The sixth annual workshop for CLT members will take place at Nääs Fabriker, Tollered, 20-22 October. The workshop comprises of presentations of new projects, new post-doctoral researchers, new PhD students, and a series of talks given by invited speakers. The afternoons are devoted to poster and demonstration sessions presented by CLT members.

We will leave by bus from Carlandersplatsen/Lundgrensgatan (map) at 11.00 on Tuesday, and expect to be back in Gothenburg by 14.00 on Thursday.
