International Conference : P.-G. de Gennes’s scientific legacy

International  Conference
 
P.-G. de Gennes’s scientific legacy: a source of inspiration for the future.
 
Paris, November 23 and 24, 2021
This November, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pierre-Gilles de Gennes’ Nobel Prize in Physics. On this occasion, we organize a 2-day international conference to celebrate de Gennes’ scientific legacy. The idea is to show the relevance of this legacy for today’s research, and how it constitutes a source of inspiration for the future.
The conference will take place in Paris, November 23 and 24, 2021.
Registration is now open: https://degenneslegacy.sciencesconf.org/
Due to the limited availability of seats, early registration is strongly recommended to ensure your participation.
Hoping to see you there!

Winter school « multiscale approaches and multiphysics couplings in fluid and solid mechanics »

Tec 21 Winter school on « Multi scale approaches and multiphysics couplings in fluid and solid mechanics » (5th Edition)
Grenoble – 31st January to 4th February 2022

Important societal issues require to solve problems of increasing complexity. A key vector of progress relies on multi-scale and multi-physics approaches. The objective of the winter school is to review the different approaches, numerical and experimental techniques to tackle the complexity of today’s engineering problems. All the courses are illustrated through various up-to-date examples. Two days are devoted to practical laboratory work on «high-tech demonstrators» , combining experiments and numerical modeling. The last day of the school is dedicated to a particular theme. This year this day will be dedicated to « mechanics at the nanoscale ».

• Web Page: https://www.tec21.fr/winter-school-2022/

The number of participants is limited and registrations are subject to availability. Registration deadline: 31st December 2021.

ON-LINE Workshop « New Challenges in Polyelectrolyte Science »
16-17th June 2021


Science of charged polymers or polyelectrolytes presents a number of challenges,
despite the progress made in the field over the past 50-60 years. In this workshop we wish to
bring together the communities of polymer physics and physical chemistry, linking both
experimental and modelling (theory, simulation) approaches. Our interest lies
in bridging the atomic/molecular scale phenomena, where the chemical nature of monomers
and surrounding ions plays an important role, to larger scales where approaches based
on scaling theory are commonly used. A multi-scale description of polyelectrolyte systems,
concerning their phase behaviour as well as structural and dynamic properties, is far from
established. It deserves particular attention, in view of the ever increasing number
of polyelectrolyte systems under complex environments (at interfaces, under confinement)
or of advanced properties (stimuli-responsive systems, different types of phoretic transport).
