On the second day, the Laser and Synchrotron Research (LASOR) Center members gave their presentations and hosted a lab tour to the LASOR Center. Very active discussion was also held on the future development of the exchange program, including the acceptance of NTU students at ISSP. So far, the program has revolved mainly around research collaborations.
