  > Overview
  >
  > Microsensors (pH, dissolved oxygen, and ion selective) are becoming
  > indispensable tools for studying biofilms and probing near surface
  > chemistries at the microscale level. The goal of this workshop is to
  > provide the participants with the knowledge necessary to design,
  > manufacture, and apply such microsensors. The workshop is being sponsored
  > by the Biofilm Structure and Function Research Group at the Center for
  > Biofilm Engineering, Montana State University. Members of this group have
  > extensive experience in the design, manufacture, and use of microsensors.
  > For details, please consult http://www.erc.montana.edu/.

  > Agenda
  > The workshop will be held from Monday, August 20, until Friday, August
24.
  > Daily activities include lectures, followed by hands-on lab sessions. On
  > Wednesday, August 22, there will be a field trip to Yellowstone National
  > Park, where the workshop participants will see how to use the
microsensors
  > in the field.
  >
  >       The following topics will be covered  during the workshop.
  >
  > Lectures topics
  >
  > *     Basic electrochemistry for microsensor operation
  > *     Potentiometric microsensors
  > *     Amperometric microsensors
  > *     Fiber optic microsensors
  > *     Components of microelectrodes, where to buy, how to stock
  > *     Description of construction process
  > *     Electrometers and picoammeters - basic principles and how to use
  > them with microsensors
  > *     Dissolved oxygen, H2O2, H2S, pH, CO2, diffusivity, local mass
  > transport microsensors
  > *     The last morning session will consist of a brief introduction to
  > biofilm reactors, biofilm preparation and quantifying biofilm structure
  >
  >
  > Laboratory practice sessions
  >
  > *     Construction and use of oxygen microelectrodes
  > *     Construction and use of H2O2 microelectrodes

  > Registration
  > Because the number of participants is limited,  reservations will be
  > accepted on a first come, first served basis. The cost of the workshop is
  > $2,500, which includes the workshop materials, the field trip to
  > Yellowstone National Park, a  farewell dinner, continental breakfast each
  > morning, and coffee during breaks. Participants are responsible for their
  > own accommodations and transportation (except the field trip to
  > Yellowstone National Park). The deadline for the registration is June 15,
  > 2001.
