Professor and IPrime Director Chris Macosko is organizing an upcoming Golden Gate Polymer Forum (GGPF) three-day short course on the rheology of polymers, dispersions and gels.
The course will be held in Mountain View, CA July 13 to 15. It is designed to give practicing engineers and chemists an understanding of rheology fundamentals, principles of measurements, and applications to practical problem solving.
* THE NEXT COURSE WILL BE OFFERED SUMMER 2013 *
July 13-15, 2011
Offered by IPrime's Nanostructural Materials and Processes Program in Keller Hall 3-180 on the University of Minnesota's East Bank Campus.
Coordinator: Professor and NMP Program Leader Alon McCormick
This short course will enable industrial and academic scientists and engineers, with no prior knowledge of electron microscopy, to gain insight into cryo-techniques to image nanostructures in liquids, soft materials, and biological systems.
IPrime's CPF program is offering its annual short course May 24 - 26, 2011. Registration is now open. The IPrime Annual Meeting will be held the following week.
The course is designed for engineers who are engaged in coating and who seek a deeper understanding of processes and processing problems. It is also relevant to physical scientists concerned with the formulation of coating liquids for process-ability and microstructure development.
The next Rheological Measurements Short Course will be held June 10-15, 2012. The course was not be available in 2011.
September 11, 2010
A one day short course focused on premetered coating, multilayer coating and solidification phenomena. A lab tour is included. Held on the University's Minneapolis Campus prior to the beginning of the ISCST Symposium.
The next Rheological Measurements Short Course will be held June 10-15, 2012.
June 8-13, 2010
An intensive short course designed to give practicing engineers and chemists an understanding of rheology fundamentals, principles of measurements, and applications to problem solving. Again this year: condensed four-day course (with optional Sunday evening and Friday morning sessions).
The next Coating Process Fundamentals Short Course will be held May 24 - 26, 2011.
June 8 -10, 2010
This 3-day course covers fundamentals from liquid coating flows and application methods to solid coating development. The course is taught by a team of University and industrial lecturers. Lab tours and a complete set of notes are included.
Two one-and-a-half day installments:
June 7-8 & July 29-30, 2010
This course is intended to enable industrial and academic scientists and engineers with no prior knowledge of electron microscopy to gain insight into cryotechniques to image nanostructures in liquids, soft materials, and biological systems. After attending the course you will be better able to assess what experiments are feasible for samples of interest to you, and to estimate the benefits and costs of these approaches.
