2nd Batch Kick-Off and Winter Conference 2018

Welcome to Lund and the kick-off for the new WASP PhD students and the Winter Conference 2018! The purpose of the kick-off is to introduce new students and their supervisors to WASP and the different parts of the research program. The purpose of the Winter Conference is for PhD students to present your work and to get constructive feedback on it in a friendly environment.

WASP PhD students (academic, affiliated and industrial) from the first batch should prepare a 5 minute presentation and a poster about their work.

Dates

  • 2nd Batch Kick-off, January 8-9
  • Winter Conference, January 9-10

Venue

  • M-huset, LTH (Faculty of Engineering)
    Ole Römersväg 1, Lund

Note!! Due to renovations the entrance from Ole Römers väg might be closed (this is the entrance from the East where the parking lot and the taxi stand are). In this case you need to go around the building to the Western entrance. If you arrive by walking from downtown this is the natural entrance. It is also here where the foyer with the registration is.

How to get there

To make your way from the railway station to the Department of Automatic Control you can take a taxi (RD taxi +46 46 300300), or a local bus (n°1 from the railway station – get off at stop: Professorsgatan – or take a walk through Lund centre and university area (approximately 20 minute walk). Public transport: Skånetrafiken. Additional travel-related information and about how to get to the M-building can be found here.
