ETOPIM conferences...

The first ETOPIM conference was held in Columbus, Ohio, in 1977 and has been followed by six other conferences at international locations. These conferences have provided a unique forum for experimentalists and theorists to get together and advance their understanding of the electrical transport and optical properties of inhomogeneous media.
