  General Information  ............

The US-Poland-Workshop on "Interfacial Phenomena and Advanced Materials" will be held in Gdansk, Poland on June 3-6, 2008.
The Workshop is a follow-up to and builds on a similar Workshop on "Nanoscience and Nano-Structured Materials" that was held in Poznan, Poland on June 26-28, 2006, at the Adam Mickiewicz University.
As before, the purpose of the present Workshop is to encourage closer scientific contacts and longer term scientific collaboration between researchers in this area between the U.S. and Poland. The Workshop will involve approximately 15 lecturers from the U.S. and 15 from Poland.
The Workshop lecturers will represent a broad spectrum of research interests, for example, soft and hard materials, bio-materials, polymers, polymerization, self assembly, complex fluids, microemulsions, surface science, interfacial phenomena, catalysis, colloids, adsorption, adhesion, rheology, computational nanoscience, and thin films.
The Workshop is intended to provide an effective forum or contacts between researchers from the US and Poland who are working in the area of Interfacial Phenomena and Advanced Materials. Invited lectuters will give 30 minute presentations. The invited speakers have been chosen to achieve a balance between theory and experiment.
The Workshop is addressed to younger Polish workers, including graduate students, who - despite attending lectures, will be invited to present posters. In addition, there will be a Panel Discussion at the end of the meeting to discuss the status of the field, future directions, and possible avenues for future US-Poland cooperation.

Gdansk, where the Conference will be held, is a city of more than half a million inhabitants, a strong economic, scientific and cultural centre locatedin the north of Poland, at the Baltic Sea (http://www.gdansk.pl/en/). With over a thousand years of history and its Hanseatic tradition, the city has always played a major role in the commercial relationships between the Northern and Western Europe on the one hand and the countries of the Central and Eastern Europe on the other. It is also the cradle of "Solidarity", Eastern Europe's first Independent Trade Union which triggered the historical changes in this part of the Continent in 1980.
