Co-Chairperson: Henry R. Busby, The Ohio State University
Co-Chairperson: Lijia Guo, The Ohio State University

This Program is jointly sponsored by these units of the Ohio State University:

The Seventh Inverse Problems in Engineering Seminar will explore a wide range of inverse problems, from theory and methods to specific applications in manufacturing and research. The contributed paper are selected from across the United States as well as overseas.

As in past years, the transparencies used in the presentations will be collected and reproduced in a notebook proceedings. The volume will be delivered to the registrants free of charge.
