2nd Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics

when 9 July 2018 - 13 July 2018
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 450

The second edition of the Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto from 9th to 13th July 2018.

The first edition was rather international and we sold out the 40 tickets available before reaching the deadline for registrations. So you better be quick if you want to get your seat next July 2018!

The same scheme will be repeated, i.e. again 5 days (6h/day), and it will be mainly oriented to PhD students and researchers, having the same blocks/units:

09/07/2018 - Complex fluids and rheometry at microscale
10/07/2018 - Microfabrication techniques of microfluidics devices
11/07/2018 - Fluid-Flow characterization in microfluidics
12/07/2018 - Numerical simulations of complex fluid-flows at microscales
13/07/2018 - Numerical optimization in microfluidics
Despite the program is not yet available in full detail, as we are still waiting for the confirmation of some speakers, we can confirm that each day will be fully dedicated to each unit, providing lectures during the morning sessions (3h) and lab-sessions after lunch (3h).

In this edition, lunches are included with the registration fee, as well as coffee breaks and 2 books:

"Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics"
"Applied Rheology - With Joe Flow on Rheology Road"

Course leader

Francisco J. Galindo Rosales

Target group

PhD students and researchers working with complex fluids, microfluidics or a combination of both, either from experimental or numerical perspectives

Course aim

Provide cutting-edge information about experimental and numerical techniques to lead microfluidic projects to success
