Materials for Information & Communication Technology Research in Cambridge

Date: 
Thursday, 19 September, 2019 - 09:00 to 16:45
Event Location: 

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge

Description

The development of new materials for ICT is fundamental to innovation and energy efficiency for applications in low‑power and high‑power facilities. Research across the University of Cambridge on materials for ICT is cross‑disciplinary and encompasses the development of devices for information processing, storage, and communication. This CAMatNet meeting on Materials for ICT brings together groups in Cambridge working on this theme with a series of invited talks by world-leading specialists, with the aim of inspiring new ideas and collaborations.

FAQs

Lunch:

Please let us know of any allergens or dietary requirements, particularly gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian or vegan.

Posters:

There is an opportunity to display posters during the day. If you wish to do so, please email the Group Administrators (tlb30@cam.ac.uk and nd241@cam.ac.uk) with a poster title. Poster size should be 117.5 cm x 83.5 cm, either landscape or portrait. (Posters will be displayed at MSM.)

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology is on the West Cambridge Site. There is no parking available on site. The Madingley Park and Ride car park is about a 10 minute walk away and the Universal bus that runs between Addenbrookes - the Town Centre - Madingley Park and Ride stops outside the department (Philippa Fawcett Drive), http://www.go-whippet.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/U-timetable-both-directions-A4-size.pdf
