The draft program for the Aus Tomo II workshop is now available. We have a full program and everyone who submitted an abstract for a talk has a speaking slot of half an hour. The general talks will go all day Thursay and on into Friday AM and the synchrotron specific talks & tours will be on Friday PM. there are also a small number of posters.

Monash registrants should NOT use the online payment system but instead should send Cost Centre / Fund number to Imants Svalbe.

With just a few weeks to go till the 2nd Australian Tomography Workshop to be held 13-14th November, we would like to finalise the program and firm up numbers. We are asking if attendees could formally register for the event by 20th October, and we are also extending a 'last chance' call for abstracts - the extended deadline is the end of this week (10th October). The registration form is here. Please pass this notice on to any colleagues that may be interested.
The registration fee is $50 per head, however, registration is free for speakers and there are a number of free registrations available for students on a first-come first served basis. We may also be able offer some limited assistance to interstate students towards the costs of attendance – please contact the conference organisers for details. We are setting up an online ecart system to accept registration payments and we’ll email you details of the payment system when we have them.

The venue for the workshop will be lecture theatre S1 on Monash University Campus in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Tours are being arranged to the Australian Synchrotron and the Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy, both of which are within walking distance of the venue. Transport & parking details will be posted to the website nearer the time.

The program is not yet finalised but a rough outline of the workshop is as follows (subject to change):

We are now calling for abstracts for the workshop. Topics are open to open to all aspects of tomography from the nano-scale upwards including theoretical/computational aspects. The deadline for submissions is 30 September. Please complete the abstract template (MS Word format) and return it to Sherry Mayo at:


Following on from the successful First Australian Tomography Workshop organised by Tim Senden and colleagues at ANU last December, we are planning a followup workshop this November to be held at Monash University. The aim of the meeting is to create awareness of each others work and to foster links and collaborations. The meeting is open to all aspects of  tomography, whether with x-rays, electrons or theoretical/computationals aspects.

The workshop will run for up to 2 days, the first day being focussed on tomography generally with a range of contributed talks from attendees. We will be joined at the meeting by overseas visitor Jean-Pierre Guedon from Nantes' Polytech in France who will speak on Discrete Radon transforms. The second day will focus more on existing plans and future proposals for tomography at the Australian Synchrotron. We also hope to arrange tours to nearby facilities such as the Synchrotron and the new Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy.
