  • Fundamental aspects of positron and positronium chemistry (interaction of e+ and Ps with atoms, molecules or solid matter, Ps formation etc.)
  • Polymers and soft matter
  • Liquids and multiphase systems
  • Surfaces, interfaces, membranes and layered structures
  • Porous materials, nanostructured and confined systems
  • Materials for industrial applications (nuclear, hydrogen energy technology etc.)
  • Other non-metallic solids
  • Biological and medical applications of e+ and Ps (e.g. Positron Emission Tomography)
  • Advances in experimental techniques, including positron beams

First Announcement

Second Announcement

4th July 2017

You can find up-to-date information in the Second Announcement. The draft scientific programme with links to the abstracts is available and will be updated according to the latest information. Participants are asked to verify whether description of their presentation/poster is correct and complete.

It is still possible to register for poster presentation or as an accompanying person.

Contest for the best poster

2nd August 2017
