8th Annual Triangle Soft Matter Workshop
Monday, May 9, 2016
7:15 am - 4:15 pm
Fitzpatrick Center Schiciano Auditorium
Plenary Speaker Mark Hillmyer, University of Wisconsin
The goal of this workshop is to spark interactions and collaborations between the research groups in the Triangle area. The workshop format is very informal, and an emphasis is placed on spurring conversations between researchers in all areas of soft matter research. "Soft matter" here is defined very broadly, and it includes (but is not limited to) work in polymers, colloid science, synthetic and naturally occurring biomaterials, and condensed matter physics. In addition to the invited talks, the agenda includes alternating soundbite(i.e., 2 mins oral overview of a project - used to advertise a research project and a poster)and poster sessions to facilitate interactions.
