Elizabeth & Frederick White Conference - Frontiers in Gas-Solid Processes from the Atomic Scale to the Parsec

Date & time

8.30am 5 September – 5pm 7 September 2018

Event series


 Penny King

What: This conference covers the role of gas mixtures in distributing chemical elements, modifying materials & transferring heat from the atomic through parsec scales.

Why:   Advances in understanding gas-solid reactions form a  basis for improving removal of greenhouse gases from Earth’s atmosphere, enhancing models of volcanic processes, aiding ore deposit exploration, creating efficient energy storage approaches, & probing planet-forming regions beyond our solar system.

When:  5-7 September, 2018

Where:  Australian Academy of Science, Canberra


•  Fundamental processes in gas-solid interactions
•  Planets & stars
