Title Thoughts on discretization and tropicalization
Abstract Discretization and tropicalization are two important procedures in contemporary mathematics. I will present them briefly and motivate why they are important. Discrete objects, like carpets and mosaics, have been around for thousands of years, but the advent of computers and digital cameras has made them ubiquitous. Tropical mathematics is by comparison a relatively new branch of mathematics. I shall compare the two and pose a philosophical/mathematical problem in relation to them.

Title Pose tracking of magnetic objects
Abstract In this talk, magnetic tracking is presented. This technique is based on a sensor network of multiple magnetometers measuring the induced magnetic field from magnetic objects. This enables three-dimensional interaction with computer programs that cannot be handled with other localization techniques. I will show some applications within this area which have been realized as a part of my research.
