Advanced Characterization and Modelling techniques for Colloids” 

2-3 September 2022, FORTH, Heraklion

Motivation: Properties of soft matter systems result from balance of different interactions acting on a range of length scales. Their proper characterization requires appropriate tools and techniques allied to pertinent interpretation. Techniques continuously evolve to adapt to the more challenging questions on more complex materials.  This short course aims to provide an up to date introduction to optical microscopy, scattering and rheometry as tools for characterization of soft materials and an introduction on the capabilities of numerical simulations for the microscopic understanding of the behavior, and the prediction of structure-property relations, of soft matter systems.

Venue and format: The Short Course will take place at the premises of the Polymer & Colloid Laboratory, at FORTH, in Heraklion. A hybrid format will be adopted, with 50 on-site participants and 20 online participants. The Course will consist of 4 half-day sessions and will include hands-on demonstration of experiments (microscopy, rheometry, scattering) and simulations.

Registration: You can register at the Short Course HERE: https://ecis2022.org/registration/short-course-registration/ . Note that due to their limited number, available positions will be filled in a “first come, first served” manner. Registration will close when all positions are filled.

Accommodation: Information about accommodation in Heraklion for the duration of the Short Course can be found HERE (https://ecis2022.org/practical-info/accommodation/). The participants that wish so, may book their accommodation through the Online Booking Platform.

Transportation: There will be a shuttle bus service from the center of Heraklion (Square of the “18 Agglon”, at the end of the 25th August Avenue) to the premises of FORTH at 08:20 in the morning of the 2nd and the 3rd of September and back to Heraklion center at 19:00 in the evening. The plan is to have a dinner on the 3rd of September for all participants and the necessary transportation will be organized as well. On the 4th of September at 10:00 in the morning there will be a transfer from Heraklion to Chania for those who will participate at the conference.   

The detailed Program-Syllabus can be found HERE.
Positions are limited to 50 onsite and 20 online participants. Registration will close when positions are filled.
