February 9, 2014 @ 10:00 February 14, 2014 @ 15:00 CET

Reactivity of solids, Kinetics, Catalysis, Definitions and Applications of Chemical Sensors

9-14 February 2014 – Les Houches – Chamonix Valley, France

Develop your knowledge on chemical sensors systems and applications at the ISOCS Short Course in Les Houches (Chamonix Valley), France.

The venue is the Ecole de Physique des Houches, located closed to the ski slopes, and in the valley of Chamonix offering a closed access to many famous ski resorts. The price (795 €) includes all accommodation (single room) and meals. Students will receive free ISOCS membership for 2014.

Les Houches Physics School is affiliated with Université Joseph Fourier Grenoble I (UJF) and is funded by the UJF, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Direction des Sciences de la Matière of Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA/DSM). http://houches.ujf-grenoble.fr

Registration is closed!

Who should attend?

The Short Course is ideal for anyone with an interest in chemical sensors and olfaction, and is new to the field; for example, PhD students, researchers, technologists and industrialists.
Short Courses organized by ISOCS are a unique combination of fundamental theory lectures and practical application exercises. They provide a head start into selected topics of current research and new developments in the area of chemical sensing and olfaction. Most lecturers will be present throughout the duration of the course. Ample opportunity is given for discussion and networking.
