AusTomo III - Third Australian Tomography Workshop

Wednesday the 23rd of November 2011

Leonard Huxley lecture theatre, Australian National University, Canberra

The 3rd AusTomo workshop will be held on 23rd November at the Australian National University.

The aim of the meeting is to bring the Australian tomography community together to increase awarenessness of each group's expertise, to discuss current and future research directions, and to encourage collaboration.

This is one of the key meetings in the region for the general tomography community and practitioners from experimental and theoretical backgrounds, from x-ray-, optical- or electron-based methods, are very welcome. As the meeting runs for 1 day, presentations will be awarded to 1 or 2 representatives of each group attending. Presentations are encouraged to cover prospective work and should aim to stimulate forward thinking about 3D imaging in general. Themes might include:

  • application to a specific research theme (eg. pre-clinical imaging, materials investigation)
  • data management (eg. archive and access)
  • algorithm development (eg. reconstruction, segmentation, data analysis, visualisation)
  • Hardware design, optimisation and specimen methodologies (eg.,staining methods, new instrumentation)
  • Facility best practice (eg. laboratory setup for general users, data formats)

Further details

Presentations will be allocated 30 min (including questions). A poster session will be held over the lunch hour. We welcome posters from past conferences that illustrate your work.

The program will commence at 9am and conclude by 4pm on Wednesday 23rd November, (Huxley Lecture Theatre, Mills Rd, ANU). Lunch and morning/afternoon teas will be provided without cost to the delegates.

The conference is free of charge to all delegates. To register simply fill in the following fields, copy/paste and email to Andrew Kingston by Friday 21st October.
