The 3rd Playing Colloidal Mikado workshop will be held in Eindhoven, from 17-18 February 2016. It forms part of a series of workshops that bring together experimentalists and theoreticians working in the field of Soft Matter. The two previous workshops were held in Oxford (2009) and in Luxembourg (2010).

The 3rd Playing Colloidal Mikado workshop is organised and supported by DiStruc and its programme covers experimental, theoretical and computational aspects of non-spherical colloidal particles with a focus on colloidal rods. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss current developments and advances in the field and to provide opportunities for networking.  

We look forward to an exciting workshop and to welcoming you in Eindhoven. 


Registration fees: 65€ (Includes the Mikado dinner on Wednesday evening.)

Registration has been extended! New deadline is Sunday 31 January 2016.

**Limited places are available for graduate students and postdocs to attend a set of training lectures on selected topics within the field of Soft Condensed Matter. These will be held on Tuesday 16 February. Find out more here.
