PMI Announces Dates for First 2010 Short Course

(openPR) - Porous Materials, Inc. (PMI) is happy to announce the dates for it's first Short Course for the new year. The course, titled "Pore Structure Characterization; Theory & Practice", will be held during the week of May 11-13, 2010.

The PMI Short Course brings together our experts in pore structure and characterization, as well as technical specialists from industries, research laboratories and universities, for three days of intensive lectures, discussions, and hands-on practice. The material presented addresses the theory and application of methods for determining pore structure and distribution in a wide variety of materials.

Attendees learn the basics and catch up on the latest advances in porosity characterization techniques. Our Short Course schedule will include plenty of time for one-on-one discussions with PMI's technical staff. Each day of the course is filled with fun and education, as on Monday and Friday, we offer tours of Ithaca attractions to the course attendees, taking them to local waterfalls & wineries, and offering a walking tour of Cornell University campus. We end each day with dinner at one of our fine local restaurants, which offer a variety of cuisines for everyone.
