Workshop Details
Ions in Solution: Biology, Energy, and Environment
07/12/2016 - 07/16/2016
Meeting Description:

This workshop is aimed at recent developments in theory, modeling, and experiment related to ions in solutions of interest in biology, energy storage, and the environment. The focus will be on fundamental studies of the structure and thermodynamics of realistic models, including molecules and ions in water. These solutions are important in a wide range of problems, including specific ion effects in biology, ion channels, membranes, protein folding, and in multi-scale modeling beginning from a chemical level and building to the level of functional biomolecular structures. We wish to also include fundamental current work on nonaqueous systems, particularly electrolyte solutions in electrical energy storage and environmental applications. We also encourage pedagogical contributions on all basic aspects of electrolyte solutions.

The workshop discussion will include fundamental studies of molecular and ionic hydration, development of new theories and computational methods, and experimental work that will provide essential tests of theoretical predictions as well as motivation for new theoretical directions.


If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.
