Outline of Scientific Activities

The program will take place in conjunction with the Mitacs Focus Period on the Mathematics of Medical Imaging (FP-MMI). A Mitacs International Focus Period consists of a series of scientific events on diverse topics - all centered on a common theme that addresses key socio-economic issues of high provincial and federal priority. June 2011 to August 2012 is the MITACS International Focus Period on The Mathematics of Medical Imaging.

The Fields Thematic Program on Inverse Problems and Imaging aims to focus in depth on selected active areas of recent mathematical research in Inverse Problems and Image Analysis. There will be emphasis on longer events that encourage collaborations on important new directions of investigation. The main components will be:

1.A month-long program on Geometry in Inverse Problems.
2.A month-long program on Variational Methods and Compressive Sensing in Imaging
3.A two-month Summer Thematic Program on "Mathematics of Medical Imaging.

Program Visitors

We will support a number of visitors to the program, including visiting Ph.D. students

All scientific events are open to the mathematical sciences community. Visitors who are interested in office space or funding are requested to apply by filling out the application form (now closed). Fields scientific programs are devoted to research in the mathematical sciences, and enhanced graduate and post-doctoral training opportunities. Part of the mandate of the Institute is to broaden and enlarge the community, and to encourage the participation of women and members of visible minority groups in our scientific programs.
