Course announcement: “Dispersions and Emulsions: Formation, Stabilisation and Characterisation”
Date: April 10-12, 2018.
Venue: Het Pand – Ghent, Belgium.
In this 3 day course we will give a good overview of the fundamentals of colloid chemistry, covering steric & electrostatic stabilisation and flocculation by polymers & polyelectrolytes. Beyond the colloid theory, we will also go through the practical aspects of dispersing/emulsification technology, including the choice of dispersants, surfactants and emulsifier agents. The course will also cover the most recent characterisation methods and instruments, including particle sizing, zeta-potential and rheology measurements.
An update of the program and practical information can be found on Courses page.
Symposium announcement: “Ultra Clean Processing of Semiconductor Surfaces (UCPSS)”
Date: September 2-5, 2018.
Venue: KU Leuven Hallen – Leuven, Belgium.
The goal of the UCPSS symposium is to increase the level of understanding on ultra-clean processing and surface preparation technology in all steps of the fabrication of ICs, PV-modules and bioelectronics devices. The conference consists of invited presentations, as well as selected contributing presentations and posters. More information can be found here.
