                         User Meeting 2009 (click to the picture for full format image):


The annual SkyScan User Meeting took place in Ghent / Belgium from the 22nd till the 24th of April. This year over 75 participants were coming  in “Het Pand” - an old Dominican monastery located in the heart of the city of Ghent, now congress center. Over 40 presentations with a high scientific level made this meeting a great success.

This year’s winners of the best presentation, poster and picture were:

1.       Greet Kerckhofs, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium.

2.       Anne Brinkmann, University of Giessen, Germany.

3.       Claudia R. Schneider, University of Giessen, Germany.


We thank all presenters and participants for their great contribution.
