leiden ( The program consisted of a broad lecture program in the mornings and focused discussions in the afternoons, where the participants worked in three groups on several key problems at the boundary of X-ray imaging and computation. MP1207 provided participant reimbursement for 32 participants and Local Organiser Support.

Training school on soft X-ray cryo-tomography reconstruction of cells, Madrid, January 15-17 2014.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - 23:15

In the frame of three European projects, the Instruct ESFRI project on Structural Biology, the Biostruct-X project and the COST Action MP1207, the Instruct Image Processing Center at CNB-CSIC organized a training school on 3D Reconstruction in Electron Microscopy and Soft X-ray Microscopy. The course was focused on image processing topics. The course was attended by 21 participants. MP1207 provided trainee grants for 4 participants, reimbursement for one trainer, and Local Organiser Support.

Workshop on Algorithms for 3D Reconstruction in Soft X-Ray Microscopy, Madrid, January 20-21 2014.

Monday, January 20, 2014 - 23:00

This workshop was focused on soft X-ray tomography of cells, using Fresnel zone plates. Recovering accurate 3D images from the measured signals requires new inversion algorithms. The workshop served as a forum for discussion on solution approaches (both experimental and computational). The workshop was attended by 17 participants. MP1207 provided reimbursement for several speakers, and Local Organiser Support.

Scientific Kick-Off Meeting, ESRF, Grenoble, October 10-11 2013.

Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 23:00

The Scientific Kick-Off Meeting of the EXTREMA COST Action took place at the European Synchrotron (ESRF) in Grenoble. The meeting was attended by about 50 (invited) participants. The event consisted of a lecture program and several discussion sessions. MP1207 provided reimbursement for all attending MC members and several invited speakers, as well as Local Organiser Support.
