Frontier of Interferometric Imaging from SKA to ngEHT


Computational imaging is a key process in radio and optical/near-infrared interferometry to reveal the fine views of the universe from observational data taken in Fourier space. Over the last decade, significant progress has been made in the development of new computational imaging techniques to address and overcome various challenges brought by the advent of the new instruments including the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), MeerKAT and Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI), as well as upgrades of existing facilities such as Very Large Array (VLA). Many algorithmic and data processing challenges arise in our quest to endow these instruments, set to observe the sky at new regimes of sensitivity and resolution, with their expected acute vision. In this new era, imaging encompasses not only forming 2D spatial maps of observed fields of view, but also the reconstruction of the spectrum, polarisation, and dynamics of the sources of interest, not to mention the mapping of underlying physical quantities. This focused session will gather interferometric imaging experts to review the exciting frontiers in the field.
