About the centre

7th annual Tomography for Scientific Advancement (ToScA) symposium, Southampton, UK

Tomography for Scientific Advancement (ToScA) symposium

Along with a broad, multidisciplinary range of applications, this year’s conference will include themes on biological (hard and soft) tissue imaging; understanding materials in 3D and recent advances in hardware and software tools. Workshops will be taking place on Wednesday 11 September and the Symposium on Thursday 12 September & Friday 13 September 2019.

This international symposium will consist of keynote speakers, podium talks, poster presentations and an image competition. The symposium is designed to foster open discussion, networking, and collaborative opportunities between domains of expertise in academia, commercial users, and software and hardware providers.

The symposium will take place at the University of Southampton, hosted by the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences and the Faculty of Medicine, as a collaboration between the µ-VIS X-ray Imaging Centre and the Biomedical Imaging Unit.

Submission for abstracts and the image competition is open now and will close on Fri 14-June 2019.

The µ-VIS X-Ray Imaging Centre combines state-of-the-art equipment and 20 years of experience, plus the expertise of over 40 academic staff from across the university. The centre constitutes a strategic multimillion pound investment (>£5M) in high resolution X-Ray tomographic imaging,offering a unique user experience for advanced 3D imaging. We specifically aim to provide a holistic approach to advanced 3D (volume) imaging, supporting all steps between original domain problem/query, through to verified, publishable conclusions.
