Conference overview


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.
