Complex Fluids Under Extreme Conditions

15th September 2015

University of Durham, Durham, UK

This one day meeting will gather researchers from the wide complex fluids community (polymers, colloids, lipids, interfaces) who have an interest in extreme conditions, such as pressure, temperature, confinement, and external fields. The meeting will include time for an extended poster session,  providing the opportunity for discussion and exchange of ideas in this exciting research area.


Invited Speakers

Professor Roland Winter, University of Dortmund, Germany
Title: Effects of Temperature, Pressure, Crowding and Osmolytes on the Interaction Potential and Phase Behavior of Concentrated Protein Solutions

Professor Glen McHale, University of Northumbria, UK
Title: Structured, Shaped and Slippery Interfaces

Dr Valeria Garbin, Imperial College London, UK
Title: Extreme deformation of complex fluid interfaces

Dr Hugo Christenson, University of Leeds, UK
Title: Freezing of Liquids in Confinement

The meeting is organised by the Institute of Physics Liquids and Complex Fluids Group. For more information, please contact Dr Lorna Dougan ( and Dr Margarita Staykova (
