This is the second announcement for the meeting:"Surfaces and Interfaces
in Soft Matter and Biology : the impact and future of neutron
reflectivity-A Symposium in Honor of Robert K. Thomas" jointly organised
by ISIS (STFC, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK) and the Institut
Laue-Langevin (Grenoble, France). The meeting will take place at the ILL
on21-23 May 2008.
The development of new instrumentation and sources at the ILL, ISIS and
elsewhere heralds exciting new opportunities to further expand the
application of the technique in the broad areas of Soft Matter and
Biology. The 3 day symposium is aimed at exploring the new horizons that
these developments will enable. The symposium will include sessions on
surfactants, polymers, mixtures at air/liquid and solid/liquid
interfaces, biosurfaces and interfaces, liquid-liquid interfaces,
polymer films, complementary techniques, with an emphasis on future
directions and developments.
The proceedings of the meeting will be published as a special edition of
Langmuir (editor Robert L. Rowell).
