Simulation and Theory of Surfaces, Interfaces, and Complex Fluids

75th A.C.S. Colloid and Surface Science Symposium
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
June 10-13, 2001

Symposium Organizers:
M. Muthukumar
University of Massachusetts
David S. Sholl
Carnegie Mellon University

Theoretical and computational methods provide insights that may not be accessible to existing experimental techniques. This symposium will provide a forum for a wide range of theoretical and computational investigations of complex fluids, interfacial phenomena, and solid-state surfaces under ambient or ultra-high vacuum conditions. By including speakers with interests in a wide range of physical problems, we aim to encourage communication and comparison of ideas and methods across disciplines. Contributions dealing with methodological developments or applied research are welcome.


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
Colloidal suspensions
Polymer structure and dynamics
Micelles
Liquid crystals
Self-assembled nanostructures
Biologically inspired molecular assemblies
Pattern recognition by macromolecules
Electronic-structure methods for solid surfaces
Dynamics and structure of adsorbed layers

This symposium will feature a keynote lecture by
Prof. Arup Chakraborty, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of California at Berkeley
"Synaptic Pattern Formation at Intercellular Junctions"
