International symposium on macroporous materials: From novel preparation strategies to advanced applications les 12 & 13 septembre 2016

EXTENDED DEADLINE for registration and poster submission:

 UNTIL SEPTEMBER 5 for the upcoming Macroporous Materials Symposium on 12-13th of September 2016 in Paris (Université Pierre et Marie Curie).

The registration is free of charge and can be done on the Symposium website, where you find further information and the full program.

The MacroMat Symposium will gather leading scientists from different domains focusing on the recent advances in the synthesis, characterization, and application of macroporous materials. The Symposium comprises 11 invited talks and a poster session at the end of the first day during a social event for all attendees.
