General FANTOM Study Week on Photon Science
Groningen, the Netherlands, 5-8 November 2012
Announcement of the week:
The 37th general FANTOM study week will be held from Monday 5 until Thursday 8 November 2012 in Groningen, the Netherlands. The general topic of this study week will be: "Photon science".
Laboratory visitOn Wednesday evening, there will be a visit to the Department of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging and the Department of Radiotherapy of the University Medical Centre Groningen (which is next to the study-week accommodation; see below).
During the week, there will be project sessions related to the topic of the week. On Thursday, the participants will present the results of their project assignments.
Participants are invited to present their work in oral presentations of 15 minutes each. The goal of these presentations is to give students the possibility to present their work to an audience of their peers. This will provide an important opportunity to get useful feedback on both the contents of the talk and the way the talk is presented, which will help to improve the quality of future presentations. Participants are therefore strongly advised to make use of this opportunity. If you wish to give an oral presentation, please inform the FANTOM secretary Amarins Petitiaux (address see below) before 1 October, and send her the title and an abstract of your presentation before 15 October 2012.
The lectures will start Monday morning 5 November and will end Thursday afternoon 8 November.
The study week will be held in NH Hotel Groningen, which is near the Groningen city centre and next to the University Medical Centre Groningen.
The study week in Groningen is meant for FANTOM PhD students, but others who are interested are also welcome. We ask you to kindly inform those people at (or outside) your institute who might be interested in this study week.
The participants are required to pay a fee that includes lunches, dinners and copies of lecture notes etc. and accommodation costs. The exact amount of the fee will be determined afterwards, so that all the real costs can be incorporated, and invoices will be sent to the home institutes of the participants.
