Topical Day: Imaging and Image Analysis XV

Imaging by a multitude of modalities from electron, atomic force & optical microscopy, X-ray & neutron imaging, ultrasonic and focused ion beam techniques and more, as well as different methods and techniques used for performing image analysis.

This edition of the Topical Days on Imaging and Image Analysis, will present a broad range of different imaging methods, techniques and applications for material, life and medical science problems. It entails different multi-dimensional and multi-modal methodologies ranging from imaging by microwaves, visible light microscopy, X-rays, neutrons, electrons to chemical imaging and spectroscopy. The ever increasing resolution of modern imaging methods and the growing availability of multi-dimensional imaging capabilities, poses new challenges for the downstream image analysis workflow. Therefore apart from the imaging techniques, this year an unprecedented number of talks will address different aspects of the processing of those images by machine learning and data science methods. The invited speakers will present recent developments in these fields and tools available for the imaging community. 

The program is organized to have a balanced distribution of talks by external speakers and talks highlighting Empa internal research. See the full program and speakers below. 

Target audience

Scientists, Ph.D.’s and post-docs working with different imaging techniques and image analysis methods. Anyone who is interested in learning about the latest developments in imaging and image analyses.
