Programme

The IOP PAG tutorial day is aimed at Postgraduate Level students (Master/PhD). It is a half day event starting with lunch and followed by 3-4 talks each 45-1hr in length. The aim of the day is to inspire attendees with in-depth knowledge about physical acoustics by an engaging speaker. Each talk will present some basic tutorial information (15-30mins) about the speaker’s speciality/topic and will then also present the current state of the art in the field (15-30mins).

This year’s topic is “Materials characterisation using physical acoustics”.

Due to Covid-19 this year the event will be in the form of an online webinar rather than an in person event (in future, as soon as safe, we will revert back to meeting formats that enable personal contact) the draft programme is as follows:
