Bookmark and Share

An advanced 3-day GdRi workshop on materials for energy and the environment, organized by Micromeritics Instrument Corporation, the Joint CNRS-MIT laboratory <MSE>2, and the International Research Network M2UN, will take place August 26 – 28, 2015 on the MIT campus in Boston.With a theme of “Multiscale Porosity from Laboratory to Industrial Application,” this workshop is ideal for scientists and engineers who research or develop products and processes involving porous materials

The workshop provides:

  • Lectures by international experts about multi-scale porosity, pore mechanics and materials for energy and the environment, including Micromeritics’ very own Jacek Jagiello 
  • An informal environment that promotes a comfortable and stimulating exchange of knowledge and ideas among participants
    Attendees may contribute to the workshop by submitting a ½ page abstract, title, and form of contribution (oral/poster) to Roland Pellenq (pellenq@mit.edu) and Jeff Kenvin (jeff.kenvin@micromeritics.com) by July 10th.
    In addition to the workshop itself, manuscripts will be published in a special issue of the ASCE Journal Nano and Micro Mechanics, which highlights the science and application of nanoscale and nanostructured materials. The submission deadline for a manuscript in this special issue is September 15th. 

    This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the field and gain a better understanding of others’ work as well as your own. The deadline to register for the workshop is August 17th.
