Program

The Third International Workshop on Thermoacoustics will take place on Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 October 2015. All individual contributions are scheduled as indicated below. Please note that at Monday afternoon, from 13:20 – 17:20, there are two parallel sessions.

The workshop will take place in building “The Gallery” at the campus of the University of Twente. The technical sessions are scheduled in the rooms “Reactor” and “Erlenmeyer”. Lunch will be served in the Grand Café in the same building.

The registration and welcome drinks on Sunday 25 October are located in Hotel Drienerburght, also located on the university grounds.

The conference dinner at Monday evening will take place in the soccer stadium of FC Twente, “De Grolsch Veste”. The stadium is located at a walking distance from the workshop venue, right behind the train station “Enschede Drienerlo”. A detailed map will be provided in the participants’ welcome package.
