  • Janne Hakkarainen (Finnish Meteorological Institute): Kalman filter
  • Ville Kolehmainen (University of Eastern Finland): Bayesian inversion and MCMC
  • Marko Laine (Finnish Meteorological Institute): Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods
  • Mikko Salo (University of Jyväskylä): Applications of microlocal analysis to inverse problems
  • Short talks:

  • Hanne Kekkonen (University of Cambridge): TBA
  • Matti Lassas (University of Helsinki): Geometric inversion
  • Aku Seppänen (University of Eastern Finland): TBA
  • Samuli Siltanen (University of Helsinki): X-ray tomography
  • Antti Solonen (Leanheat Oy, LUT University): Hierarchical Bayesian models for marine vessels
  • Johanna Tamminen (Finnish Meteorological Institute): Satellite remote sensing
  • Tanja Tarvainen (University of Eastern Finland): Tomographic imaging with light and sound
