The enormous increase in computing power and the development of powerful algorithms has
made it possible to apply the techniques of Inverse Problems to real-world problems of
growing complexity. Applications include a number of medical as well as other imaging techniques, location of oil and mineral deposits in the earth's substructure, creation of astrophysical images from telescope data, finding cracks and interfaces within materials, shape optimization, model identification in growth processes and, more recently, modelling in the life sciences.

The series of AIP Conferences aim to provide a primary international forum for academic and industrial researchers working on all aspects of inverse problems, such as mathematical modelling, functional analytic
methods, computational approaches, numerical algorithms etc.

The success of the first conference in Montecatini in 2001 with more than 150 participants and several parallel sessions led to the proposal to have this Conference every two years, alternating between North or South America and Europe or a site outside the western hemisphere. A second equally successful conference was thus held in Lake Arrowhead, California in 2003 and finally a third was held in Cirencester in the UK Cotswold region from June 26th to 30th in 2005. The fourth will be held in Vancouver from June 25th to 29th in 2007.

Each AIP Conference will follow the pattern of a number of invited talks from international experts and a set of minisymposia on topical themes. The venues will been chosen to encourage the maximum interaction between all participants.
