Real time tomography workshop

Event Description: 

Focused Mini-Workshop on Real-Time 3D Tomography, April 10-12 2017, CWI, Amsterdam
In recent years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the capability to perform fast tomographic data acquisition. Fast acquisition is of crucial importance to enable 3D imaging of dynamic processes. At the same time, it also holds the potential to transform tomography from a technique used for research purposes into a powerful inspection tool capable of scanning hundreds of objects in sequence.
The ability to acquire tomographic datasets at sub-second rates also imposes new challenges and opportunities on the computational part of the tomography pipeline. Data transport, high-performance computing, efficient algorithms for reconstruction and visualization must all be connected to keep up with the acquisition speed.
In this focused mini-workshop, which is part of the EXTREMA COST Action, the participants will engage in an in-depth discussion on the state-of-the-art and future prospects of combining fast data-acquisition with real-time data processing and computing capabilities. The programme will consist of lectures by experts in fast image acquisition, high-performance computing, image reconstruction, and other related fields. The workshop will have an informal character, with ample time reserved for hands-on discussions.
