The Student Conference in Science and Technology 2023

The conferece took place at Ångström on Monday, October 16 13:15 - 15:00 in Sonja Lyttkens and Heinz-Otto Kreiss rooms. 

Two student presentations were rewarded a prize for best presentation:

Erik Bashore, Master student in Physics

Anna af Klercker, Bachelor student in Biology.

More information and abstracts in the program. You can watch some of the presentations:


Ralph Scheicher, Dept of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University
Nanopores - bridging life sciences and nanotechnology

Imagine pulling DNA through a nanometer-sized opening! Imagine reading its letters, A, C, G, T, as they zip through that tiny hole! Imagine thus sequencing an entire human genome within a few hours! - You can stop imagining now. This is real and I will talk about it.  

Fiona Skerman Dept of Mathematics, Uppsala University
Communicty Structure in Networks - with an interlude on random graphics

We take a look at the graph theory behind the most commonly used community detection algorithms for large network data sets.
