Dear colleagues,
registration is open to the "European School on Interfacial Engineering - Fundamentals, Applications, and Analytical Methods" to be held April 3-6, 2017, at the Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow, Poland. The School is devoted to the  discussion of analytical methods and data analysis flavoured by selected topics of Colloids and Interface Science.
Interfacial regions between bulk media, although often comprising only a fraction of the material present, are frequently the site of reactions and phenomena that dominate the macroscopic properties of the entire system. Hence, the understanding of the self-organization of molecules at interfaces and their corresponding static and dynamic properties defines a central theme of Colloids and Interface Science. To study such properties powerful analytical tools are available namely linear and nonlinear optical reflection techniques, X-ray and neutron scattering and scanning probe techniques. Unfortunately, presentations at international conferences provide at most overviews of applications of scientific methods, but do not allow a meaningful in-depth discussion of the particular experimental and theoretical background. Textbook provide sound information, but there is a lag time between the development of new methods and their incorporation in textbooks and University courses.
The European School on Interfacial Engineering will bridge this gap and is designed for motivated PhD students and Post-doc in the field of Colloid and Interface science. The major objective is to discuss modern surface analytical tools that increased our understanding of fluid interfaces. Selected surface analytical tools are presented in tutorial review style by scientists using these techniques in their daily research. The information is then discussed and deepened in small workgroups on the basis of problem sheets. The interaction and active discussion of the participants is a crucial element of our workshop.

Registration to attend this school is open with deadline March 20., 2017 at the web page


Invited lecturers are Debora Berti (University of Florence), Michal Borkovec (University Geneva), Jean Daiilant (SOLEIL), Wuge Briscoe (Bristol University), Ger Koper (Delft University of Technology), Hubert Motschmann (University of Regensburg), Georg Papastavrou (University of Bayreuth), Francesca Ravera (ICMATE), Piotr Warszynski (Jerzy Haber Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry).

With best regards,
Thomas Gutberlet
