CCPi aims to provide the UK tomography community with a toolbox of algorithms that increases the quality and level of information that can be extracted by computer tomography. There are two parts; reconstruction techniques to create a 3D volume data set from projections and quantification techniques that can extract relevant objective values from these 3D volumes.

CCPi Tomographic Imaging

CCPi links and work carried out by the Visualisation Group within SCD/STFC and related parties. Workplan for core staff for 2014/15 is required and items listed here are from April 2014.

This wiki is a community site to update on administrative (EPSRC / SCD) targets and discussion points.

CCPi aims to provide the UK tomography community with a toolbox of algorithms that increases the quality and level of information that can be extracted by computer tomography. There are two parts; reconstruction techniques to create a 3D volume data set from projections and quantification techniques that can extract relevant objective values from these 3D volumes.


CCPi Exec and Working Group meeting December 2016

DRAFT AGENDA Items for Exec Meeting 7 November 2016, 12:30pm – 2pm: agenda then Working Group meeting 21 November 2016, 10am-12:30pm

  • Approval of past six months activities
  • Exchanges
  • Software plan / coding milestones
  • New actions / milestones
  • Web-site
  • Future meetings
  • AOB

Extras:

  • CCPi for software integration
  • Summer school in Tomo at Bath
  • DTI visit - lunch, Prof Soren Schmidt, Prof Markus Strobl, Dr Morten Sales with Prof Bill Lionheart (November 2016)

CCPi Executive Summary, last six months: June 2016-November 2016

Networking and funding activities:

  • There have been eight visitor exchanges as short-term fellows receiving small amounts of travel/subsistence money.
  • One STFC summer student producing an updated Drishti/Prayog manual (zechang.xu) emphasis for ISIS/IMAT –launch 10 Oct – funded by ISIS.
  • Two UoM summer students carried out spiral reconstruction - about three months money requested (Moe, Yngve M.; Lloyd, Ryan) – funded by CCPi.
  • Six seminars (software show-and-tells) events and ToScA organisation (included seven posters and a talk)
  • Five Public Engagement events (including the Manchester Science Festival at end of this month)
  • Link/advertise six training courses, for materials science visualisation.
  • One conference paper published (Eurographics UK) as well as the seven posters (ToScA)

We now have 314 members on the email list after a few reminder emails (some may be dormant).

Website refreshed and data archives in use (zenodo and dropbox for business are now available).

https://www.ccpi.ac.uk/

https://zenodo.org/communities/ccpi/?page=1&size=20

Coding Milestones from the core SLA funds: To be discussed.

Current set for 2016-2017 are:

  1. Website, mailing lists, source code and data archives
  2. Organise working group meeting and monthly joint show-and-tell sessions
  3. Support current training courses and organise developer workshop to teach
  4. Embed framework: ISIS/IMAT
  5. Embed framework: DLS/savu
  6. Embed lab based framework: UoM/ UoS/ UoW
  7. Add quantitative code examples from the community
  8. Add pre-processing stages inc. beamhardening correction experiments at DLS.
  9. Organise the main ToScA conference; September 2016
  10. Optional: Iterative code for the Nikon XTek X-Ray CT accelerated versions (OpenCL, Xeon Phi)
  11. Optional: Optimise OpenCL projection algorithms.

We need to agree on new Milestones (possibly carry forward these) for next year, after 1 April 2017. This has involved about 0.75FTE - with a projected underspend of 0.45FTE – so recruitment is in process. (Note there was a 0.33FTE underspend last year). http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/AUP545/visualisation-scientist/

Reminder we are asked to collect statistics on training days/presentations by SCD/STFC staff and publications connected to SCD/STFC staff.

Possible Future actions to coordinate
