MARVEL Review and Retreat 2018

Sep 12, 2018, from 12:45 until 18:30, SwissTech Convention Center, EPFL

The fifth MARVEL Review and Retreat, gathering all MARVEL members, will take place just after the International Workshop on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials (COMDI 2018), on Wed. September 12, 2018 afternoon. For registering, please see the instructions below.

Everyone will gather at EPFL in the SwissTech Convention Center (STCC) just after the COMDI 2018, starting with a standing lunch and poster session which will be the key moment to look at the entire portfolio of ongoing MARVEL research activities.

The MARVEL Scientific Advisory Board and the MARVEL Industrial Advisory Board will participate to the Review and Retreat.


If you have registered to COMDI 2018, there is no need to register below.

If you are not attending COMDI 2018, but will attend this meeting, please register here by August 8, 2018 at latest.
