The 2nd WECANet Annual Assembly from 28-29 November 2019 in Porto, Portugal
The Book of Abstracts is online and can be downloaded here.
The 2nd WECANet Annual Assembly took place at the University of Porto on 28-29 November 2019.
Prof. Francisco Taveira Pinto of 'Faculdade De Engenharia Da Universidade Do Porto (FEUP) was the local organizer and
Dr. Matt Folley was the Chair of this Assembly.
Each participant was expected to submit an abstract; the abstract should present and explain your perspective on the Working Group Topic that you have selected. This perspective should be focused towards identifying future activities that you and others may develop within and outside of the WECANet programme. The submitted abstracts will give WECANet an overview of how all participants of this year’s Assembly will contribute to the working group workshops and discussions. The abstracts were not followed by submission of full papers or presentations, but were published in the electronic Book of Abstracts of the Assembly.
STSM grantees and STSM hosts shortly presented the completed (in GP1) and planned (in GP2) STSMs during the Assembly.
Upon abstract acceptance and after the Assembly, participants received reimbursement of travel, accommodation and subsistence costs as defined by the COST rules and the WECANet budget plan for Grant Period 2 (GP2). Check 'Join WECANet and COST rules' here.
On 27 November 2019, the day before the WECANet Annual Assembly starts, a short course on 'Numerical coupling methodologies' was organised at Porto. The average reimbursement per trainee (10 trainees) was 200 EUR.
