Water: Grand Challenges for Molecular Science and Engineering
06/16/2019 - 06/20/2019
Meeting Description:

Water is one of our most important natural resources, and touches our lives in innumerable ways. There are many fascinating outstanding scientific questions involving water, and also challenges that call for more engineering solutions. These challenges include, for example, the widespread availability of clean water for personal use, agriculture, and industry, and the use of water in energy production. Water also impacts our lives greatly in the context of climate and atmospheric sciences, and biology, health and medicine. This workshop will bring together people in many disciplines (engineering, chemistry, biology, physics, atmospheric sciences, materials science, geological sciences, and environmental sciences) to tackle the above problems. A wide variety of processes (desalination, filtration, sensing, adsorption, red-ox reactions, aggregation and fouling, crystallization, and corrosion) will be discussed, as will a large range of materials (catalysts, polymer membranes, inorganic filters, reduced-dimensional nano-materials, surfactants and lipids, proteins and bio-inspired/bio-compatible materials). This workshop will also involve the basic science underlying these more applied processes and materials, including water in extreme conditions, ices (amorphous and crystalline), solutions/solvation/self-assembly, clathrates, confined and interfacial water, biomolecule hydration, and transport/nucleation/growth.

Notes:

Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Sunday through Thursday. Discounted lodging rates end after Wednesday night. If your flight is on Friday out of Montrose, we recommend having dinner in Telluride on Thursday night and taking Telluride Express to Montrose after dinner. TSRC scientists are eligible for the corporate rate ($119 + tax) at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
