The 34th CREST Open Workshop

CREST Annual Review

 

Date:  19 - 20 May 2014

Venue: Engineering Front Executive Suite, Roberts Building, UCL (Directions, or 'C5' on the map here, or Find it on Google maps.)

Overview:

This workshop will present a review of recent research undertaken in CREST. Each post-doctoral researcher and PhD student in CREST will present a short (20 minute) talk, highlighting recent research results. There will be plenty of time for discussion, as with all of our COWs. Though all talks at this workshop will be given by members of the CREST centre, we very much welcome members of the research community outside CREST to register and attend the workshop. We always welcome feedback on our work. This workshop will also provide an opportunity  to explore possible collaborations, both within CREST and also between CREST and others who attend the workshop.
