One day workshop on Wetting of surfaces (WoW-2018) was organised by Collids and Materials Chemistry Department, CSIR-Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology, Bhubaneswar to discuss on various aspects of wetting behaviour of surfaces with the aim at providing interdisciplinary platform for deliberation on advanced research concepts and innovative ideas in the fields of surface wetting phenomena.

Experts from IIT Kanpur, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Bhubaneswar, NISER Bhubaneswar delivered thought provoking lectures and shared their vast knowledge and experiences in the related field. Each topic of invited lectures was related to surface wetting phenomenon, however, each of them were original and diverse in terms of it’s application and perspectives for new technological interventions.

The workshop concluded with the comments from all experts and all of the participants. All delegates expressed their willingness to make this event at a bigger scale in near future. Suggestion of incorporation of industry related people also popped up with the view to mitigate cutting edge practical problems in surface wetting and to strengthen industry-academia collaboration.
