Science Conference of the School of Science
The annual Science Conference of the School of Science brings together students and researchers. Traditionally, the conference starts with two plenary lectures given by eminent persons (academicians, national research awards laureates, honorary doctors of TalTech), followed by shorter presentations by researchers of the School.
The aim of the conference is to introduce the research topics of the School to a wider audience. Everyone interested in science is welcome.
The Science Conference has been held since 2008.
