4th Workshop on Functional Materials
Synthesis and Characterisation of Mesoscalic Systems

Geesthacht, April 5-6, 2001

General Information:

This workshop seeks to bring together scientists from a wide range of scientific fields who have an interest in research on the synthesis and characterisation of mesoscalic systems. The purpose of the meeting is to promote the interaction of scientists working on manufactoring of mesoscalic systems such as colloids, micelles, membranes, liquid crystals and thin films. Furthermore we wish to bring together the expertise in the field of characterisation by means of different techniques such as neutron and X-ray scattering, chemical analysis and modelling and to provide a forum for discussion of further scientific programs.

Scientific Program:

The workshop is planned for approximately 20 lecturing participants and an open audience. The time for the contributions is limited to 30 respectively 15 minutes talks. An intensive discussion is welcome. Since the number of lectures is limited we encourage poster contributions especially by young scientists. There will be a poster award (DM 250.00) for the best presentation.
