FMS Research Center

FMS Annual Meeting 2014

Sunday 16 November 2014
NH Conference Center Koningshof
Veldhoven, The Netherlands



The FMS Annual Meeting brings together faculty, PhD students, and postdocs working in the participating groups of the FMS Research Center to share the latest developments and breakthroughs of their research. The aim of this event is to stimulate discussion and interaction between members of the FMS groups, with the intention to further strengthen the collaborations and joined efforts leading to outstanding research.
Taking in consideration that most of the FMS members will attend CHAINS in Veldhoven, for convenience we have decided to hold this first FMS Annual Meeting one day before CHAINS and in the same location.
