Workshop Details
VIRTUAL WORKSHOP - Interfacial Molecular and Electronic Structure and Dynamics
06/13/2020 - 06/17/2020
Meeting Description:

This workshop will provide a forum for presentation, discussion, and collaboration leading to frontier developments pertaining to interfacial chemical processes. These processes are broadly defined to include those occurring at both molecular and macroscopic interfaces, such as solid-liquid-vapor interfaces, the solvation-shells of ions, molecules, nano-particles, biological macromolecules and mesoscopic assemblies. The focus of this meeting is on understanding, predicting, and utilizing ways in which the molecular and electronic properties of such interfaces differ from those of bulk materials. This workshop is expected to highlight current experimental and theoretical debates and challenges concerning the distribution of both ions and other species at the interface, including hydrated electrons, the charge of air-water and oil-water interfaces, the affinity of various atomic and molecular ions for such interfaces, and solute-solvent charge transfer and its influence on the thermodynamics and spectroscopic observables.


The meeting includes breakfast, a catered lunch on Monday, and a picnic dinner on Wednesday.

Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Saturday through Wednesday. Discounted lodging rates end after Tuesday night. If your flight is on Thursday out of Montrose, we recommend having dinner in Telluride on Wednesday 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, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at Please contact Cindy Fusting at for more information.
