Join us for the next User group meeting!

User Group Meeting Announcement 19 Oct 2018 1pm-4pm EDT

Zum-1-19Oct2018 Zetasizer User MeetingWe are pleased to announce the first virtual Zetasizer User Meeting ZUM-1! This initiative is an effort to foster the diffusion of knowledge and experience between our support group and those researchers that regularly evaluate light scattering data from the Zetasizer. The Zetasizer Users Community is invited to present and share data with specific questions. Get live feedback from our panel of experts.

The meeting will be live-streamed via Webex and is limited to 3.0 hours. We anticipate staying close to the below agenda, to allow you to tune in to specific sessions. There will be several short presentations of ten minutes, followed by questions. If you would like to present some of your research related to the Zetasizer (time limit is 10 minutes max) please contact any of the organizers, the standard <> is our email format. Each section ends with a Q&A session for issues, suggestions, improvement, feedback and the meeting will be recorded for the benefit of those not able to join live.

We anticipate making this a regular event, depending on interest and participation.

Thanks for your consideration to join us at ZUM-1

The Organizing Panel: Ana Morfesis, Carrie Schindler, Ragy Ragheb, Ulf Nobbmann
