CAMERA Workshop

Algorithms and Software for Tomographic Reconstruction for Beamlines

October 31 - November 2, 2018, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Building 59, Room 3101

Registration is closed--if you would like to come, please contact Dula Parkinson to see if there is room available.


This workshop is the third in a series. Over the last two years, we discussed the current state-of-the-art for tomographic reconstruction algorithms and software. Also, and which were discussed have both gone live since the first meeting. A number of participants at the 2017 workshop drafted a book chapter reviewing the state of the field (

This year, we continue this year to asses the current landscape of available software, to investigate commonalities and differences among the various approaches, and to discuss required theoretical and algorithmic advancements as well as practical issues of implementation and deployment. Our planned sessions for this year can be found here:
