Event description

Description

On Friday May 26th, the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick will host a workshop about research into interfacial phenomena in industry and health. Discussions will focus on three core subjects: the fundamentals and applications of diffusiophoresis, coronary microvascular flow, and the swelling of porous media. All researchers working in these and related topics are invited to attend and present research posters. The workshop will conclude with an inaugural lecture delivered by Professor Jacques Huyghe outlining his research ambitions at the University of Limerick and a lab tour showcasing the facilities of the newly created Bernal Institute.

Bernal Institute

The Bernal Institute is a €56M investment into a research facility comprising an 11,800 m2 building at the University of Limerick (www.bernalinstitute.com). The Bernal project expands research capacity in the Applied Sciences and Engineering though the provision of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, accommodating the Bernal Professors and their research groups to build a multidisciplinary team of world-leading engineers and scientists. In addition to the significant laboratory space, the building provides teaching facilities, including seminar rooms and a 200-capacity lecture hall. The Bernal project offers research groups exposure to world-class specialist academics along with the potential to strengthen cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Invited speakers

The workshop will feature keynote lectures from three invited speakers.

  • John L. Anderson, Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering and former president of the Illinois Institute of Technology, will provide an overview of early and contemporary research on diffusiophoresis, the motion of suspended particles in gradients of solute concentration.

  • Majid Hassanizadeh, Professor of Hydrogeology at Utrecht University, will speak about transport phenomena occurring at interfaces in porous media at different length scales.
  • Peter Bovendeerd, assistant professor at TU Eindhoven, will present the state of the art in cardiac modelling technologies.

Poster session

All attendees are encouraged to participate in an afternoon poster session. If you will present a poster, please select the "Workshop attendance with research poster" ticket. All presenters will have space for one A0 size (84 cm x 119 cm) poster.

Registration

The Registration fee is €50 and includes all meals for the day. Registration is now closed. Reduced registration rates are available for students (€25 excluding the workshop dinner and €40 including the dinner). Students may use the special discount codes ITPW-STUDENT and ITPW-STUDENT-NODINNER when registering to obtain these rates. Members of UL may contact the organisers to obtain a code for free registration.

Location

The workshop will be held in the Bernal Institute’s Analog Devices building. The University of Limerick is situated on a scenic 130 hectare campus along the River Shannon in Castletroy near the city of Limerick. Launched in November 2016, the Bernal Institute at the University of Limerick aims to expand Ireland’s research capabilities and grow the university as a world leader in several strategic areas. Shannon Airport is 35 minutes from the university.
