An advanced three-day GdRi workshop on materials for energy and the environment, organized by Micromeritics Instrument Corp., the Joint CNRS-MIT laboratory, MSE2, and the International Research Network, M2UN, will take place August 26–28, 2015 on the MIT campus in Boston.
With a theme of “Multiscale Porosity from Laboratory to Industrial Application,” this workshop is designed for scientists and engineers who research or develop products and processes involving porous materials
The workshop provides:
• Lectures by international experts about multi-scale porosity, pore mechanics, and materials for energy and the environment, including Micromeritics’ Jacek Jagiello
• An informal environment that promotes a comfortable and stimulating exchange of knowledge and ideas among participants
Attendees may contribute to the workshop by submitting a half-page abstract, title, and form of contribution (oral/poster) to Roland Pellenq ([email protected]) and Jeff Kenvin ([email protected]) by July 10.
In addition to the workshop, manuscripts will be published in a special issue of the ASCE Journal Nano and Micro Mechanics, which highlights the science and application of nanoscale and nanostructured materials. The submission deadline for a manuscript is September 15.
This workshop is an opportunity to learn more about the field and gain a better understanding of others’ work. The deadline to register for the workshop is August 17.
