We have been made aware of a convincing email scam that is focusing on our Programme and Workshop participants. Participants may receive an email from a firm called Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes. This might include a request to provide them with credit card information.
Please note, INI will never ask for your card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store https://onlinesales.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.
The history of mathematics of tomography goes back more than a century, with Radon's seminal contribution in 1917 predating the invention of the actual X-ray CT scanner for which Cormack and Hounsfield were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1979. Many modern medical imaging techniques still use X-rays, however alternatives utilising magnetic resonance, ultrasound, optics, conductivity, impedance, often in conjunction with injection of contrast, have been developed and became the method of choice in many clinical scenarios. On the other hand, tomography found applications in other contexts, e.g., non-destructive testing, security and process monitoring, where concerns of dose or irradiation are not at the forefront.
While classical transmission X-ray CT, MRI, photoacoustic imaging (PAT), PET or SPECT can be modelled by linear inverse problems, many techniques like diffuse optical tomography (DOT), electrical impedance tomography (EIT) or ultrasound tomography (USCT) result in nonlinear inverse problems. Increasingly, scientists consider multiple contrasts simultaneously, e.g., multi-energy X-ray CT, PET/MR, PET/CT, PAT/US, or are interested in evolution over time where risk/gain analysis requires reduction/elimination of radiation dose per each individual scan. The trend is clear to consider increasingly complicated contrast mechanisms with complex and computationally expensive forward models and possibly multimodal and limited data. On the other hand, the numerical methods available for the solution of the forward problems are often not well adapted for use in the inverse solver setting where accuracy is limited by ill-posedness and measurement noise, regularisers are included in the formulation and forward solvers are called repeatedly for similar problems. Moreover, in the age of big data, the synergies between inverse problems and machine learning offer exciting new insights.
In this workshop we gather experts in modelling and solution of various nonlinear and rich tomographic problems across the academia and industry with the goal to exchange ideas, cross-fertilise between modalities and identify and address common challenges.
The Registration Package includes admission to all seminars, lunches and refreshments on the days that lectures take place (Monday - Friday), wine reception and formal dinner, but does not include other meals or accommodation.
Virtual registration is free, and includes virtual admission to all seminars and does not include physical attendance, meals or accommodation.
Formal Dinner Only
Participants on the Registration Package, including organisers and speakers, are automatically included in this event. For all remaining participants who would like to attend, such as programme participants, the above charge will apply.
Unfortunately we do not have any accommodation to offer so all successful applicants will need to source their own accommodation.

Lunch Lunch timings and location will be confirmed with the timetable.
Evening Meal Participants are free to make their own arrangements for dinner.
Formal Dinner The Formal Dinner will be held at St. John's College on Wednesday 29th March at 19:30.
The event is a tradition for INI participants and gives you a chance to socialise with your colleagues on a more personal level. It is not one to miss!

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
