Spectroscopic approach to clay minerals

The workshop is intended for research workers and postgraduate students interested in the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary research area of clay mineralogy. The organisation of the workshop will be flexible enough to allow time for broad discussions, with lectures in the morning and informal presentations in the afternoons. There will be scheduled lectures, but also enough opportunity for everyone to outline briefly their field of interest.

Registration fees: students DM 50.- / academia DM 100.- / industrial participants DM 300.-

Information and registration form may be obtained from:
