Using MRI to Understand the Interplay Between Structure, Composition and Rheology in Complex Fluids
Guest talk by Melanie M. Britton (School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham)
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is widely used by chemists to acquire information on the structure, interactions and dynamics of molecules. When the NMR signal is acquired in the presence of magnetic field gradients, the variety of chemical and physical information available by NMR becomes spatially-dependent, resulting in images which map and quantify chemical composition, physical environment and molecular motion.

Towards a Rigorous Analysis of Basic Contact Line Models
Talk by Dr. Matthias Köhne (HHU Düsseldorf, Applied Analysis)

Singularities at soft elastic interfaces
Guest talk by Prof. Jacco Snoeijer (University of Twente)
Soft elastic interfaces exhibit intriguing similarities to liquid interfaces: they possess a surface tension and are susceptible to interfacial instabilities. The first part of this talk addresses wetting on such very soft substrates. It is shown that "soft wetting" fundamentally differs from the usual wetting on rigid surfaces. In the second part we discuss the formation of cusps and creases at elastic interfaces — and point out striking similarities with viscous cusps at liquid interfaces.

When surfaces matter: using nano-scaled surface features to control macro-scale transport
Talk by Gary Rosengarten (RMIT University)
Typical heat transfer correlations or surface property data assume that surfaces are smooth, or that they don’t effect transport properties such as convection or even radiation. However, nano-scaled features can have a massive effect on many transport properties- particularly those with free surfaces.
