Symposium 'Surfaces and Interfaces in Soft Matter and Biology'

   (see symposium website)


A symposium on "Surfaces and Interfaces in Soft Matter and Biology - The Impact and Future of Neutron Reflectivity" was held on 21-23 May at ILL in honour of Bob Thomas, who is due to retire this year. The symposium was organised jointly by ILL and ISIS and was attended by around 120 scientists from Europe and further afield. The event was a resounding success, with excellent international speakers, lively discussions and a host of new ideas. The quality of the speakers is testimony to their respect for Bob Thomas and the high degree of interest in the subject. Both Andrew Harrison and Andrew Taylor welcomed the participants. The after-dinner speech at the Château de la Commanderie was given by John White, former ILL director and Bob Thomas' s former tutor. 

Proceedings will be published in a special issue of Langmuir (deadline 31st August 2008)

A tour of the ILL reflectometers D17 and FIGARO was organised on the afternoon of 22 May.
