This event is no longer available for registration.

The adsorption and behaviour of polymers at interfaces is a field of fundamental importance to a wide range of technologies and medicine. Terry Cosgrove, who retired in Autumn 2012, has made significant contributions to the field over the last 40 years. This conference will celebrate his outstanding career. A number of Terry's close associates, past and present, have agreed to speak at what promises to be an entertaining review of the field and Terry's impact on it.
