Applications now open for the 1st International Gas Adsorption Summer School
Applications are now open for the 1st International Gas Adsorption Summer School, to be held on the Greek island of Spetses from 9th to 14th September 2019.
The School will be able to host around 35 attendees. To apply, candidates should fill out and submit an application form, with some details about their motivation for attending.
