WORKSHOP: Wave physics and imaging applications

You are invited to join our full day in-person workshop on all things wave physics, wave propagation, and imaging across a range of applications to support and initiate research exchange.

The workshop takes place Friday 20 May 2022 at the University of Helsinki, Exactum, CK112, 09:00 - 17:00.

We appreciate if you indicate your interest to attend by completing this e-form to help us assess the catering needs, but registering is not mandatory.

We kindly ask you to consider to wear face masks in the auditorium to help confining the spread of recent flu cases.

Questions to speakers and comments for future collaboration can be added to Flinga.
