Diffusion Fundamentals IX

September 21th – 24th, 2022, Kraków, Poland

Chairmen Rafał Abdank-Kozubski, Jörg Kärger

The organizers of the IXth edition of the Diffusion Fundamentals conference intend to continue the 16-years tradition of the series. Invitation to attend the conference is addressed to the wide milieu of scientists interested in diverse concepts of diffusion – understood not only as a movement of material bodies in all scales but also as any spreading phenomena in diverse areas of knowledge.

Diffusion Fundamentals VIII

September 1th – 5th, 2019, Elangen, Deutschland

Chairmen Andreas P. Fröba, Jörg Kärger, Alfred Leipertz, Michael H. Rausch

The international conference was organized by the Institute of Advanced Optical Technologies – Thermophysical Properties (AOT-TP). As a motto of the conference, the subtitle “Diffusion Phenomena Moving People” should point out that dedicated scientists from many different fields pursue their diffusion-related research with unlimited passion, not only the random movement of molecules, but also of, e.g., particles, words, information, and people can be described by diffusive transport, and experts from many diffusion-related research areas are hopefully motivated to travel to Erlangen for the next issue of the fruitful Diffusion Fundamentals conference series.

Diffusion Fundamentals VII
NUST «MIS&S»

July 3rd – 7th, 2017, Moscow, Russia

Chairmen Boris S. Bokstein, Alexey O. Rodin, Boris B. Straumal

The Diffusion Fundamentals Conferences are concerned with the phenomenon of random movement which is known to occur on molecular scales just as over macroscopic dimensions. Diffusion is thus among the major processes which decide over the final result of a large spectrum of phenomena. This made us suggest the question “Evolution or Degradation?“ as one of the key topics of this year’s “Diffusion Fundamentals” conference.

Diffusion Fundamentals VI

Diffusive Spreading in Nature, Technology and Society
Basic Principles of Theory, Experiment and Application

August 23rd - 26th, 2015; Dresden, Germany

Chairmen Jürgen Caro, Hans Wiesmeth

We invite you to participate in Diffusion Fundamentals VI in Dresden/Germany. As a ubiquitous process of random movement, ranging from molecular up to macroscopic and even cosmic scales, diffusion is key to spreading phenomena in quite diverse areas. Bringing together scientists from disciplines as different as archaeology, ecology, epidemics, ethnology, linguistics and sociology with biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers, Diffusion Fundamentals VI highlights the astonishingly similar patterns of spreading phenomena in Humanities, Natural Sciences and Engineering.

Diffusion Fundamentals V
Basic Principles of Theory, Experiment and Application

August 26rd - 28th, 2013; Leipzig, Germany

Chairmen Frank Cichos, Klaus Kroy

Diffusion is an ubiquitous dynamic transport process that shapes structures from the molecular to macroscopic and cosmic scales. In the context of soft matter physics, we often encounter it in the form of Brownian motion. Floppy meso-structures excited by thermal noise give rise to slow complex dynamics, susceptible to weak perturbations through heterogeneities and external fields. Diffusion Fundamentals V will cover a selection out of a large range of diffusion-related topics, including fundamental aspects as well as applications. The current program includes 6 different research areas covered by outstanding international scientists: 1. Active Brownian Motion, 2. Dynamics in Social and Animal Systems, 3.Biophysics & Single Molecules, 4.Nanopores and Nanoprobes, 5. Diffusion in Material Science and 6. Fluctuations, Optical Traps, Hot Colloids.

Diffusion Fundamentals III
Basic Principles of Theory, Experiment and Application

August 23rd - 26th, 2009; Athens, Greece

Chairmen Doros Theodorou, Nick Kanellopoulos, Christian Chmelik, Jörg Kärger

In the biennial series of meetings devoted to the basic principles of diffusion theory, experiment and application, researchers from the interdisciplinary fields of diffusion are invited to exchange the most recent results of research, which are of general interest to the whole community. All presentations are scheduled to address a broad, interdisciplinary audience avoiding parallel sessions.

Diffusion Fundamentals II
Basic Principles of Theory, Experiment and Application

August 26th - 29th, 2007; L'Aquila, Italy

Chairmen Stefano Brandani, Jörg Kärger, Roberto Volpe

Two years after the Diffusion Fundamentals I Conference in Leipzig, the world-wide community of researchers in the field of diffusion is invited to L'Aquila to highlight the current developments in the field. Following the tradition of Diffusion Fundamentals I a Conference Volume with paintings of L'Aquila by the Japanese physicist and artist Taro Ito will appear as a souvenir for all participants. Diffusion Fundamentals II is co-organized by University College London, University of Leipzig and University of L'Aquila.
