Particle-Based Materials Symposium 2020

Event date: October 22, 2020

The Particle-Based Materials Symposium is a small workshop (50-100 participants) that has, in the last 4 years, brought together (mainly) young scientists and engineers from different communities that all share the goal of creating functionality in materials using particles.

This year, a strong focus will be on applications of particle-based materials and on the extension of our Network over Europe and the World.

Like many other scientific conferences, the PBM Symposium, which has been held annually at different research locations in Germany so far, will be organized virtually this year. It will take place as a zoom meeting on October 22 between 8:50 am and 1:30 pm CEST. Participation is free of charge.


To register, please send an email to Mrs. Hartmann will send you the access link in time.
