Program Overview:

The 2nd Alps-Adriatic Inverse Problems Workshop will be held as a Chemnitz Symposium on tour at the  Department of Mathematics of the Alpen-Adria-Universitaet Klagenfurt  (and to some extent online, depending on the pandemic situation) during September 22-24, 2021.

The aim of this workshop is to gather  scientists working on the theory and applications of inverse problems in  academia and industry, in order to present their research, exchange  ideas, and start new collaborations. Scientists at an early stage of the  career (PhD students, postdocs) are particularly encouraged to  participate. 

The workshop will be held in hybrid form. 

We will possibly not be able to accommodate talks by each participant. If selection is necessary, we will prefer in person talks, but remaining slots will be assigned for online presentations.
