New Interfaces in Interface Science
Interfaces provide the spatial boundaries between different systems and play a pivotal role in the nanosciences. In addition, interface science itself provides many exciting interfaces between different disciplines. The latter interfaces act to "nucleate" new and exciting research topics at the cutting edge. The Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces has been rather successful to identify these innovative topics and to bring them into the focus of the whole scientific community.
This symposium will celebrate the 70th birthday of Helmuth Möhwald, one of the founding directors of the institute. The symposium will assemble prominent scientists to discuss hot topics and to foster new ideas and co-operations at the forefront of colloid and interface science.
