Modern parallel computer architectures are capable of processing huge amounts of data at high speed.Beginning of September, the European Doctoral Training Network „Smart Tomographic Sensors for Advanced Industrial Process Control" (TOMOCON) is going to be launched.Beside their academic research projects they will receive industrial training in various companies and attend three summer schools of the network", explains the project coordinator Professor Uwe Hampel from HZDR.Among the many imaging techniques tomographic ones are of highest interest for the industry, as they can provide insight into opaque systems in a contactless way.Just to name a few: How can we cope with aggressive process conditions and highest data rates?What does human-machine interaction in such systems look like?
