Advances in Terahertz Spectrometry and Other Spectroscopy Symposium 5/21/11-5/23/11

Call for Abstracts
42nd Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting (MARM), May 21?23, 2011

A new addition to the MARM is a symposium on Advances in Terahertz Spectrometry and Other
Spectroscopy and their applications in analytical techniques, pharmaceuticals,
biomedical, conservation science, forensic science, security technology,
geology, and other applications.

This symposium presents a valuable opportunity for the exchange of knowledge, including discussions of development of current and break through terahertz techniques and their applications. Contributions addressing subjects pertaining,
but are not limited to, the above mentioned areas are solicited. Papers
including any spectroscopic techniques in solving important problems are also
welcome.

The 42nd Middle Atlantic Regional meeting (MARM 2011) will be hosted by the American Chemical Society District of Columbia Section at the
University of Maryland College Park campus. MARM 2011 is co-sponsored by several
ACS regional sections including the Southeastern Pennsylvania section of the
American Chemical Society (SEPSACS).

See details: http://www.marmacs.org/2011/index.html

Early submissions are welcome and encouraged.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
