The 2010 Monte Verita Workshop: Frontiers in Neuroengineering

Neuroengineering is a rapidly growing discipline that takes its lymph from
the increasing cross-fertilization of many areas of technology and science.
By means of neuroengineering, advances in diverse technologies and in cellular
and molecular biology converge into powerful tools to improve our understanding
and treatment of neural (dis)functions.
Recently such a discipline has gone beyond the concept of a simple application
of engineering principles to central nervous system (CNS) comprehension, leading
to the emergence of one of the more exciting interdisciplinary research fields
in modern neurosciences.

Neuroengineering applies novel approaches to the study of the brain by bringing
together tools from computational neuroscience, information theory, electronics,
electrophysiology, biomaterials, nanotechnologies and tissue engineering, towards
understanding, repairing, replacing, enhancing, and exploiting the electrical
properties of the nervous system.

Multiphase Polymers and Polymer Composites

Workshop and Training School
7 – 10 June 2011, Paris, France

This workshop and training school will be dedicated to many of the recent technical research accomplishments in the area of physical and interfacial properties of multiphase polymer systems(Composites, Blends, IPNs, Gels etc) in a fairly comprehensive manner. The content of the proposed workshop and training school is unique due to the fact that it will focus on many issues related to the interfacial aspects of multiphase polymer systems with special reference to the length scale (macro, micro and nano) of the minor component in the system. It will cover an up to date record on the major findings and observations in the field of morphological, interfacial physical and thermophysical properties of multiphase polymer systems from macro to nano lenth scales.
