ACIS Symposium on Nanobubbles

Wednesday 4th December 2013

Lecture theatre 2, School of Chemistry,
The University of Sydney

 

On December 4th, 2013 The University of Sydney will host the “ACIS Symposium on Nanobubbles”. This multidisciplinary symposium, supported by the Australasian Colloids and Interface Society (ACIS), will focus on recent developments in the understanding of nanobubble formation, stability and characterisation, with connections to experiments and applications. The symposium will bring together chemists, mathematicians, physicists and engineers at the forefront of research in interface science, soft matter, and atomic force microscopy. The program will consist of three invited speakers and a panel discussion.

The Australasian Colloids and Interface Society was established in 2012 as an inclusive organization to bring together everyone in Australia and New Zealand (and beyond) who is interested in colloid and interfacial science, engineering and technology. This half-day symposium will provide an environment for the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods on nanobubbles within the colloids and interface science community.

Registration

Registration for the symposium is free for ACIS members, but for catering purposes members should email Dr Chiara Neto chiara.neto@sydney.edu.au, specifying if they wish to attend the dinner in the evening. A registration fee of $50 will be charged for non-members. To join ACIS (membership is $100 for academics, $50 for students), please visit the webpage http://colloid-oz.org.au/ To register for the symposium as a non-member, please press continue at the bottom of the page. For additional information, please contact Dr Chiara Neto, chiara.neto@sydney.edu.au.
