The 14th Zsigmondy Colloquium of the German Colloid Society will take place in Mainz from 9 – 11 April 2018.
Properties of surfaces and interfaces: modification, characterization and application
The annual Zsigmondy Colloquium of the German Colloidal Society is aiming at young researchers in the field of colloid, surface and interface science. PhD students and postdocs are particularly invited to present their research as oral presentations or poster contributions. The meeting intends to provide a platform for a stimulating dialogue between researchers from universities, other research institutions and industry.
- Surfaces and their modifications
Adaptive and reactive surfaces, grafted systems, 3D printing, physical surface modification, 2D materials, surface-sensitive experimental techniques, soft surfaces
