The Impact and Future of Scattering Techniques in Soft Matter: 18th – 19th March at Keble College, Oxford, UK

Scattering methods have evolved in both complexity and in application over the past 30 years. The aim of this two day conference is to show how increasingly complex chemical, magnetic and biological systems demand a multi-technique approach in order to derive a full description of their behaviour. The meeting is combined with the 2013 Sir Eric Rideal lecture given by the award recipient, Prof. Jeff Penfold.

Confirmed speakers include: R. K. Thomas, T. Zemb, A. R. Rennie, I. M. Tucker, J. T. Petkov, L. Porcar, G. Fragnetto, I. Grillo, D. Barlow, A. Zarbakhsh, J. Penfold and T. Arnold.

We are looking forward to a lively programme of talks, posters and an exhibition showcasing some of the latest equipment relevant to soft matter research. Delegate registration also includes a Gala Dinner in the traditional dining hall of Keble College; a true Oxford experience.

The organising committee would like to thank our generous sponsors STFC (ISIS), Unilever, Malvern Instruments, Biolin Scientific, Diamond Light Source, IOP Neutron Scattering Group and the Joint Colloids Group.

Full details of the conference and the online registration process can be found here. You can also read more about the conference on the Colloid Group website.
