Dear E-LASS member,

Our recent E-LASS event was very successful, organized in Piteå jointly with the EU project RAMSSES.
Between 70-80 persons attended the event in the cold north and participated in our and RAMSSES joint activities, including a much appreciated tour on board the ice breaker ‘Arctic Explorer’. You can find a full summary of the event on our website, including presentations from the seminar day.

Our next E-LASS event will be arranged in Vigo, Spain, again jointly with the RAMSSES project. The details are still discussed but make sure to keep your calendar open for June 11-14 and we will get back to you with more information in the coming months. Apart from what will hopefully be a very interesting seminar day and industry
tour, the event also marks a milestone for our community as it will be our 10th E-LASS meeting together.
Save the date!

Finally, I would like to invite all of you to the LIGHTer International Conference taking place 20-21 November 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
