From the event website:

"Mathematicians have helped art historians and art conservators reconstruct the famous Mantegna frescos, shattered into thousands of fragments by WWII bombing. Algorithms have helped to identify "roll mates"--paintings whose canvases were cut from the same bolt--to remove virtually artifacts in preparation for a restoration campaign, and to reveal paintings hidden under visible works of art. This lecture will describe some of the mathematics that make these procedures possible."
