11th International Workshop on Engineering of Functional Interfaces (EnFI 2018)
July 01, 2018 to July 03, 2018 at Leucorea in Wittenberg/Germany

The International Steering Committee, the Scientific Advisory Board & the Local Organizing Committee are cordially inviting you to participate in the 11th edition of the EnFI workshops. EnFI 2018 will be organized by the Kurt-Schwabe-Institut für Mess- und Sensortechnik e.V. Meinsberg/Germany on July 01 - July 03 at the Leucorea in Wittenberg/Germany.

EnFI is an interdisciplinary workshop for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers and covers all aspects of functional interfaces from materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering to medicine and biology.
