The school has ended ... thanks for coming!
2nd German-French Summer School on noncontact AFM
at the Universität Osnabrück (Germany)
After the splendid success of the 1st German-French Summer School on noncontact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) in 2013, a second event of this type is held on the campus of the Universität Osnabrück (map) from September 12th to 16th 2016. The venue is the Bohnenkamp Haus (map), a meeting center embedded in the spectacular green architecture of the university botanical garden and tropical greenhouse.
The Summer School is a joint initiative of the CINaM institute (Aix-Marseille University/CNRS) in Marseille (France) and the Universität Osnabrück (Germany) to create a platform for high level education and scientific exchange in NC-AFM research.
The Summer School offers both, an introduction into NC-AFM and related techniques (EFM, KPFM and MFM) as well as in-depth presentations on topics in advanced NC-AFM imaging and force mapping. The target audience are students and young researchers, and the aim is to bring together newcomers with experts for extensive discussions in a relaxing atmosphere. Post-docs and senior researchers entering the field or seeking for an expansion of their knowledge are equally welcome.
We strongly encourage PhD students to submit an abstract for a poster presentation to show their recent scientific results and participate in the competition for the 3 NC-AFM awards.
The summer school is funded by the German-French University (Deutsch-Französische Hochschule, Université Franco-Allemande).
