CTA Temático Workshop

March 5-6, 2018

São Paulo, Brazil



The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the members of the CTA FAPESP Tematico, in order to share scientific and technical knowledge. A general overview of the experiment status is going to be presented and the future activities of the group planned. The undergraduate and graduate students in the project are going to present the progress of their work. The time allocated for each presentation will allow a detailed discussion of the work, offering a unique opportunity for students to have a feedback on their work in a collaborative environment.
