Registration to the symposium through e-lomake

Students who want credits should register through WebOodi

To obtain credits, students should register via WebOodi using the Enrol-link.

Presentation (4.3.2020) and attendance on both days of the symposium (5.-6.3.2020) are required for credits (2 cr). During the first day, the students will familiarize themselves with the contents of the symposium through presentations of their own imaging projects or journal club. The exact format and length of the presentation will depend on the participant number. For students outside of University of Helsinki, it is possible to obtain a certificate of attendance.
