NMR MRI Diffusion Symposium
9th (biennial) Western Sydney University & Inaugural Asian Symposium on NMR, MRI & Diffusion
When: 3rd December, 2020
TIme: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Where: Western Sydney University, Campbelltown
Venue: Lecture Theatre (TBA)
Audience: Registration is open to all and will be available after August 2020
This, the 9th WSU Symposium was originally planned to be a 2 day extravaganza of talks, workshops, an evening networking event and an optional day tour of the highlights of Sydney and surrounds, and, for the first time it would be co-hosted by the Nanoscale Research Group, WSU and the Taiwan Magnetic Resonance Society, Taiwan, BUT, COVID-19 happened and our vision shrank.
The 9th WSU Symposium will now be held on the 3rd December 2020 followed by an evening networking event at Rydges Campbelltown. The talks will be held on the WSU campus at Campbelltown with the international speakers presenting by ZOOM but we expect that domestic speakers will be able to present in person.
A ZOOM link will be provided closer to the day for anyone who cannot attend but would like to participate and we will be holding our Student Poster competition as usual.
