3rd ATTRACT TWD Symposium in Detection and Imaging (Tripolis)

Other Institutes

Other Institutes


Following the successful TWD Symposiums in Barcelona and in Strasbourg


the 3rd TWD focuses specifically on sensor-related data acquisition, computing, software and system integration.

The event will take place at the facilities of the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Peloponnese in Tripolis.

It seeks answers to the following questions: What new path breaking technologies or  concepts could be developed and used by 2025 for scientific instrumentation? What will they represent for industry, business and society?

The ATTRACT Consortium (www.attract-eu.org), in collaboration with ERDIT (http://erdit.eu/), EPS TIG  and University of Peloponnese, organizes this 3rd TWD Symposium to inspire new ideas, to help efforts for finding resources to fund new breakthrough ideas in detection and imaging.
