Representation of ECMI in AIP2017

In the 9th Applied Inverse Problems Conference (AIP 2017), Hangzhou, China, two presentations were given by Adérito Araújo (vice president) and Leonidas Mindrinos (council member). Both of them were presented in the mini-symposium: ”Inverse problems in quantitative optical and electrical tomography” organized by L. Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna) and K. Knudsen (Technical […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by an overhead projector, modeling the […]

“Quantitative Tomographic Imaging – Radon meets Bell and Maxwell”

The Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) in Linz, Austria organizes a Summer School (10th – 12th July) and a Workshop (13th – 14th July) as follow up events of the successful conference “100 Years of the Radon Transform”. This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together scientists from Physics, Medical Physics and Mathematics […]

VF2++ – a subgraph isomophism algorithm for molecular pattern matching

In a previous blog entry, we introduced COIN-OR::LEMON (, the open source C++ graph and network modelling library. As we mentioned there, this library targets both academic and industrial applications. In this post a use-case for the latter is shown.   Last year, QuantumBio Inc.1 approached us with a simple request: they were using LEMON […]

Image Analysis for Particle Tracking in Wood Cutting Processes

Austria is a key player in the forestry and wood industry. Separating or cutting of wood is one of the most important process steps resulting in huge amounts of particles of different sizes (chips, dust). The rapid removal of particles from the process zone and from the processing space is thus of great importance (surface quality, […]

Cong Shi: PhD at the University of Vienna

My name is Cong Shi, and I come from China. Starting from October of 2013, I am a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Otmar Scherzer at the Computational Science Center in the University of Vienna. Our group is very big, including researchers in Vienna and Linz, in Austria. The atmosphere between colleagues is […]
