Leader of the group Computational Imaging: Joost Batenburg.


Our research group is developing the next generation of 3D imaging – enabling scientists to look further into objects of all kinds. Based on mathematics, algorithms and numerical solution techniques, our approach is interdisciplinary, combining aspects of mathematics, computer science and physics. We pride ourselves on the versatility of our solutions, and our algorithms can be applied to a wide range of imaging in science, medicine and industry. In Computational Imaging, it’s our goal to constantly push the boundaries of research. By combining advanced image acquisition, parameter estimation, and discrete tomography algorithms for example, we are able to develop workflows for 3D electron microscopy at atomic resolution.




CWI leads European network of imaging specialists

Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) will lead the research network EXTREMA, which was officially launched yesterday with a kick-off meeting in Brussels. EXTREMA aims to create an interdisciplinary research community consisting of both X-ray specialists and mathematicians. Together they will work on the next generation of imaging techniques to advance both science and industrial R&D.

Access by public transport:
    Train: CWI is a five minute walk away from NS station Amsterdam Science Park. This station is served four times an hour from the directions Amsterdam Centraal – Schiphol and Almere – Amersfoort. Walk through the tunnel after leaving the platform for the science park (northeast exit), cross the street (Carolina MacGillavrylaan) at the crosswalk and walk past the brown building of Amsterdam University College. You will be able to see CWI’s main entrance on your left behind the parking lot.
    Bus: alternatively, bus 40 serves Amsterdam Science Park four times an hour from stations Amsterdam Amstel (train, metro, tram) and Amsterdam Muiderpoort (train, tram). Get off at bus stop ‘Science Park’ or ‘Science Park Aer’. During rush hour bus 240 can be used, too.


Local accommodations at which CWI can offer discount rates are listed below (including breakfast). These hotel rates are maximum prices.  If lower rates are available at the time of your booking, the lower rate will be booked by the hotel. Please be informed that these rates are for refundable bookings. If you prefer, you can ask the hotels for their non-refundable rates:
