The workshop on Structure and dynamics of confined and interfacial fluids: blending scattering and computer modeling techniques will take place at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in July. The organizers would like to put together a small group of about 25-30 leading scientists along with 25-30 young researchers (postdocs and students) to discuss recent progress in the field and take part in a thought process to identify the needs of the scientific community in the area of Neutron Science, Theory and Computer Modeling as applied to confined fluids. The number of participants has been limited in order to facilitate deeper interactions. In particular we would like to understand possible areas of cooperation and overlap between small-angle scattering, various kinds of spectroscopy, and how these experimental techniques can best be integrated with theory, modeling and computational methods.
The workshop will begin at 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday, July 16th and close at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, 19th. The format of the workshop will be a mixture of talks with an emphasis on a 5-10-year outlook in different scientific and technical fields, and discussion sessions. An agenda will be sent by June 5th with a requested title for your contribution.
There is no registration fee for the workshop and local hors d’oeuvres and a conference dinner will be covered by the workshop. A block of rooms is being reserved at the ORNL guest house and a number of hotels is available in Oak Ridge and surrounding area. Limited travel funds will be available. For travel assistance please contact Ava Ianni , (865) 241-8270.
