We organize a one-day workshop on “Nonlocal Methods for Data Processing and Analysis: Theory, Optimisation, and Applications” on June 4th, 2018 at the Politecnico di Milano. The purpose of this meeting is to give an overview of the state-of-the-art nonlocal models for big data and image analysis. Focus will be given also to the optimization aspects and the numerical issues linked to the actual realization of these models, which renders quite challenging in particular for large data. Several applications of nonlocal methods will further be presented.


Registration for this workshop is free. Lunch and beverages in coffee breaks will be provided for all participants. Please fill out this short registration form if you are interested to participate.


Soon we will provide a list of affiliated hotels for participants interested in staying in Milan. For researchers involved in NoMADS accomodation will be provided if needed.


The event will be held at the Politecnico di Milano (Italy). Although the actual schedule is not yet finalized the workshop will be on June 4th, 2018 approximately between 9.30am and 5pm such that participants are able to get early to Bologna for the opening of the SIAM Conference on Imaging Science (IS18) on June 5th. The list of confirmed speakers for this workshop consists of:

  • Coloma Ballester (Universitat Pompeu Fabra)
  • Martin Benning (University of Cambridge)
  • Guy Gilboa (Technion Haifa)
  • Loïc Landrieu (French National Geographical Institute)
  • Carola Schönlieb (University of Cambridge)
  • Silvia Villa (Politecnico di Milano)
