Mössbauer Spectroscopy
in Materials Science 2018

Dear Colleague,

We would like to draw your attention to the Mössbauer Spectroscopy in Materials Science Conference (MSMS 2018) to be held from June 25 to June 28, 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.

The conference is organized in honour of Dr. Karel Zaveta (Charles University in Prague,
Czech Republic) on the occasion of his 85th birthday, Dr. Oldrich Schneeweiss (Institute of Physics of Materials of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Brno, Czech Republic) on the occasion of his 70th birthday and prof. Miloslav Maslan (Palacky University Olomouc, Czech Republic) on the occasion of his 60th birthday to celebrate their life-long scientific contribution, particularly to the field of Mössbauer Spectroscopy, magnetic phenomena, nanoparticles, etc.

We welcome your active participation and discussion in the MSMS 2018. Invited speakers will present significant recent developments and new applications in the Mössbauer Spectroscopy, characterisation and fundamental properties of materials and outline future perspectives. Their contributions will be complemented by oral presentations from conference participants.

Looking forward to meeting you at the MSMS 2018,

Adriana Lančok
chair of the conference
