Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy (BDS) is one of the most
versatile techniques to study the dynamics in complex systems because of its
wide spectral range, spanning more than 16 decades. Due to progress in
dielectric instrumentation, nowadays BDS has become a technique that is user
friendly and has widespread applications in physics, chemistry, electronics,
nanoscience, materials science, biophysics and biology.
The 2004 meeting in Delft will bring together scientists using
BDS in condensed matter physics, materials science, glass research, colloid and
polymer science, rheology and biophysics. The aim is to identify and discuss
generic issues related to dielectric relaxation phenomena for the purpose of
advancing our understanding of dielectric and related phenomena in complex
materials. Following the tradition of earlier successful DRP meetings and
previous conferences in
Jerusalem and Leipzig, we intend to make the Delft meeting a lively and
inspiring international discussion forum.
Style of the Conference
The program will consist of
plenary invited (~ 30 min.) and contributed lectures (~ 20 min.), as well as
poster sessions. An exhibition of state-of-the-art equipment and software is
planned, as well as a special oral
session "measurement forum" devoted to dielectric instrumentation.
The posters will be on display throughout the conference.
