This colloquium focuses on the mesoscopic physics of electrons, photons, matter waves and acoustic waves, in particular on their differences and their analogies. To this end we have invited internationally recognized scientists.

 

Lunch on Tuesday can be reserved for you at the local canteen (at the cost of 5 €, to be due on arrival). A conference dinner on Monday will be organized at the nearby Hotel du Guichet, at the reduced rate of 30 € per person. Posters can be presented during the coffee breaks.

 

Inscription is free for all interested scientists, including students and confirmed researchers.  Inscription is necessary if you wish to participate in lunch and dinner. To this end, please sign up by sending inscription-english or inscription-francais by E-mail to  meso-mars@grenoble.cnrs.fr BEFORE March 1, 2005.

 

You are requested to arrange your own lodging and transport (A list of nearby hotels). Members of the GDR IMCODE or the GDR Physique Mésoscopique Quantique who are unable to cover their travel and lodging can request for partial support.
