|Event Name||18th International Symposium on the Reactivity of Solids|
|Start Date||9th Jun 2014|
|End Date||13th Jun 2014|
|Description||The scope of the symposium involves areas ranging from basic research to applied and material sciences, from aspects of technology, economy and ecology. The subjects discussed cover basic and applied aspects of new materials design, advanced methods of preparation and characterization, mechanisms of reactions involving solids, structure property relations, and new horizons of the materials application.
The aim of the symposium is to provide an opportunity to extend current knowledge, promote progress, and open up new vistas in the field.
Since 1948 a group of distinguished scientists from all over the world and from a wide range of fields gathered at the International Symposium on the Reactivity of Solids to discuss recent results and future experimental developments in the fields of the reactivity of solids. A characteristic feature of this symposium is that it is not a function of a particular society but is arranged by a local organizing committee, with input from many past attendees, and lives on the enthusiasm and on the scientific curiosity of a world-wide community. The flavor is distinctly international and decidedly interdisciplinary.
