Workshop on

"Polymer adsorption and recognition processes"

Universität Bielefeld
Fakultät für Physik, D5-153

February 26, 2004

Aim and scope

The workshop's intention is to discuss current contributions in the field of theoretical polymer physics with respect to the physics of molecular recognition processes. Our initiative is to bring together a group of interested people, organize a series of presentations and encourage discussions in an informal, casual and "interactive" format that fosters and facilitates a fruitful dialogue across different approaches.
