There will be a COMSOL and a CST computer simulation workshops. The workshops run on Tuesday 1st Sept. and Thursday 3rd Sept respectively.

Workshop 1: ”Modelling Of Metamaterials In Comsol Multiphysics”

Modelling has never been easier - or more powerful - than what COMSOL Multiphysics offers you today; this demo shows you why. Your COMSOL Multiphysics tutor will lead you through the work flow and within minutes you will bring designs to life with multiphysics simulations. Real-life case studies will be presented and you will be given the opportunity to build your first model.
