Program & Speakers

Invited Speakers

The conference will be opened with a plenary lecture on the topic Electrokinetic Control of Interfacial Instabilities at the evening of September 10, 2017. The lecture will be given by Prof. Martin Bazant from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.  

The technical program on September 11-12, 2017 consists of invited keynote lectures and contributed talks.

In addition, two rapid-fire short communications sessions have been included, where selected contributions (to which also posters are shown) are presented in three minutes. After these sessions, these contributions as well as a number of further posters can be discussed in poster sessions combined with lunch. 

Monday: Rapid-fire short communications and posters on the topics "Basic principles of electrokinetic phenomena" and "Molecular theories"
Tuesday: Rapid-fire short communications and posters on all the other topics
