Time and Self-Management (May 28 & June 26, 2018)

Time-management is not something just theoretical: understanding the principles it is essential but the application to day by day life is what really matters. Therefore, this course is divided in two workshops separated by roughly a month. During the time in between you have the opportunity to try the techniques and principles you learned in the first workshop. In same cases it is just about observing your processes and behaviors with a new understanding. During the second workshop we will build upon your observations and experiences: Continue reading “Time and Self-Management (May 28 & June 26, 2018)”

Introduction to Calorimetry (June 27-28, 2018)

Aims

This module addresses doctoral students in chemistry, physics, biophysics, and related fields without much prior knowledge or experience in calorimetry. It introduces the basic theoretical and technical concepts necessary for an understanding of calorimetry in general and the application to polymer science in special.

Contents

Each day of the two-day program starts with a series of lectures in the morning covering the theoretical knowledge by basic lectures and the discussion of applications and problems. It is followed by hands-on experiments on typical polymer samples and demonstrations of the different calorimeter devices during the afternoon.

International summer school on “Thermodynamics and Energetics in Soft Matter Systems” July 24-26, 2018 at Grenoble

The international summer school on “Thermodynamics and Energetics in Soft Matter Systems”  will take place from the 24th to 26th July 2018 at the Institut Laue-Langevin, Grenoble, France.

The aim of the school is to provide an overview of the forces governing the behavior of soft matter systems and introducing the most relevant techniques to probe such interactions. The school proposes frontal lectures given by recognized experts from all over Europe. For full details see the flyer or the website: https://workshops.ill.fr/e/softmatter2018

Due to the limited number of available places, pre-registration by the 20th of May is required. A short description of research activity and a CV should be sent to softmatter2018@ill.fr The organising committee will examine your application and inform you in June 2018.
