HetSys Summer Conference 2020


The event will be combined with an online preview for the ‘Exploiting Machine Learning in Multiscale Modelling of Materials’ conference which was originally planned to take place this summer but which has been delayed to 29-31 March 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The programme includes 3 science highlight talks focussing on the ‘high-performance alloys’ research theme, as well poster presentations from the first HetSys cohort and an overview of upcoming HetSys PhD projects. For industrial and academics partners, there will be also be an opportunity to discuss PhD projects for 2021. The tentative schedule is provided below.
