The third international workshop on
Static-Tribo-Electricity of Powder

15-16, June, 2017
University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, Canada

STEP-3 (2017) will be held as a half-workshop, in association with the Annual Meeting of Electrostatics Society of America (ESA) which is held at University of Ottawa in June 2017. Attendees will give their presentations in the ESA meeting, followed by the STEP activity which includes a detailed roundtable discussion, laboratory tour, as well as an informal social gathering to conclude the STEP workshop.

STEP is a discussion-based international workshop on tribo-electricity and particle charging. The workshop scope covers a range of fundamental and applied topics related, but not limited to, the mechanism of generation of electrostatic charge, control of charged particles, measurement of electrostatic charge, and other topics related to tribo-electrisity. The workshop is open to all researchers and engineers in the field of Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and others. The STEP workshop provides an international forum to enable researchers and engineers in the field of tribo-electricity to have interactive dialog and to establish an international network.
