WASP Faculty and Industry Day May 16-17, 2018

 

The WASP Faculty Day on May 16 and the WASP Industry day on May 17 will take place at Skogshem & Wijk, Lidingö outside Stockholm ( http://www.skogshem-wijk.com/ ). On May 16 the focus is the university faculty and on May 17 the focus is the industrial perspective of WASP.

The program will give those of you that are new to WASP a better understanding of what WASP is and its long-term goals. Those of you that have been involved in WASP since the beginning will learn what is new, in particular related to WASP-AI. The program will also make it possible for you to give your input and suggestions for helping us to further improve WASP.

The program both days start at 10:00 and ends at 16:30. For those that stay over night at Skogshem & Wijk there is also a dinner on May 16 at 19:00. Some WASP clusters will organize cluster meetings that continue also after 16:30 on Wednesday 16.
