    Zoom out: The Faculty of Engineering’s Annual Conference

    The Faculty of Engineering’s annual conference was held in late September at Kfar Blum. The conference was created to have our members meet and get together in a more informal setting: researchers, faculty, advanced degree students, and lab workers, as well as post-doctoral students and guest lecturers from abroad. “After two difficult years, this was an opportunity for us to get to know one another, talk about our research, present posters, and exchange opinions – face to face instead of screen-to-screen,” says Dr. Boris Desiatov who organized the conference along with Dr. Gonen Zinger. In addition to hiking the green north, the conference included lectures, workshops, and poster displays. Post-doctoral student Kavita Sharma and PhD student Alex Glicky Gabai were awarded Best Poster Prize during the conference.
