The Radon Institute of Computational and Applied Mathematics in Linz, Austria, is organizing a conference on the 100th anniversary of the publication of the famous paper “Über die Bestimmung von Funktionen durch ihre Integralwerte längs gewisser Mannigfaltigkeiten” in Berichte über die Verhandlungen der Königlich-Sächsischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften zu Leipzig. Mathematisch-Physische Klasse, Band 69, 1917, Seiten 262–277, of the name giver of the institute, Johann Radon.

The conference will take place from March, 27th to March, 31st, 2017 at Johannes Kepler University of Linz.


The conference provides an historical exposition of the field of Radon transforms as well as highlighting recent trends.
