ECMM Summer school in Physics

From July 10th to 12th, 2018

Application deadline: June 11th, 2018

Contact: ecmm@univ-paris-diderot.fr


The aim of this summer school on "elaboration and characterization of multistructured materials" is intended to multidisciplinary scientific community with enhanced exchanges between high level senior scientists, young researchers and industrial partners. It is an opportunity to give a global overview of elaboration and multiscale characterization of multistructured materials found in many domains (civil engineering, aeronautics, energy, nano-materials, cosmetic, foods, living world for a few examples) at the frontier of several disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, applied mathematics, chemical engineering…).

The summer school will focus on elaboration as well as study at different scales of thermo-mechanical properties and structure of complex multi-component systems from polymers, colloids, nanoparticles, dispersed media, nanocomposites, with some degree of self-organization, a high sensitivity to external fields and specific dynamical properties.

This summer school will be held at Université Paris Diderot (France).

Dates: July 10th to 12th, 2018




  • Hybrid organic-inorganic materials
  • Physics of soft matter, dispersed materials, nanocomposites, biogels
  • Thermal investigation, rheology, microrheology
  • Dynamic light scattering, microscopy, velocimetry, laser and Brillouin spectroscopy
  • Statistics and numerical analysis applied to the study of materials
