5-7 November 2019
Following the successful first and second International Workshops on Mathematical Geophysics in 2015 and 2017, the 3rd edition will take place in November 2019 in Beijing, China. The central theme is traditional vs. learning methods to solve geophysical problems associated with data processing, inversion, and interpretation.
Over the last few decades, mathematical techniques inspired by the fields of harmonic analysis, dimensionality reduction, and dictionary learning led to significant advancements in seismic data processing and imaging. More recently we witnessed considerable progress in machine learning and its successful applications to different fields. This workshop will be a forum to discuss how traditional methods and machine learning techniques can help solve geophysical problems in the areas of geophysical data processing, inversion, and interpretation.
The workshop includes discussions on algorithms and studies that address both theoretical and operational challenges in geophysical exploration. We encourage experts from the fields of geophysics, computer sciences, and applied mathematics to participate in this event to exchange ideas and develop new visions together.
