The mathematics of Inverse Problems is what brigs these things together and at a meeting at the University of Manchester 15-19 June 2009 mathematicians, physicians, geophysicists and biologists studying weakly electric fish come together. Hopefully sharing information between these communities will lead to breakthroughs in all of these fields.
On Thursday the 18th June 12-1pm (BST) a lecture by Prof Mark Nelson "Electrosensory data acquisition and signal processing strategies in electric fish" will be video-streamed for all to see. Link is here.

As the fish are the real experts the School of Mathematics has temporarily set up its own aquarium of weakly electric fish. Details here (including live "fish cam")
We are in the news.
