Workshop Details
Thermal Transport at the Nanoscale
06/16/2019 - 06/20/2019
Meeting Description:

This workshop will bring together theoretical, computational, and experimental researchers from across science and engineering to discuss thermal transport at the nanoscale. Topics will include, but are not limited to: (i) transport in nanostructured and biological materials, (ii) experimental techniques for measuring thermal conductivity and thermal interface conductance, and for characterizing individual phonon modes, (iii) using input from electronic structure calculations and molecular simulations to predict thermal transport properties, and (iv) applications to nanoscale energy conversion.


The registration fee also includes five breakfasts, picnic dinner on Wednesday, and a workshop group dinner at Rustico, a fine-dining establishment in Telluride.

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.
