XLIV Zakopane School of Physics,
Breaking Frontiers: Submicron Structures in Physics and Biology

will be held in Zakopane (Poland) from 18th to 23rd May, 2009. The symposium is organized by the Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow. Our symposium, for historical reason called School, has been organized since 1963.

This year the School will cover the following topics:

* Low dimensional materials: from design, characterization to applications
- design, synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials
- coatings, multilayers, thin films, nanoparticles
- nanopatterning – pre- and post-growth processing, self-assembly and self-organization
- biological applications of nanostructured materials and nanoscaled magnetoelectronics
* Biophysics and medical applications
- DNA, cell and tissue damage
- influence of external factors on cells and tissues properties
- biofilms and biomaterials, bio-markers and bio-sensors
- molecular and intercellular interactions
* Environment and protection
- photosynthesis
- heavy metal stress, pollution, corrosion
- protection mechanisms evolved by living organisms,
- monitoring and protection
- renewable sources of energy
