2nd Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics
2018-07-09 to 2018-07-13
Porto, Portugal

On behalf of the organizers, we would like to warmly invite you to attend the 2nd Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics to be held in Porto, Portugal during 9–13 July 2018. The second edition of the Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto from 9th to 13th July 2018.

The first edition was rather international and we sold out the 40 tickets available before reaching the deadline for registrations. So you better be quick if you want to get your seat next July 2018!

This course intends to provide cutting-edge knowledge on complex fluid-flow at microscale, from experimental and numerical perspectives during 5 days (6h/day), covering the following blocks/units:

Despite the program is not yet available in full detail, as we are still waiting for the confirmation of some speakers, we can confirm that each day will be fully dedicated to each unit, providing lectures during the morning sessions (3h) and lab-sessions after lunch (3h).

In this edition, lunches are included with the registration fee, as well as coffee breaks and 2 books:

Looking forward to meeting you in Porto next Summer." link

6th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S 2018) and 4th SPINTECH Technology Thesis Award

Kenting, Taiwan

Sensors are vital components of smart manufacturing, artificial Intelligence, Cyber–Physical System (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) for industry 4.0. For more advanced creations, biologists, engineers, physicists and chemists are all endeavoring to provide innovative technical sensors. This year, 2018, the well-known journal, Sensors, is going to hold the international conference in Kenting, which is located in the south of Taiwan—taking place in Asia for the first time. I3S embraces all professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss the latest developments and breakthroughs of sensor technology and related subjects. During the conference, attendees, from a range of research areas, will all gather together to share different aspects and establish new mutually beneficial collaborations across different fields.

We sincerely look forward to your participation in I3S2018. link
