As part of a grant received from The Royal Society to study the feasibility of using neural networks to improve resolution of MRS data using high resolution MRI, this workshop has been organised to disseminate and discuss new ideas and related research on the theme of reconstruction schemes for MR data.

We are in an era of digital revolution that is driving the development of new kinds of sensing, communication and information representation systems with demands of ever-increasing fidelity and resolution. This is commonly achieved by means of compressing or reducing in some way the information acquired. The high fidelity reconstruction of compressed and low-resolution signals has been one of the forefront areas of research nowadays. This half-day workshop will explore avenues to increase, by means of computational algorithms, the resolution of MR data.
