LINXS Partner Event - All-day Symposium: Language technology in Medicine and Life sciences

In medicine and life sciences we are overloaded with different forms of text and speech. Texts in the form of electronic health records, genomic sequences, scientific articles, twitter feeds or patient questionnaires can be analysed to gain new scientific insights. Speech technology can be used in health apps and chatbots, to extract information from doctor-patient-dialogues or to direct medical robots. This workshop will cover the different application areas of language technology in medicine and life sciences as well as the methods used in this exciting and broad field.

Using neutrons in Archaeology, Geology and Cultural Heritage Studies: Neutron Imaging, Prompt Gamma Activation Analysis and Gamma Scan. Registration DEADLINE - June 1st

Lund Institute for advanced Neutron and X-Ray Science (LINXS) is planning a series of “tryout workshops”. The main idea is to give the opportunity to scientists in geology, archaeology and cultural heritage studies to bring their own samples and test different methods, types of radiation and instruments, before a full beam time proposal is written. Also, this would give scholars from different fields a possibility to meet, discuss and learn more about techniques soon available in Lund.

LINXS Event: Workshop for X-ray and neutron imaging applications in soil sciences

X-ray and neutron imaging provide opportunities to ‘see’ into generally opaque soil systems and have great potential to address important research questions in soil and, more generally, environmental sciences. Major challenges for humanity, such as climate change (CO2 storage) or food and water scarcity, could be tackled as a result.
