Welcoming words

Welcome to Oulu and ICFUTURE2020 conference!

I have a pleasure to introduce you the ICFUTURE2020 — International Conference on Imaging and Characterization — Future Technologies and Applications. ICFUTURE2020 conference brings together scientists and experts in technology development to form a broad view over the number of topics and to induce exciting new ideas via multidisciplinary collaboration. The conference covers the multitude of topics with a common theme in Imaging and Characterization: research on atmosphere and environment, materials and processes, bio and medical sciences with technology development and even with the present advances in industry.

Research and innovations rooted at the University of Oulu in wide international collaboration network are changing and shaping the world. About 2.6 billion people worldwide use daily technology developed in Oulu. Major innovations are based on multidisciplinary high-level research — Fact applies also in imaging and characterization and brings us together in ICFUTURE2020.

The conference is organized as a part of the I4Future — Imaging for the Future: Novel Imaging and Characterization Methods in Bio, Medical and Environmental Research and Technology Innovations doctoral programme. I4Future is an EU Horizon2020 co-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie action international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral doctoral programme hosted by University of Oulu.

The international conference takes place in Oulu, at hotel Lasaretti in the middle of the Finnish winter. We warmly welcome all participants, exhibitors and sponsors to enjoy the recent advances in imaging and characterization! Hopefully you will also experience the “Arctic attitude” of the University of Oulu.


On behalf of the organizing and program committees,

Marko Huttula, Chair of the conference
