EPSRC Teranet Terahertz Roadmap Conference

EPSRC Teranet Terahertz Roadmap Conference

Monday, 10 July, 2017 - 10:30 to Tuesday, 11 July, 2017 - 16:00

The EPSRC Network Teranet, in conjunction with the EPSRC Network eFutures are hosting a meeting on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 July 2017 at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton.  The topic will be a series of talks and discussions around the recently published 2017 Roadmap for Terahertz Science and Technology, which Teranet co-ordinated.

There will be a wide range of talks from the Roadmap’s authors, and the chance for networking over dinner and at poster sessions.  Bringing a poster is not mandatory, but if you would like to publicise your work and/or you group, the opportunity will be available.  We will begin at 11:00 on the 10th July, with the networking dinner on that night, and then have further talks all day on the 11th July concluding at 16:30.  Accommodation on the night of the 10th July will be provided at the hotel, paid for on your behalf by Teranet.  Additional night’s accommodation either side of the 10th July is subject to availability and need to be requested and booked separately with the hotel direct.    

Our meeting is fully funded by EPSRC, and we can also pay your (standard class) travel expenses by reimbursement after the event.  You are welcome to bring along any PDRAs or colleagues who you think will be interested to contribute to the meeting.  Please note that we are unable to reimburse travel expenses for PhD students, by EPSRC’s rules, though they are welcome to attend the meeting.  We also have a small Seedcorn fund available for new collaborations which results from the meeting.

If you are interested in attending the event please complete the very short online registration form available at http://tinyurl.com/m85g57g.  Please note, places are strictly restricted to a maximum of 100 and will be filled on a first come first served basis, so it is advisable to book as soon as possible if you would like to attend.  The deadline for registration is Friday 5th May 2017.
