Workshop Details
Hydrophobicity: From Theory, to Simulation, to Experiment
06/26/2022 - 06/30/2022
Meeting Description:

Hydrophobicity remains to be a very active, and somewhat controversial, research field despite the extensive studies from both experimental and theoretical approaches. The emerging current interest on superhydrophobic surfaces has not only introduced many industrial applications, but also led to a new conceptual widening of the term "hydrophobicity". Many recent research activities focus on nanoscale dewetting, confined water dynamics, Janus interface, surface topography effect, salt ion effect, superhydrophobic surface design, and so on. However, uncovering the underlying molecular mechanism of various complex systems still presents a major challenge and is thus the subject of many ongoing experimental and theoretical efforts. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together contributors in this multi-disciplinary field (physical chemists, biologists, material scientists, and nanotechnologists) to discuss recent advances and challenges in this exciting field.


If you are interested in attending a meeting, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer about availability before registering. Most TSRC meetings are very small, typically only about 25 people.

Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Sunday through Thursday.

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.

IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Sunday through Thursday. The 4th of July lodging rates will go into effect on the night of Thursday the 30th. To avoid the rate increase, you should depart on the evening of the 30th. If your flight out of Montrose does not leave until Friday the 1st, TSRC suggests eating dinner in Telluride on the night of the 30th, taking the shuttle to Montrose after dinner, and staying at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.
