Computational imaging methods combine optics with computation to design imaging systems that are smaller, faster, cheaper, or able to image new things. Machine learning and differentiable optics simulators play a key role in this field, both for solving inverse problems and for modeling and designing optics. This conference will convene experts in optics (microscopy, photography, astronomy) and machine learning and optical modeling, with the goal of generating new synergies among them. We hope to advance the field of computational imaging by delineating and discussing common problems, solutions, and applications in each sub-field.

Janelia will cover lodging and meals for all participants, and travel support is available to those in need (please indicate need in that portion of the application). Participants are expected to stay for the duration of the workshop and will also have an opportunity to extend their stay for continued discussion and collaborative time. 

The meeting will begin at 6pm ET on the first day and end by 1pm ET on the last.

Applications are closed

Please note: Because Janelia conferences are intentionally small and selective, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. We strive for as broad a representation across labs as possible and therefore may limit participation to one person per group. Preference is given to applicants who are active researchers in the field and intend to present their work as a poster or selected talk.
