Dear Friends, dear Colleagues.
It was exactly 20 years ago in October that we presented the first poster on the "Buildup of Ultrathin Multilayer Films by a Self-Assembly Process 1. Consecutive Adsorption of Anionic and Cationic Bipolar Amphiphiles on Charged Surfaces" on occasion of the Third European Conference on Organic Organized Thin Films (ECOF ’90) that was held in Mainz Germany from October 11-13, 1990. A first oral presentation including polyanion/polycation assembly followed at the "Makromolekulares Kolloquium 1991" held in Freiburg from February 28 - March 2, 1991 and the first publication appeared in June 1991 (Makromol. Chem., Macromol. Symp. 46, 321-327 (1991).)
Of course we should not let this occasion pass by and we have therefore started to think about celebrating what has occupied so many of us to some extend over the last years. Layer-by-layer assembly has become an enormous success in these 20 years, in 2010 there were appearing 3 scientific articles per day in our field.
These thoughts have given rise to the idea to hold a meeting on :
The symposium will be held in Strasbourg, France from March 10-12, 2011.
Here is what we are planning for :
