Micro Materials Annual Conference and User Workshop
Registration is now open for Micro Materials 2019 Conference, which will be kindly hosted by the UK’s National Centre for Advanced Tribology (nCATS) at the University of Southampton.
Micro Materials Conferences are a unique opportunity to speak to and learn from our applications experts as well as our users from all over Europe, enabling you to expand your knowledge of nano-mechanical testing and get more out of your instrument.
Who should attend?
- anyone involved in the study, development or research of materials and coatings at the nano-scale
- those interested in nano and micro scale tribology
- prospective users who wish to discover more about how nano-mechanical testing can assist them in their research and development
Monday 16th December – afternoon workshop (start 14.15) for new users and those interested in updating their practical knowledge and learning about the latest product developments.
The workshop will include a tour of nCATS facilities, including the NanoTest instruments . The conference dinner will be held on Monday evening.
Tuesday 17th December – conference (start 09.15, finish 16.00)
The event is free to attend and includes dinner on the 16th Dec. Accommodation booking information is on the registration form and further travel details will be supplied upon registration.
