University of Warwick, 27th July 2017
The interaction of molecules with surfaces plays a crucial role in nanotechnology: not only is the great majority of nanodevices supported on a substrate, but surfaces have recently also emerged as the only environment where the synthesis of a wide class of new functional materials is possible. Moreover, the advanced analytical techniques available in nanoscience at surfaces offer the possibility to characterise complex molecular species with unprecedented ultrahigh resolution, overcoming traditional limitations of polydispersity, crystallisation, and sensitivity.
This symposium aims at bringing together leading international and UK experts in an unformal and stimulating environment to present recent advances in the field and encourage interdisciplinary discussion and collaborations. Early career researchers will be given the unique opportunity to showcase their research and to directly interact with international experts.
The Symposium will be held in the Materials and Analytical Science (MAS) building of the University of Warwick, room MAS2.06.
Parking can be found in one of the Pay and Display parking facilities which are clearly marked on this campus map.
Attendance at the symposium will be free of charge, but all participants are required to register in advance.
The organisers would like to thank the IOP and its Thin Films and Surfaces Group for their support.
