## Imaging and Computing Seminar

This new seminar series covers a wide range of topics in information science (data, signals, images), computational science (numerical analysis, inverse problems, optimization), and the mathematics that underlies those areas.

Co-organized by Laurent Demanet (Math) and Alison Malcolm (EAPS). The seminar normally meets on Thursdays at 4:15pm in room 36-112. Contact Laurent for opting in or out of the seminar mailing list.
