Workshop on Mathematical Signal and Image Analysis

April 1-3, 2019             

Raitenhaslach, Germany

Program     Registration     Accomodation     Directions

Time and place


The workshop is to bring together leading researchers from different facets of mathematics, signal and image processing to present their latest cutting-edge research and to establish new directions for future investigations and cooperation. It will also serve as the annual meeting of the GAMM activity group on Mathematical Signal and Image Processing Pfeil.

The goal of the workshop is to connect researchers in all areas related to the broad research field of mathematical signal and image analysis. For example, we welcome contributions that use and develop tools from

for applications related to
