Research workshop

Overview:

This research workshop on stochastic simulation and optimisation in image processing will bring together world-leading scientists on computational statistics, optimisation and statistical image processing to discuss the theoretical and methodological challenges facing modern statistical image processing, with a particular focus on ill-posed inverse problems that are high-dimensional, have unknown parameters or involve intractable statistical models. The aim is to promote transferral of ideas and methodologies and identify opportunities for synergy between these important areas, in particular through the integration of stochastic simulation and modern optimisation.

Please see the workshop website (http://www.sustain.bris.ac.uk/ws-image-processing/) for information about the meeting's scientific programme, travel to Bristol, accommodation, etc.

The scope of the workshop includes basic theory and methods and algorithms, and applications in the following areas:

  • Theory, methods and algorithms
    • Stochastic simulation for high-dimensional and image processing (IP) statistical models.
    • Recent advances in convex optimisation methods for IP.
    • Variational methods for statistical inference in IP.
    • Computational methods for intractable models (e.g., pseudo-marginal MCMC, likelihood-free methods, stochastic gradient MCMC, etc.).
    • General IP methodology for high-dimensional inverse problems with uknown parameters (e.g., blind, semi-blind, unsupervised problems).
  • Application Areas
    • Modelling and methodology for remote sensing applications
    • Modelling and methodology for medical and biological applications
