Functional Materials Far From Equilibrium (GW4)

Organized by Dr. Nicolas Dirr

Cardiff will be hosting the third meeting of the GW4 initiative 'Functional materials far from equilibrium’  on 7 January 2015.
This activity is an interdisciplinary initiative between materials science, mechanics, physics and mathematics, aiming at establishing new collaborations across the GW4 universities.

The meeting will take place on 7 January in the Cardiff School of Mathematics in Senghennydd Road, Cardiff, in lecture theatre M/0.40 (ground floor) from 10 am-5 pm
and will aim to identify common interests and facilitate interaction on functional materials across the GW4 universities.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend.
Please register at by Monday 22nd December 2014. There is NO registration fee, but we need accurate numbers for catering.
