3Shape and DIKU celebrate the Ada Lovelace Day 2022
Join 3Shape and DIKU for an evening of exciting technology projects, STEM discussions, food, and drinks.

Do you want to spend a nice evening in company with some funky young (female) researchers and dedicated academics and professionals? Or are you simply curious about cutting edge research and development using 3D Modeling?

Whether you are a student, a professional working within the fields of R&D, a full time IT specialist, or just curious about the STEM agenda, you are most welcome. Participation is free of charge, but you need to sign up.

Time Agenda
16:00 - 16:30 Registration and mingling
16:30 - 16:45 Welcome by the hosts: Who was Ada Lovelace and why is she important still today ?
16:45 - 17:45

Three personal and scientific talks by young (female) researchers involved in the 3Shape/KU research project RAINBOW

Towards a Biomechanical Understanding of the Hip Joint -  Faezeh Moshfeghifar, Postdoc, DIKU

Predicting Tooth Motion from Physical Forces - Torkan Gholamalizadeh, Postdoc, 3Shape and DIKU

Title tba. - Renfei Liu, Researcher, Image Analysis, Computational Modelling and Geometry

17:45 - 18:00 3Shape use models of human physiology in R&D Peter Søndergaard, Software Group Manager, 3Shape
18:00 - 19:00 Food, drinks and open networking about how to spark more curiosity in STEM into the younger generations

Ada Lovelace Day is most often associated with raising awareness of women in STEM. However, Ada Lovelace represents more than the mere diversity agenda. Her legacy is a celebration of technology and curiosity in general. 

At this year's Ada Lovelace Day we celebrate curiosity and passion for SCIENCE and Technology. 3Shape and DIKU have joined forces to introduce you to a ground-breaking project about predicting biomechanical movements and designing tools using 3D modelling,  the Rainbow research project.

You can meet and talk to three young female researchers together with whom we shall explore areas of biomechanical movement analysis using 3D Scanners and Data Analysis. After the presentations, we will have an open discussion about how to spark more curiosity and interest in STEM into the younger generations.
