Enrico Fermi Summer School
“Soft Matter Self-Assembly”
Varenna, June 28 - July 7 2015
ten-days summer school will be held June
28-July 7, 2015 at the International
School of Physics
"Enrico Fermi" in Varenna, Italy (http://www.sif.it/attivita/scuola_fermi).
Its primary aim is to cover the most exciting
modern aspects of self-assembly in soft
condensed matter physics. We would be delighted
if you could pass this information to your group
and to further interested colleagues.
The school will consist
of 9 mini-courses and 5 seminars.
covered by the mini-courses include:
Colloids with directional
bonding (David Pine, NYU)
self-organization (Christoph Dellago,
Particles at interfaces
(Kathleen Stebe, UPenn)
(Julia Yeomans, Oxford)
Driven self-assembly (Peter
dynamics (Michael Rubinstein, N.
dispersions (Randall Kamien, UPenn)
(Oleg Gang, Brookhaven)
nanosystems (Willem Kegel, Utrecht)
speakers are Gerhard Kahl, Sofia Kantorovich,
Christos Likos, Francesco Sciortino and Primoz
is aimed at PhD students and postdoctoral
fellows from the whole
world. Ideally, we would like to attract 60
students and we will do our best to
provide several student bursaries.
Courses will start on June 29 at 9.00 a.m. and finish on July 7 at
12.30 p.m. Sunday 28 is the arrival day.
