Summer School on Preparative Strategies in Solid State and Materials Chemistry
The International Center for Materials Research (ICMR) at UC Santa Barbara will hold a Summer School on the Preparative Strategies in Solid State and Materials Chemistry from August 8-21, 2010 at UCSB. The school is aimed at future leaders of Materials Science: proponents of the idea that selection of materials for specific functions should depend solely on which material is optimal, rather than on what the investigator is familiar with. Candidate attendees are students close to finishing their PhD, and whose research involves materials preparation. In addition, candidates for the school are expected to display a strong curiousity into materials classes that may lie outside their domain of familiarity.
