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.

TECHNICAL ART HISTORY SERIES - Digital imaging methods for Cultural Heritage

The Venice Center for Digital and Public Humanities, together with the Rijksmuseum and CWI Amsterdam and NICAS, the Netherlands Institute for Conservation, Art and Science, are organising a short series of lectures on object-based research, including virtual letter unfolding, digital art restoration, 3D modeling and software for the analysis of diverse data forms, with the aim to stimulate collaborations and scientific discussion on Cultural Heritage challenges in the digital world.

Please join us for the first lecture on Tuesday May 11, at 4-5.30 pm CET. Please register following the link or QR code on the poster.

Title: Unlocking Art History: Letterlocking, X-ray Microtomography, and the Virtual Unfolding Algorithm
Speakers: Jana Dambrogio (MIT Libraries), Daniel Starza Smith (King's College London), Holly Jackson (MIT), David Mills (Queen Mary University of London)

For this first session, there will also be an opportunity to do some letterlocking yourself! Please bring some paper (printer paper is fine), scissors, some stickers or sticky tape (kids’ stickers are more fun!), and some sewing thread.
