Scope

We cordially invite you to workshop Innovative Surfaces and Materials organized within the context of the project Networks for professional training of young scientists in interdisciplinary research of innovative surfaces and materials (MIPoMat).

The workshop will take place from 28 until 31 August, 2016 at Hotel Zora, Primošten, Croatia.

The workshop is organized with objectives to bring together researchers – experimentalists and theorists from various areas of physics and chemistry who share a common interest in the study of the kinetics of heterogeneous processes, structural analysis, characterization of surfaces, organic synthesis, molecular modeling and application of absorption-emission spectra of biomolecules near the surfaces.

Promoting breakthrough of modeling molecular and nanostructures, to complex functional systems, this workshop aims to reach the sphere of applied research. Namely, synthesized targeted materials of advanced properties, fundamentally changed the world of electronics, optics and communications, and medical and pharmaceutical industries. Innovations starting at the atomic level affect the whole process of creating the material.

The properties of advanced materials are not only about the chemical nature of the atoms of which they are composed, but are primarily determined by their three-dimensional arrangement and layout within the microstructure of materials, including defects. Therefore, in this workshop all levels of the research chain are included, from design and synthesis of materials on the nanoscale, to modeling, structural characterization and possible manipulation.

Topics:

  • Organic/Inorganic Interfaces
  • Ionic Liquids
  • Computational Methods
  • Electronic Properties of Molecular Building Blocks
  • Functional Surfaces
