TOSCA 2014: Tomography for Scientific Advancement Symposium

Tomography for Scientific Advancement Symposium

The Tomography for Scientific Advancement Symposium (TOSCA) will be taking place at the Natural History Museum in London on 1st-3rd September 2014.

Bruker microCT will be sponsoring the symposium. Bruker Applications Scientist Frederik Coppens will be presenting a talk about microCT materials science applications.

The annual Tomography for Scientific Advancement (ToScA) symposium is in affiliation with the Royal Microscopy Society. Following on from the success of last year’s symposium, a third day has been added to programme to allow more in-depth coverage.

During the three days, international speakers will present cutting-edge research talks on a wide range of CT applications and techniques. There will also be  poster presentations, an image competition, an award ceremony and a conference dinner in a unique setting under the museum’s most famous resident, ‘Dippy’ the Diplodocus.

Don’t miss Frederick Coppens’ talk “Conventional vs. dual energy microCT scanning: enhancement of material contrast” on Monday 1st September at 2:30pm!
