http://www.rsc.org/events/detail/27643/solid-state-group-christmas-meeting

The 37th RSC Solid State Group Christmas Meeting will be held at the University of Reading on 18th - 19th December 2017.

This meeting, which comprises oral presentations, a poster session and a conference dinner, will bring together academics, students and industrialists who are interested in the science and applications of solids. Our confirmed plenary speakers are Prof. Peter Bruce (Oxford), Prof. Nora de Leeuw (Cardiff), Prof. Antoine Maignan (CRISMAT, France) and Prof. Paul Wright (St Andrews). Information regarding registration, abstract submissions and the program will be available on the event website in due course.

India-UK Workshop on Thermoelectric Materials for Waste-Heat Harvesting

Bangalore, India, 8-10 January 2018

About the Workshop

The Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR, India) and the University of Reading (UK) are jointly organising an India-UK Workshop on Thermoelectric Materials for Waste-Heat Harvesting, to be held on 8-10 January 2018 in Bangalore. The workshop is part of the Newton Researcher Links Programme, jointly funded by the British Council and the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the event is also partially supported by the Sheikh Saqr Laboratory, ICMS, JNCASR.

Colloquia

Meetings will be held during Summer Term 2017 on Mondays in Lecture Theatre G at 15:45 (unless otherwise stated) preceded by tea in the foyer at 15.30. All are welcome. Talks usually last ca. 50 minutes, followed by discussion.
