Image Processing
Göttingen, Sept 4-6, 2012
Historic Observatory Cubist
Over the last decade mathematicians from a broad range of disciplines have been drawn to the challenges of image processing.  As much as the practical application of efficiently and accurately encoding, reconstructing, analyzing and mining images, image processing today represents a confluence of harmonic analysis, inverse problems, variational analysis, mathematical statistics, partial differential equations, optimization and approximation theory.  Image processing presents unique opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of new directions in mathematics spawned from the interaction of distinct mathematical communities. The workshop serves as the annual GAMM workshop of the newly founded GAMM activity group Mathematical Signal and Image Processing.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together young researchers and a distinguished group of scientists whose lectures are intended to establish new and exciting directions for future investigations.

Reinhausen near Göttingen,  Akademie Waldschlösschen  
Akademie Waldschlösschen The renovated campus of artnouvaux buildings, surrounded by gardens and terrasses, is nestled in the hilly woodlands 13 km southeast of the university town Göttingen and offers an ideal atmosphere for concentrated work and learning.  It is also a perfect place to regenerate and relax.  The “Waldschlösschen” consists of the comfortable and ecologically carefully restored Art Nouvaux building, the Dependance “Waldhaus” built in 1991 to organic architecture standards, and the “Gartenhaus” finished in 2008.

There are ten seminar and dayrooms for up to five parallel running seminar groups. The “Große Saal” serves as focus and “social centre”. The rooms are equipped with modern media and working materials. Three pianos and one grand piano offer the possibility to work intensively with music. Most seminar rooms are on the ground floor and have access to gardens and their own terrasses, so that in summer working outside is also possible.
