Workshop Details
Molecular Engineering of Soft Matter: Spanning Small Molecules to Macromolecules
06/20/2023 - 06/24/2023
Meeting Description:

Molecular engineering is an emerging field that employs molecular level precision to control macroscopic properties of materials that can impact a wide range of technologies. Developing such designer materials has major challenges from the synthesis, characterization, and computational standpoints, primarily because these materials and their associated physical phenomena span multiple length and time scales. This field has attracted interest from a broad community of researchers with expertise in-biofunctional and bioinspired materials, nanomaterials, organic electronics, polymer physics, surface chemistry, biophysics, condensed matter theory, statistical mechanics, molecular simulations, and software development, among others.

This molecular engineering workshop is to bring together scientific leaders that design and
characterize molecules and systems the process inspires new molecular designs for fields as diverse as energy, healthcare, or technology. The workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry, and national labs with the goal to cross-pollinate research ideas, carve new collaborations, to continue to push the envelope of this exciting field of research.


IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Discounted lodging rates begin on Monday, June 19th. If you are planning to arrive on Sunday, you can stay at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport and come up to Telluride first thing on Monday. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

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, 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.
