Open the Workshop Programme (PDF)

A number of clear application domains in the SESAME region have already been identified, including Archaeology and Cultural Heritage, Health and Biomedicine, Geology and Materials and Nano Science, and Engineering.

This two-day workshop is open to researchers and interested parties across academic disciplines, industry, governmental services, and other interested parties, regardless of domain, as any area with material samples can benefit from the application of high-resolution tomography to specific problems or research questions.

During the event, presentations by invited speakers will lay the ground for discussions on applications, and how these may feed into the design of the tomography beamline, the first in the region. (Read our project page for more information on BEATS).

Talks will cover the following topics:

  • – Status of SESAME
  • – BEATS layout and plans
  • – Applications of tomography in Archaeology, Cultural Heritage, and Paleontology, in Health and Biomedical research, in Geology, in Chemical and Industrial Engineering, in fuel cells and battery research, and in Materials and Nano Science
  • – The role of managing big data.-

Invited speakers include:
Giorgio Paolucci (SESAME), Marco Stampanoni (PSI), Alexander Rack (ESRF), Kirsi O. Lorentz (CyI), Mirjam van Daalen (PSI).
