Call for Papers: Inverse Problems Africa 2012, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia

The registration is now open for Inverse Problems Africa (IPA2012) in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, in October 2012. The event, which will have a strong emphasis on incoherent scatter radars and EISCAT_3D techniques, will include an inverse problems school (15th to 20th October 2012) and a conference (22nd to 26th October 2012).

The lecturers for the school thus far are
  1. Markku Lehtinen, University of Oulu, Finland — Statistical Inversion and Incoherent Scatter Radar
  2. Heikki Haario, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland — Epidemiology Models and MarkovChain Monte Carlo Methods
  3. Wilson Mahera, University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania — Stochastic Differential Equations and their Applications to Pollutant Dispersion in Shallow Waters
  4. Mikko Orispää, University of Oulu, Finland — Tomographic Imaging
The conference will cover, among others, the following topics:
  1. Statistical and Classical Inversion
  2. Numerical Methods and Software
  3. Partial Differential Equations and Stochastic Differential Equations
  4. Mathematical Finance and Insurance
  5. Applications: Radar, Tomography, Imaging, Epidemiology
The conference will be organised as thematic days. Every day will be opened by a keynote speech by an internationally known expert.
