Mathematics for Detecting, Locating and Characterising Metal Objects

 Jun 01 2021

14:00 - 17:00

Organisers:

  • Paul Ledger, University of Keele
  • Bill Lionheart, University of Manchester

 

Sponsored by EPSRC and the Royal Society research on  the mathematical theory underpinning new  developments in detecting, locating and characterising metal objects has progressed in recent years. Read more here.

Application areas for this technology are widespread and include,  land mine detection, security screening and food safety. We are looking to build a research/end-user community for metal detection. 

This afternoon event is our initial community builiding activity and will include: 

  • a series of short presentations overviewing the research in this area

  • short metal detection challenges 'pitches' - followed by breakout sessions linking these challenges and the research

  • discussion forum - how to support the activity going forward

If you are a reasearcher in this area and wish to present OR an end user and wish to understand whether this research can support your metal detection challenges, we would like to hear from you.

Registration will open soon.

 

This event is supported as part of the ICMS Knowledge Exhange Support for Academia-Industry Meetings.  Further details are available here.
