Symposium Polymer Physics

When:Fr 29-11-2013 10:00 - 18:00
Where:Chemistry and Physics building, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG Groningen - lecture hall 5111.0080

On November 29 the Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry at the University of Groningen will be organizing a symposium on Polymer Physics at the occasion of the retirement of Professor Gerrit ten Brinke. Below you can find the detailed program with speakers Profs Janne Ruokolainen, Igal Szleifer, Igor Erukhimovich, Georges Hadziioannou and Olli Ikkala.

If you wish to attend the symposium, please inform Karin Woudstra ( Please indicate whether you will join us for the entire program so we are able to make sufficient lunch arrangements.

The meeting will be held at the Chemistry and Physics building, Nijenborgh 4, 9747 AG Groningen. We hope to welcome many of you, so that together we can make it a memorable event for Gerrit.

Please feel free to forward this message to any of your colleagues who may be interested in joining us as well. For further information please contact Karin (
