The NCMIP (the 1st Intl. ICST Workshop on New Computational Methods for Inverse Problems) workshop will take place on May 16th 2011 at Ecole Normale Supérieure of Cachan (Cachan, South of Paris), France.


Scope.The New Computational Methods for Inverse Problems (NCMIP) Workshop focuses on the recent advances in the resolution of inverse problems. Inverse problems appear in numerous scientific areas such as geophysics, biological and medical imaging, material and structure characterization, electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, and finances… The resolution of inverse problems aims at estimating the parameters of the observed system or structure from data collected by an instrumental sensing or imaging device. Its success firstly requires the collection of relevant observation data. It also requires accurate models describing the physical interactions between the instrumental device and the observed system, as well as the intrinsic properties of the solution itself. Finally, it requires the design of robust, accurate and efficient inversion algorithms. Advanced sensor arrays and imaging devices provide high rate and numerous data; in this context, the efficient resolution of the inverse problem requires to jointly develop new models and inversion methods, taking computational and implementation aspects into account. During the NCMIP workshop, researchers will have the opportunity to bring to light and share new techniques and results in the field of inverse problems.

Workshop topics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following items:

Algorithms and computational aspects of inversion, Bayesian estimation, Kernel methods, Learning methods, Convex optimization, Free discontinuity problems, Metamodels, Proper orthogonal decomposition, Reduced models for the inversion, Non-linear inverse scattering, Image reconstruction and restoration, Applications (bio-medical imaging, non-destructive evaluation)
