UCLA-IPAM-NSF workshop on Thin Films and Fluid Interfaces

January 30-February 2, 2006

This workshop brings together an international group of researchers working on experimental, analytical, and computational problems related to thin films and fluid interfaces. Problems of current interest include solid-liquid-vapor interfaces, moving contact lines, and surface tension effects. The workshop will be held at UCLA's Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics and organized through the University of California, Los Angeles, Department of Mathematics . Funding for this workshop is made possible through an NSF Focussed Research Group effort. Students and postdocs are encouraged to attend and to contact one of the conference organizers if they are interested.
