Particles 2013 - Particles in Composites and Advanced Materials
Frontier topics on nanoparticle and microparticle composite materials will be discussed over three days in a single oral track of 28 lectures. These lectures will provide basis for focusing on advanced composite materials design and fabrication with applications in advanced coatings, sealants, thermal and electrical conductivity, insulators, and advanced devices and sensors. The internationally reputed lecturers include top academic and government lab scientists and engineers, as well as entrepreneurs who have started their own successful companies. Pick up on cutting-edge technology and get some advice on how to succeed in small business innovation.
Prior to the start of Particles 2013, two one-day workshops will be presented:
1) Surface Modification Chemistries for Particles and Interfaces (Friday, 2 August 2013), [key to designing multiphase materials that will not suffer untoward phase separation or delamination]; and
2) Particle Characterization (Saturday, 3 August 2013).
