> 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 
> *	Construction and use of pH microelectrodes with LIX  membranes
> *	Construction and use of fiber optic microsensors
> *	Computer assisted micromanipulation and data acquisition
> *	Results interpretation

> 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.
