Early Career Researchers in Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics

Event description

This event will be mainly sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics group. The group is interested in a range of problems, covering the properties of molecules and the behaviour of macroscopic matter and is an interdisciplinary enterprise, embracing synthetic chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, polymer science, biology, food science, materials and engineering. The aim of the workshop is to foster the interaction and networking of early career researchers while giving them the visibility they deserve. We envisage a mix of simulations, theory and experiments covering a range of topics within statistical mechanics such as disordered systems, membranes, liquids, phase separation, complex fluids, polymers, etc.

More specifically: - non-equilibrium disordered systems - active matter - membranes - industrial challenges - DNA nanotechnology - phase separation - glasses

All registered participants will be able to bring and present a poster. Conference dinner will be offered to all the participants.

Please proceed to register and pay on epay:
