Abstract: The field of digital image restoration is concerned with the reconstruction or estimation of uncorrupted images from noisy, blurred ones. This blurring may be caused by optical distortions, object motion during imaging, or atmospheric turbulence. There are existing or potential applications of image restoration in many scientific and engineering fields, e.g. aerial imaging, remote sensing electron microscopy, and medical imaging. From these arise some real challenging problems related to image reconstruction/restoration that open the way to some new fundamental scientific questions closely related with the world we interact with and Mathematics has become one of the main driving forces of the modern development of image restoration.

The purpose of this mini-symposium is to gather the leading researchers in the areas of image restoration/reconstruction to present a series of talks that will expose the current state of knowledge in the algorithmic and application field.
Our goal is also to establish connections between different techniques, talk about important issues in the emerging application fields and generate novel ideas for future development.
