02/2018 - UNSW SSF 2018

The School of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney (UNSW) is organising “The Annual Summer School on Ferroelectrics (UNSW SSF 2018)” from February 5-9, 2018

For information on this summer school, please visit: http://www.unsw-ssf.unsw.edu.au

The UNSW-SSF ‘18 aims at attracting PhD students, undergraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, young scientists and senior researchers working in the field of ferroelectrics for five days in the vibrant city of Sydney, to build up future Asia-Pacific ferroelectrics community. The school will focus on fundamental science, as well as cutting edge and emerging applications. It will cover basic concepts of ferroelectricity, intended for researchers and students who are new to the field, and gradually move towards advanced concepts. Fundamental notions of ferroelectricity, piezoelectricity, and multiferroics will be covered, followed by more specific topics such as thin films, interfaces, domain walls and key advanced characterization and computational techniques. To assist participant learning, laboratory demonstrations and experiments will constitute approximately 30% of the content. Finally, networking opportunities will be offered through a range of social activities, including a welcome reception and trivia night.

The registration is open now. Please visit the website to register. Early application is strongly advised as attendance is strictly limited.

Deadline: 15 December 2017.

If you need a visa to visit Australia, we recommend that you apply for it at your earliest convenience.
