Workshop comes to Trondheim again

We were once again lucky weather-wise during our 7th annual Workshop – not a matter of course in Trondheim – and the 93 participants spent a mostly sunny and warm three days at Clarion Hotel & Congress.

The conference this time comprised presentations from 9 invited speakers and 25 oral presentations from PhD and post doc participants, and the poster session consisted of 15 posters.
Our social event this year was a trip to Munkholmen on Tuesday, where an entertaining Abbot Bendik met us. A random card draw for the table seating made for interesting conversation, and the finale of the evening was a tour of the tower at the island.

 

 

Student awards

The finale of the workshop was the selection of the best posters and oral presentations.
The three members of the jury selecting the winners were Dag Werner Breiby, NTNU, Aasmund Sudbø, UoO, and Einar Halvorsen, HSN.

Winner of the student award for best poster presentation was Christian Bjørge Thoresen from HSN, with the presentation Modeling of capacitive touch screen panels for detection of ungrounded tangible objects.

The best oral presentation was given by Molly Bazilchuk, Dept. of Structural Engineering, NTNU. Her presentation was titled Squashing tiny balls: electromechanical characterization of particles for conductive adhesives.

Both won book gift certificates.
