Céad Míle Fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) to Dublin, Ireland’s capital city, steeped in history and fuelled by youthful energy. We will introduce you to the highlights of our famous city which has been shaped over 1,200 years. Always characterised by a strong scientific and engineering bias, in 2012 Dublin is honoured to be designated the European City of Science, where creativity and great science meet.
SmartSurfaces2012: From Light to Life is a unique conference, bringing together leading scientists and engineers from around the world to discuss the latest advances in surfaces for application in solar and biosensor technologies. Surfaces underpin these key technologies and the highly productive multidisciplinary approach to surface research is the impetus for this focal conference. The ability to manipulate surfaces offers the possibility of tailoring devices for current engineering and scientific needs and of producing new materials to meet challenges in the energy and biomedical fields.
Plenary lectures from eminent international scientists will be among the highlights of the scientific program. The cross-cutting expertise of these experts will perfectly complement parallel sessions in surfaces for sensors and solar cells.
We invite you to join us for SmartSurfaces 2012 and look forward to seeing you in Dublin in March.
