Electrokinetics and Microfluidics

Microfluidics has spurred a renewed interest in electrokinetic and electrohydrodynamic phenomena, which offer unique ways of manipulating microscale fluid flows, particle motions, and interface dynamics.  This symposium welcomes experimental, theoretical, and computational papers concerning fundamental aspects of electrokinetic phenomena and their applications within microfluidic systems.  Specific topics of interests include, but are not limited to: fundamentals of electrokinetic phenomena; electrokinetics in porous media; electro-rheology; droplet and vesicle electrohydrodynamics; suspensions dynamics under electric fields; and novel applications in biophysics, electrochemistry, and micro/nanofluidics.
