Workshop Details
POSTPONED TO 2022 - Ions in Solution: Biology, Energy, and Environment
08/03/2020 - 08/07/2020
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.


The registration fee includes breakfast on each workshop day. There is also a catered picnic on Wednesday night.

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.

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.
