SPP 2171 Workshop "Wetting of Flexible, Adaptive, and Switchable Substrates" 2023

The workshop "Wetting of Flexible, Adaptive, and Switchable Substrates" of the SPP 2171 takes place from Dec 4th-7th 2023 in Berlin.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate the scientific exchange within the SPP, the internal presentation of the results achieved by each project and the planning of further collaborations. The workshop will feature sessions of short talks on SPP projects given by members of the SPP to communicate their central results. In addition, poster sessions will give room for more extended discussions and allow the participants to familiarise themselves with the work of the other groups.
Moreover, there will be selected keynote lectures by renowned external guest lecturers, who will present recent matters relevant to the SPP.

The conference aims to be an open platform for discussing subjects related to the themes of the Priority Programme 2171 and actively encourages junior researchers to be a part of this process.
