The course is an in-depth study of the synthesis, characterization, and properties of high polymer latexes. The subject matter includes a balance of theory and practical problems. Lectures will begin with introductory material and will progress through recent research results. Lectures will be given in English, and are held in the morning, the late afternoon, and the evening, with a large break in the afternoon to enjoy the recreational activities of the area and allow for interactions between the participants. See schedule for details. Organized hikes and visits to points in interest in and around Davos will be arranged for some of the afternoons.
