To understand what computer programming is, and how it should be done, Gauthier van den Hove proposes to study how it is actually done, and induce elements of method fro factual observation. To this end, he carries out a detailed analysis of the first ALGOL 60 system, designed and implemented at the Mathematical Center (now CWI). Everybody is welcome to attend his public defence of his thesis 'New Insights from Old Programs - The Structure of The First ALGOL 60 System'.

The ASTRA Toolbox and the Operator Discretization Library (ODL) are powerful, open-source toolboxes that can be used to create advanced tomography algorithms. Both toolboxes can be used separately, but can also be combined, creating the ability to specify algorithms in a high-level mathematical language, while performing the internal computations with high efficiency.

Thunderstorms continue to pose puzzles to our physical understanding. Transient Luminous Events appear high above thunderclouds, and high energy emissions (gamma-rays, positrons, neutrons) are measured both as longer lasting glows and as flashes. Lightning leader propagation and attachment (possibly with subsequent damage) are another topic of study.
