Modeling scattered electromagnetic waves


  by Leonidas Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna, Austria) In many applications, like material parameter investigation and nondestructive testing, arises the inverse problem of reconstructing the position, the shape and / or the properties of a cavity or an inclusion from given measurements. A good knowledge of the direct problem is necessary […]

Detecting cell motion during early embryogenesis


by Lukas F. Lang (RICAM, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria) l… Our main motivation is to estimate cell motion in time-lapse volumetric microscopy images depicting fluorescently labelled cells of a live zebrafish embryo. It has been only recently possible to obtain high-resolution observations of biological model organisms such as the zebrafish. Increasing spatial and temporal […]

Image Analysis for Particle Tracking in Wood Cutting Processes

Path lines of the particles using optical flow.

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 […]
