The workshop aims at gathering experts in the mathematical study of different medical imaging techniques that share the common trait of using electrodes to acquire data on an electromagnetic phenomenon. To name a few, these include:

- Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT), planned to be used, e.g., in tumor detection. This is a very active field of research in the mathematical inverse problems community, particularly in Finland. 
- Electroencephalography (EEG), used in brain monitoring. France counts several mathematical specialists of this imaging modality. 
- Noninvasive electrocardiographic imaging (ECGi), used in the prevention of cardiac

Each of these imaging methods has been studied deeply from a mathematical point of view, from the mathematical modeling of the occurring phenomena to the development of efficient numerical methods to solve the corresponding inverse problems. However, even though these modalities share similar features, the scientific communities that work on one of these techniques are often not aware of the developments regarding the related imaging modalities. The primary objective of the workshop is therefore to gather mathematicians working on the aforementioned medical imaging techniques in order to discuss the similarities and differences between the methods as well as related mathematical problems and recent theoretical and numerical developments.

Practical information:

The workshop will take place within the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, in the Katherine Johnson Room. A detailed map of campus is available here : Access to campus. The room is located on the first floor in building no. 23 on the campus map (rue Sébastienne Guyot).

From downtown, take the Metro B line up to "Université Paul Sabatier" station. The 1R3 mathematics building is two hundred meters away from the Metro station.


From the train station "Matabiau", take the Metro A line up to "Jean Jaures" (one stop) then take the Metro Line B up to "Université Paul Sabatier";

From the airport "Blagnac", take Tramway T2 up to the last stop "Palais de Justice", then take the Metro Line B up to "Université Paul Sabatier"
