Data Assimilation & Inverse Problems

From Weather Forecasting to Neuroscience

July 22-26, 2013, University of Reading, United Kingdom

Data Assimilation is concerned with the reconstruction of the state of a dynamical system from measured data. It is usually employed in a cycled way, where data are used to correct or guide the dynamical system step by step, while forecasts are generated on a desired time grid. This is a key ingredient for important applications, for example for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) or predictions of Climate Change, but it is also increasingly employed in medical and industrial applications.

The Summer School and Creative Workshop on Data Assimilation and Inverse Problems at the University of Reading provides an introduction into the key concepts and techniques in the field both in algorithmic developments as well as important applications. In a framework which consists of introductory lectures by selected international experts in the field we aim to have time for mutual exchange and discussions in a relaxed and stimulating atmosphere at the green campus of the University of Reading.

Lecturers include: Steven Schiff, Behnam Jafarpour, Takemasa Miyoshi, Massimo Bonavita, Peter Grindrod, Tijana Janjic-Pfander, Roland Potthast, Peter-Jan van Leeuwen, Sarah Dance, Jochen Broecker, Nancy Nichols, Ingo Bojak, Hendrik Reich, Africa Perianez.
Local Organizers: Africa Perianez, Etienne Roesch, Ingo Bojak, Roland Potthast, Kelly Sloan and Douglas Saddy

Where to go to?

The workshop takes place on the green Whiteknights Campus, see Campus UoR, Details at Campus Map, in the Nike Auditorium of the Agriculture Building (No. 59). From London-Heathrow Reading Station is easily accessible by Coach Bus (40min) RailAir, see http://www.railair.com/. Then, take the busses to Lower Earley/University, lines 20 or 21, compare Buses Map, get off at Whiteknights House and walk 10 min to the eastern part of the campus.
