  • Prof. Dimos Poulikakos, ETH Zurich, The Quest for Intrinsically Icephobic Surfaces
  • Prof. Doris Vollmer, Max Planck Institute, Drops on lubricant impregnated surfaces: statics & dynamics
  • Prof. Frieder Mugele, University of Twente, Ion adsorption at mineral-electrolyte interfaces: from atomic scale AFM imaging to macroscopic wetting alteration
  • Prof. Lei Jiang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Smart Interfacial Materials from Super-Wettability to Binary
  • Prof. David Quéré, ESPCI, title to be announced
