2nd International Advanced Course on Liquid Interfaces, Drops and Sprays (LIDESP)
After the great success of the First LIDESP Advanced Course in May 2014, the second edition was held again at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Center of Smart Interfaces from 19th to 22nd May 2015, in collaboration with the DFG Collaborative Research Center SFB-TRR 75 – Droplet Dynamics under Extreme Ambient Conditions.
International Course Directors:
- Prof. Alidad Amirfazli, York University, Toronto (Canada)
- Dr. Volfango Bertola, University of Liverpool (UK)
- Prof. Marco Marengo, University of Brighton (UK)

- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernhard Weigand, Institute of Aerospace Thermodynamics at the University of Stuttgart
The knowledge of the physics of liquid drops and sprays is essential for many applications, from aeronautics (icing) to oil extraction (effervescent spray, drop collisions in pipes), from electronics (spray cooling) to agriculture (pesticide distribution), from microfluidics (droplet management) to painting processes (spray coating), from biology (blood droplets, sterilization) to thermal transfer (condensation in heat exchangers), from chemistry (drying tower) to medical applications.
The course objective is to provide the participants with detailed, up-to-date knowledge on the physics of drops and sprays based on recent research results and the most updated methods for the prediction of dynamic outcomes, heat transfer, wettability effects, and its applications to technological and industrial areas.
Who should attend?
The course is addressed to scientists, professionals, company engineers, R&D managers and graduate students in the fields of Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Applied and Fundamental Sciences. This course is especially of interest to those dealing with phenomena involving drops and sprays, in order to get acquainted with the traditional background and the most recent developments of the discipline.
Discount for IACIS 2015 participants
This edition of the LIDESP Advanced Course is organised in partnership with the 15th Conference of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Scientists (IACIS2015), held in Mainz (Germany) from 24th to 29th May 2015, just after the Course. Participants who register for both events will receive a 100 Euro discount on the LIDESP Course registration fee.
