Catalysis meets Sensing

This is a one-day workshop on February 6, 2015, with talks given by 6 invited speakers.

Location: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Senatssaal, Geb. 11.30, Campus South

Time: 9.00 - 17.00 h

Invited speakers:

Dr. Cyril Aymonier (Bordeaux)

Prof. Uli Simon (Aachen)

Prof. Ralph Moos (Bayreuth)
