February 2012, Institute of Physics, London

This short course ran over three days, running a full programme of lectures on the first and third days, nd breaking at lunch on the second day to provide the opportunity to tour Imperial's facilities. This event attracted international attendees and speakers, and provided excellent opportunities for discussion and networking.

A copy of the schedule of talks is below, and the possibility is strong that this course will run again in the future given the very high level of positive feedback from attendees. If you would be interested in attending a future event please email the Institute Administrator, Ciara Mulholland, to join our mailing list.
