ECIS Training Course

Using thermodynamics in characterization: From colloids and self-assembled systems to biological macromolecules.

Join us before the Conference


A pre-conference ECIS Training Course "Using thermodynamics in characterization: From colloids and self-assembled systems to biological macromolecules" will be held at Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Večna pot 113. Ljubljana. Due to limited space in laboratories, the number of participants will be limited to 30.

You can reach the venue by walk in about 30 minutes from the city center or take the bus number 18 (get off at station “ZOO”). For using Ljubljana Public Transport, Urbana Card is needed.
