ESOF 2016, the seventh pan-European conference dedicated to scientific research and innovation, will take place from 23-27 July 2016 in Manchester, UK.
The aim of this School is to provide a comprehensive foundation for researchers in the field of soft matter liquids and complex fluids. The lectures will introduce key topics of current interest together with the theoretical, experimental and computer simulation approaches used to address them. The School is directed towards postgraduate students from a wide range of backgrounds including physics, chemistry, chemical engineering and biophysics and abstract submissions were recently opened.
Biology is a place where two major themes that currently lie at the frontier of condensed matter physics converge: first, the idea that “more is different” – that is, that interactions in complex systems at one scale lead to fundamentally new emergent principles at a larger scale – and second that a proper understanding nonequilibrium fluctuations is crucial for scientific progress.
The 42nd Annual IOP Spring Conference on Plasma Physics will run from 30 March to 2 April at the Kents Hill Park Training and Conference Centre in Milton Keynes and will cover all disciplines including Magnetic and Inertial confinement fusion, Astrophysical Plasmas and Low Density and Technological/Industrial Plasmas to name a few.
“Accelerators: powering cutting-edge research” is a booklet, prepared by the Science and Technology Facilities Council in collaboration with the Institute of Physics and the Cockcroft Institute. It explains what a particle accelerator does and examines its many different uses, from medical treatments to environmental impact.
The meeting “Magnetic Resonance and Muons – A Complementary View of Materials” will take place on 15 December 2014 at the Institute of Physics [IOP], 28 Portland Place, London, UK….
The IOP run a Topical Research Meeting once a year and the 2014 event will be held in Nottingham, UK, from 16 to 18 December.
This meeting will cover all aspects of hybrid quantum systems involving atoms, light and matter. It will link theory to experiment, ranging from fundamental physics to the development of new quantum device concepts and technologies. The invited speakers are leading researchers in hybrid quantum systems.
Dr. Frances Saunders took up her position as president of the Institute of Physics [IOP] on 1 October 2013, succeeding Sir Peter Knight. Dr Frances Saunders is the second female president of the IOP, after Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell (2008-2010, and 2011 ad interim). She will serve as IOP president until 30 September 2015.
F. Saunders is a research scientist in liquid crystal devices at the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment. She was Policy officer at the former Office of Science and Technology. From 2007 to 2012, she was the first female chief executive…
