The next, 13th ELKIN Symposium will be hosted
by Martin Bazant at MIT, Boston, MA, USA
from June 12 to 14, 2019.

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 12th International Symposium on Electrokinetics to take place in Dresden, Germany from September 10 to 12, 2017.

The conference will cover recent progress in fundamental and applied research on Electrosurface Phenomena in Advanced Materials and Soft Matter, including

  • basic principles of electrokinetic phenomena
  • molecular theories
  • electrokinetic assembly
  • ion-specific effects in materials sciences
  • charge regulation, binding and electrokinetics in living matter
  • ionic transport in polyelectrolyte complex materials
  • advanced instrumentation and methods
  • electrokinetics in bioanalytical applications and bioseparation  

The technical program will be accompanied by an informal get together and by a conference dinner in the historical center of Dresden.

We are looking forward to an interdisciplinary conference with stimulating contributions from leading scientists in field and we would be delighted to welcome you in Dresden.
