About the website

New website for the SFTE European Chapter

Due to some limitation regarding the old sites webserver, a new host was selected during the autumn 2010.
The website is now hosted at Bluehost.
The website is build with Drupal. Drupal is an open source content management platform for websites.

The new website is also using the new website address:

During some time both the old and the new site will co-exist. This is because some content is still on the old site only.

New function for symposium pictures

A new way to show pictures from symposiums is implemented.
The main functionality is that several thumbnail pictures are shown at the same time. When the user hovers the mouse over a thumbnail that picture will be shown in a large picture placeholder placed above the thumbnails.

Clicking on a thumbnail will open a large version of the pictures in a new window.

New webhost

Hopfully this change will be without notice for the visitors to this site.
This site is now hosted by
The change of webhotel was mainly driven by the lack of quick support from the previous host.

SFTE EC Webmaster

From 2006-04-13 I, Christian Buck, have taken on the task as webmaster for the SFTE EC site.

I am a long time member of SFTE and am glad to be able to help the society with my "hobby-skills" by running this site.

The former Webmaster, Erik Kullberg, started up the SFTE EC website and had it running from 2004-01-01.

Thanks to the excellent work that Erik Kullberg has put into this site - especially the things that happens in the background - there is a solid base to work from.

I will not just run the site as it was though. The site can and will be further improved and enhanced, to even more become the place for information about the society, upcoming events and a place to find papers, summery of past events and so on.

Please feel free to give suggestions, feedback and propose additional content to the website. Use the links found in the footer of alla the pages on the SFTE EC website.
