Summer school Freezing and Interfaces (Cargèse, May 1-5, 2023)

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to organize a Thematic Summer School named Freezing & Interfaces which will take place in Cargèse, Corsica, on May 1-5, 2023.

The objective of this school is to present the fundamentals, the latest theoretical advances and experimental activities in the field of ice formation in capillary systems (drop, film, foam, porous media) and heterogeneous mixtures (solution, suspension, emulsion, granular).

The list of lectures and speakers is as follows:

– Freezing of solutions and formation of sea ice, with Grae Worster, DAMTP, Cambridge (4h)

– Freezing of suspensions and emulsions, with Sylvain Deville, Institut Lumière Matière, Lyon (4h)

– Freezing of soil and geomorphology, with Alan Rempel, University of Oregon (4h)

– Surface of ice and ice wetting, with Daniel Bonn, Institute of Physics, University of Amsterdam (4h)

– Formation of snow crystals, with Kenneth Libbrecht, Caltech (4h)

– Ice accretion in aeronautics, with Claire Laurent & Pierre Trontin, Onera, Toulouse (4h).

Participants will have the opportunity to present their work during two poster sessions.

More information can be found on the website of the conference:

Registration for the school is open and needs to be done on the dedicated webpage :

Places will be limited to 80 participants. The registration deadline is March 10, 2023

ICR – Rheology of living and active systems (Athens, Jul29-Aug4 2023)

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to our session on the « Rheology of living and active systems » at the 19th International Congress on Rheology to be held from July 29th to August 4th, 2023, in Athens Greece.

This session deals with rheological effects of living systems, such as bacterial colonies, or synthetic microswimmers, either in bulk or at interfaces. This includes both measurements and predictions of the rheological properties of such systems. We are particularly excited about the potential to deepen connections between the fields of biology, « active » matter, and rheology—whose intersection represents an important frontier for our field—through this session.

The submission deadline is January 10, 2023 and further details are available here.
