Conference Overview

Machine learning for scientific imaging is a rapidly growing area of research used to characterize physical, material, chemical, and biological processes in both large and small scale scientific experiments. Physics inspired machine learning differs from more general machine learning research in that it emphasizes quantitative reproducibility and the incorporation of physical models. ML methods used for scientific imaging typically incorporate physics-based imaging processes or physics-based models of the underlying data. These models can be based on partial differential equations (PDEs), integral equations, symmetries or other regularity conditions in two or more dimensions. Physics aware models enhance the ability of the ML methods to generalize and robustly operate in the presence of modeling error, incomplete data, and measurement uncertainty. Contributions to the conference are solicited on topics ranging from fundamental theoretical advances to detailed implementations and novel applications for scientific discovery.

Advances in machine learning echo through the halls of traditional fields, changing the very way we view these subjects. Yet the enigmatic complexity of materials science sets it apart, demanding multi-scale observations of hierarchical structure with a myriad of microscopic techniques. Yet, within the shadows, the spirit of machine learning lurks, and computational imaging techniques, such as advanced microscopy, tomography, and spectroscopy, are seen in a new light, allowing unprecedented advances, transcending the boundaries of the unknown. Efficient extraction of complex structural and chemical information from materials at various scales and fusion of high-dimensional imaging datasets enables the automatic identification of key material features, leading to accelerated material discovery and characterization. An apparition of possibilities emerges enabling the prediction of material behavior, degradation, and performance under different conditions for designing innovative materials for applications in energy, electronics, medicine, and beyond. The committee invites contributions exploring the advancements in data acquisition, image reconstruction, and feature extraction techniques. Additionally, the organizing chairs encourage presentations on applying deep neural networks, generative models, graph theory and topology, optimization methods, inverse methods, physics integration with learning, and other emerging techniques toward enhancing materials analysis and accelerating the translation of research findings into real-world applications.

This is a joint special session with Computational Imaging XXII.
