Student workshop

It is our pleasure to invite all bachelor, master, PhD and graduate students for Student Workshop organized with connection to the 41st International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter and THz Waves. Student Workshop will take place on 24th and 25th September 2016 at the Technical University of Denmark.

The aim of the workshop is to give a comprehensive overview of few selected topics connected to infrared, millimeter and terahertz science and technology. During the workshop students will get familiar with such topics as THz time domain spectroscopy, THz communication, nonlinear THz optics, THz metamaterial, near-field imaging techniques and applications of infrared technology. We asked our speakers to give not only overview of current state of the art, but also their vision of future and the direction their research field is heading.  Attending this workshop can be helpful in understanding and taking active part in scientific presentations during IRMMW-THz conference.

You can sign for the workshop via the regular conference online registration process. An additional fee of 750 DKK will be added to your invoice to cover workshop costs. Workshop fee includes lunch and bus transportation between conference venue and the Technical University of Denmark both on 24 and 25th of September.

Registration deadline is September 1st 2016.

Public transportation to the student workshop

We have arranged a highly favorable price for unlimited transportation with public buses, metro and S-trains in the Copenhagen area for attendees of the IRMMW-THz 2016 conference. By purchasing a TravelPass in advance via the easy online ordering system, you will benefit from a greatly reduced fee (70% discount), uncomplicated access to public transportation from the moment you arrive in Copenhagen Airport, e.g. to the conference hotel, unlimited local public transportation during the conference.

Travel pass can be purchased using link:

DTU Lyngby Campus is located a mere 3 km from Lyngby train station and 15 km north of Copenhagen. Lyngby Station is a hub for S-trains and busses. Bus services with stops on Anker Engelunds Vej (the street with DTU’s main entrance) are busses no. 300S, 180E, 181E, 30E, and 190.
