COMPLOIDS Summer School “Physics of Complex Colloids”, Varenna, July 3-13 2012
The Marie-Curie Initial Training Network COMPLOIDS (http://www.itn-comploids.eu), an academic consortium dedicated to research in colloidal science, is organizing the summer school “Physics of complex colloids”. The aim of the school is to cover the most exciting modern topics in the physics of colloids including colloidal interactions and phase diagrams, hydrodynamics in colloids, simulation techniques, colloidal arrested states of matter, structural investigations of colloids, synthesis, applications, non-equilibrium phenomena, and active Brownian motion. The minicourses discussing each of these topics will be complemented by specialized seminars focused on recent developments. Lecturers and speakers include P. Chaikin, M. Dijkstra, D. Frenkel, M. Fuchs, C. N. Likos, G. Naegele, R. Piazza, W. C. K. Poon, B. Vincent, C. Van den Broeck, E. Trizac, P. Vekilov, A. G. Yodh, and E. Zaccarelli,
The school will be held at the International School of Physics “Enrico Fermi” in Varenna, Italy, July 3-13 2012.
