Spring School Program

March 10 & 11: Coor Hall, room 170

Co-chairmen: Gyula Eres and Pawel Hawrylak
The spring school will feature tutorial lectures by leading industrial researchers and noted university professors focusing on current scientific and technological challenges. The School is a part of the NGC2014 Conference and is followed by the three-days Symposium. All registered participants of the NGC2014 conference are automatically entitled to participate in the School. The school is also open to local students in Arizona and is offered without any fee through the kind support and encouragement of the conference organizers and sponsors. Registration is, however, required. Please register at the School Registration Page.
Registered school participants are also welcome to attend the Poster Session on Thursday, March 13, from 6 to 9 pm.
Breakfasts, lunches and refreshments are available free for school participants at the school venue (Coor Hall, room 170) due to the support of the sponsors of the RuSciTech Forum USA 2014 and food is also free to them at the Poster Session venue (Memorial Union, 2nd floor, Ventana Ballroom, #241C) due to the support of Bio Logic.
Registration fee for participation at the symposium (school sessions included) has been reduced for Arizona State University students to the early registration fee (150 US dollars) due to the the support from ASU Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development. For further details, please, visit Registration Page.
