Porto, Portugal

On behalf of the organizers, we would like to warmly invite you to attend the 2nd Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics to be held in Porto, Portugal during 9–13 July 2018. The second edition of the Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto from 9th to 13th July 2018.

The first edition was rather international and we sold out the 40 tickets available before reaching the deadline for registrations. So you better be quick if you want to get your seat next July 2018!

This course intends to provide cutting-edge knowledge on complex fluid-flow at microscale, from experimental and numerical perspectives during 5 days (6h/day), covering the following blocks/units:

  • 09/07/2018 - Complex fluids and rheometry at microscale
  • 10/07/2018 - Microfabrication techniques of microfluidics devices
  • 11/07/2018 - Fluid-Flow characterization in microfluidics
  • 12/07/2018 - Numerical simulations of complex fluid-flows at microscales
  • 13/07/2018 - Numerical optimization in microfluidics

Despite the program is not yet available in full detail, as we are still waiting for the confirmation of some speakers, we can confirm that each day will be fully dedicated to each unit, providing lectures during the morning sessions (3h) and lab-sessions after lunch (3h).

In this edition, lunches are included with the registration fee, as well as coffee breaks and 2 books:

Looking forward to meeting you in Porto next Summer."

30 July–4 August 2018 43rd International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC 2018)

Sendai, Japan

We are pleased to announce that the 43rd International Conference on Coordination Chemistry (ICCC 2018) will be held during July 30 to August 4, 2018 in Sendai, Japan. Since the beginning of ICCC in 1950, it has been a highly active and the largest venue for exchange of the latest knowledge concerning coordination chemistry and related areas among researchers from all over the world. Coordination chemistry has expanded into a huge multidisciplinary research area involving large numbers of chemists, physicists, biologists and medicinal scientists. Japanese societies have been contributing extensively to its development. It is thus our great pleasureto take this third opportunity to organize ICCC in Japan, and to be able to welcome many excellent researchers in all areas of coordination chemistry. We anticipate fruitful discussions on the latest topics during several plenary, keynote, and invited lectures, contributed talks, and poster presentations. In addition, there will be pre- and post-conferences for young researchers (“Rising Star Symposium”) and senior researchers. Sendai, the venue for the ICCC 2018, is the largest city in the northeast part of Japan. At the seaside, Matsushima bay is known as one of the most beautiful view point in Japan. There are many famous temples in the mountains, including the world heritage site Hiraizumi. We welcome all of you to visit us in Sendai and look forward to letting you excited with the beauty of northeastern Japan.
