Symposium focusing on the research of Daan Frenkel, laureate of the 2015 Bakhuis Roozeboom Medal. He will receive the medal for the outstanding contribution that his creative computer simulations have made to the development of phase theory, the science that studies the behaviour of matter under changing circumstances.

About the Bakhuis Roozeboom Medal
The Bakhuis Roozeboom Medal is awarded to researchers who have made significant contributions to phase theory, the science that studies the behaviour of matter under changing circumstances of pressure, temperature and composition. Phase theory can be applied in physical chemistry, physics, metallurgy, geochemistry, and astrophysics. The medal was established in 1911 to recognise the work of the physicist Prof. H.W. Bakhuis Roozeboom (1854-1907).
