Soft Matter Colloquia & Café Meetings


Soft Matter Café are regular meetings of the ILL and ESRF soft matter scientists. During the first part of the meeting, updates on the PSCM are reported and news important to the soft matter community shared. In the second part 20' talks are given usually by two ILL and ESRF scientists working on the EPN Campus.

Soft Matter Colloquia are a series of seminars given by external speakers working in soft matter science. These seminars lasts 40'. 

The meetings take place more or less regularly every three weeks, at 15h00 on Thursdays, alternating between Café Meetings and Colloquia.

Coffee and biscuits will be offered at the end of each meeting.
